|These are all desert & tropical seeds I collected from the Island of Tenerife of the Canary Islands last February 2012. Seed species are Paloverde, Poinciana (Mexican Bird of Paradise Bush) , etc.|
Continuation of progress:
This is an update on seed growth only 5 days after germination. We left on a Wednesday June 27, 2012. The two photos below are of of the germinated seeds of both Poincianna (Mexican Red Bird of Paradise and common southwestern Desert Paloverde Tree, both with similar characteristics and requirements as Mesquite, though Paloverde and Catsclaw are closer.
