I thought they were podocarpus seeds but now they've starting sprouting I don't think it's a conifer anymore. Any clue?
I'm not sure what you have. The seedlings only show the cotyledons but will show a character leaf soon and it'll be easier to ID. Any chance you can gt a pic original tree?
Yes I guess when true leaves come it might be easier to ID, but I'm a little anxious because of the strange looking of cotyledons (at least they seem unusual to me).
No chance I could get a pic of the adult tree. I collected the seeds on the local botanical garden below a huge podocarpus, but seeds where from the droppings below a fruit eater bird nest (rather disgusting but could'n resist the collecting job already done!) so It could be any fruit bearing tree on the garden, and thou I know most of them, this one keeps eluding me...
I can't ask the stuff of the garden neither because of poor knowledge and care the have about everything... I'll post new pics in some days when they've grown a little more. Thanks.
I'm still not sure. Leaves remind me of Hamamelis, Platanus, etc.
Still not sure what they are, but the seeds are definitely not Hamamelis, nor Platanus. A mystery!
