> Mr. Scherberich: We have been reasonably
sucessful in sending seeds through the regular mail to places as far
away as Australia but simply removing the sugar-containing pericarp and
mesocarp, then wrapping them in a bit of regular newspaper and
enveloping in small plastic bags. Then they are mailed in a regular
envelope with sheets of bubble-pack. Shipments of several weeks do not
seem to affect them this way. We have a large collection of Anthurium
and do get fruit production on some owing to our own pollination
efforts. Could you send us a list of the species you have and what you
might be willing to accept. The cost to you would not be excessive
since we are not a commercial nursery but we would have to reimbursed
for the preparation and shipping costs. We don't always have the time
to collect and process material but if we knew of your interest we are
sometimes able to entertain the possibility of sending seed.
