I would love to have seeds of Z. aethiopica (aethiopica is the name I was
wanting to know), and my sister is the one who has the plant. Would you
know if it will produce viable seed all on it's own?

Speaking of seed, I now have 6 A. amurense and 9 heteraphyllum, all around
4" tall. I just transfered them (bubble tray and all) out into my heated
greenhouse. I started them in course sand which they are still in. Sand is
a pretty scarry medium to germinate them in because I thought I lost them
all when some started to rot (from being too wet), so I opened the top to
rid them of some moisture and it dried out so quick that I almost lost them
from desiccation! Still, most of them have germinated. If I remember
correctly, they should grow on in this container until they go dormant?
Should I change their soil, or can I plant them outside when the weather
permits? What do you suggest? You probably already mentioned this, but do
they need food (especially in the sand)?

Thanks for the note,
