  Syngonium seeds
From: "Windy Aubrey" <exotics at hawaii.rr.com> on 2009.07.26 at 18:49:08(19587)

Hi, Everyone,

I remember a while back someone was asking for Syngonium seeds for a project they were working on.

Where I live Syngoniums are growing wild, but I never came across any seed.

Today while walking my dogs in the woods I came across a fallen tree with a large Sygonium vining on it, and there it was ripe Syngonium seeds! I heard these seeds are tasty, so luckily no wild chickens or rats had found them first.

I will put these seeds into the refrigerator for a while in hopes the person who inquired is still out there, or someone who remembers this query, contacts me.

Dear Windy and Friends,

My old friend Vic Soukup was the person searching for the seeds of MANY genera of aroids.
I had sent him seeds of what I think was escapee Syngonium podophyllum collected here in S. Florida growing on a huge Cypress tree on the edge of the Everglades.  This and other escaped aroid species are common, and in some instances have become real invasive and a pest here in the South.

Hopefully Vic will contact you.

The Best,
