Heliconia magnifica ripe fruits

 List of available SEEDS:

 August 2017

 

 

(Para información en ESPAÑOL sobre las semillas de heliconias, jengibres ornamentales y frutales tropicales que tengamos disponible, métodos de pago, etc., le rogamos ver más abajo en esta misma página)

We offer a good selection of Heliconia and ornamental ginger seeds. Seeds of tropical fruits that may be in season, some flowering trees, and some butterfly host plant seeds are also seasonally available. All are collected at our farm in Las Marias, Puerto Rico, from organically grown plants.

We guarantee our seeds. If you're not totally satisfied with your seed order, just return the package, and we'll refund any payment including shipping costs, no questions asked.

For our regular seed packets, we ask a donation of $5.00 USD each, to cover costs, plus shipping. The number of seeds per packet will depend on: plant species, seed size, and availability. Most packets contain 10-12 seeds each. Bonus seeds are always added to every order. BULK packs are also offered when we have plenty of seeds of any species; please read on for further information.

If you're interested in ordering seeds, just send us a simple list of those you want, specifying regular packets or BULK Packs. We'll verify availability, suggest a total, and send instructions for PayPal or Western Union. Orders are shipped soon after payment is confirmed. You'll find our email address at the end of this page if you need further information on obtaining seeds from us. Maximum packets per international friends: ten (10).

PLEASE NOTE: Only those species marked with a small "x" on the table below are currently available. Others will eventually be available during the year.

BULK PACKS of heliconia, ginger, and tropical fruit seeds are sometimes available and are always posted on our Seeds page under the "Bulk" column. These are also very fresh seeds that can be offered when we have plenty of seeds of any given species. BULK Packs are always marked with a big "X" on the right column. Please email us if you need additional information.

SHIPPING within the USA and its Territories starts at $2.50 for HELICONIA and/or GINGER seed packets.

*INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Due to a recent, significant increase in postage costs, regular international shipping now starts at $13.75 USD for seed orders, even small ones. We don't profit from shipping costs. International orders are shipped via regular international air mail shipping only; no International Express or International Registered Mail will be available; it's costly for the buyer, and package arrival cannot be guaranteed once it leaves American soil. 

Some countries prohibit the import of seeds. Australian customers must be aware that seeds of some Heliconia species are not allowed in. Please check AQIS' List of Permitted Species online at: www.aqis.gov.au.

Please give us at least TEN (10) days to process your order. We may be able to ship your seeds very quickly some times, but often times we need additional time to pack and ship them well. Our seeds are carefully cleaned, and hand packed, and this is time consuming. Orders are always processed in the same order as they're received.

When there are harsh winter conditions in your area, please be aware that these are TROPICAL seeds that require warm temperatures to germinate. We cannot be made responsible for seeds lost to cold weather, nor do we want to expose valuable seeds to harsh conditions.

Our heliconia seeds (and some of our gingers) are packed in a moist medium: this greatly improves their germination rate. Some of your seeds may even germinate in transit. Sorry, but we  never ship dry Heliconia seeds.

EN ESPAÑOL: Las semillas de HELICONIA, jengibres ornamentales y/o frutales tropicales que tenemos disponible aparecen marcadas con una "x" en la tabla que sigue. Tendremos otras especies en la lista en algún momento durante el año, de acuerdo a la etapa de floración de cada una. Los paquetitos regulares contienen de 10 - 12 semillas, pero la cantidad puede ser mayor o menor en algunos casos, segun se especifica. Las semillas de heliconia siempre son enviadas envueltas en pedazos de papel húmedo, para evitar que se sequen en tránsito. Las órdenes de semillas pueden ser solicitadas a través de un correo electrónico (o por teléfono), y entonces le damos el total a pagar. Donaciones para cubrir costos de semillas y envios por correo son a través de Western Union y/o PayPal. Esté seguro (antes de ordenar) que estas semillas no estén reguladas por las autoridades agrícolas/sanitarias de su país. Generalmente enviamos las semillas por correo; los residentes de Puerto Rico pueden recogerlas personalmente si nos llaman antes y nos ponemos de acuerdo para el día y hora de su visita. Cualquier pregunta en cuanto a precios, cantidades mayores de semillas, información sobre otras especies, etc. pueden escribirnos al correo electrónico que aparece al final de esta página o llamarnos por teléfono en horas de la tarde. Con mucho gusto les atenderemos. Muchísimas gracias !
