I looked to "Florida Wildffowers Growers" for boehmeria cylindrica. They were the only company I found who had this seed and would ship internationally. The seeds were mailed Dec 28 and arrived Jan 13, which is a very good arrival time between Florida and Mexico. The seeds are well packaged (although the "how to" information is sparse) with a photo of the plant on the seed packet (a photo of the first two leaves would be more useful). The germination results are not yet known. Still, I am delighted to have seeds of this plant for my neotropical butterfly garden and I'm hoping for good germination results.
