No wonder you dont offer seeds anymore. PLease let me know how you will accomodate my request.

I should have read the above comment. I also ordered these seeds but not a single one germinated. Only one of the B. nitida seeds germinated. Also not one of the B. gigantea seeds germinated as well.

Last year while visiting in Floria I purchased some brunfelsia americana seeds from you but infortunately not a single one has germinated. Had I read the previous comments I wouldn't have ordered any of these seeds from Top Tropicals.

I have several night Jasmine in my yard and a neighbor told me my plants were actually the lady of the night species. I felt he was wrong and set out to discover if the two were the same plant with different names. My neighbor was incorrect.

The lady of the night is a different plant than the night jasmine. The commonality is that both bloom at nightfall emitting intoxicating perfume into the night air.The lady of the night in my opinion, has a smell of cloves and cinnamon.Very nice. The plant is Thin and frail and not all that attractive.

But the aroma is worth it's weight in gold. Because I live in Central Florida I am able to grow the lady of the night in my very own backyard. What a deal!!!

Seriously folks, after reading other gardeners sad experiences with Brunfelsia seeds, I felt compelled to tell you what I learnt the hard way; that most tropical seeds should be sown ASAP;you can't let them sit around in the packages as you would more temperate region seed. I have grown Brunfelsia from seed,& my best results were with seeds I harvested from fresh Brunfelsia fruit; I cleaned,& dried the seeds,then planted them(after an overnight soak in a lukewarm kelp/water solution(NOT chlorinated tapwater;try distilled, filtered, spring or wellwater- This is optional,but seems to help).Gibberellic acids supposedly help older seeds sprout,haven't tried it yet.

I brought my plants as 3 inch bare roots from Puerto Rico. One planted they were slow to grow, but once they got started it was like magic. Brunfelsia spreeds by subterranian runners, we have been digging out new plants for over 5 years. They seem to do better in sunny location and have survived temperatures to 30 degrees with a blanket over the plants. They may drop some leaves but come back stronger once the cold is over.
