Q1. What should I do if it is past the estimated delivery date and I have not received my parcel yet?
We are sorry to hear this. If the parcel still hasn't arrived on the estimated delivery date, please inform us and let us know how we can help you before you leave the negative feedback! There are so many reasons for the delay in shipping. Most of the time it is because the parcel goes through inspection at the customs causing a delay in arriving time. When the parcel arrives, please take a look on the post mark, then you'll know the shipping date! We always ship the parcel right after we complete the application of the phytosanitary certificate. If we delay the shipping schedule, we'll inform you via e-mail. We appreciate your understanding!

Q2. Australia has a strict quarantine process. Is there any thing I should know, before purchasing seeds?
We have an extensive experience in exporting seeds to Australia.
First we will apply the quarantine/phytosanitary certificate in Taiwan, and we will ship seeds in a zipper bag and put inside a sealed envelope enclosed with the quarantine certificate and invoice.  It might take a few days for the parcel to leave the customs or quarantine bureau in Australia.
We care about the quality of seeds, so there may not be any problem at all.
In this situation, there may be a delay in delivery time.  But if you have any problems, please do contact us as soon as possible, we'll do our best to help you.

Q3. If I live in Brazil, can I purchase grafted plants and seeds?
First, we're sorry to inform that we've stopped selling any grafted and plants now.
As for exporting seeds, the Custom in Brazil doesn't admit the quarantine certificate from Taiwan, even though we've tried so many ways to resolve this problem, but nothing has worked so far.  From now on, the seeds we send to Brazil all will be sent via Ordinary mail, and ordinary mail will not have the tracking number also it might take 20~30 days to arrive in Brazil.  It has also some risks.  But it's a proper way to send the seeds to Brazil now.  Moreover, if you purchase over 3000 seeds in one time, then we'll package seeds in two different parcels (no need to pay extra shipping fee), just in case it is held at Customs.  Therefore, we hope the customers living in Brazil, if you have any questions, please inform us before you purchase the seeds.  We'll be really grateful for it.

Q4. When will you send the seeds to me after I win the bidding?

We will ship your order after you complete the payment and we complete the quarantine certificate process of the seeds.
Once your order has been shipped, you will be sent a confirmation email.

Back to Top

Q5. Why should I subjoin my phone number with my address?
In our experience, it helps the postman contact you if you are not home when the parcel arrives.

Back to Top

Q6. May I combine the shipping fee with the items I m still bidding on?
We're able to do so, but please kindly inform us as soon as possible.
We only could combine you order for 2 weeks (most), the items you purchase should be checked out on the second week whether you win the items on the second week or not. 

Back to Top

Q7. What happens if my parcel is sent back to Taiwan?
In general, if nobody is present to receive the delivery, you will find a note in your mailbox, stating that they tried to deliver your package or they will call you to inform. Therefore, please subjoin your phone number behind your address, because it helps postman contact with you if you are not home. On the note you will find instructions about what to do. In most cases you don't have to do anything, and the package is offered again the next day.

If multiple delivery attempts failed and you failed to collect your order at the pickup point within allocated time, then post office will return the parcel back to Taiwan. In our experience, the parcel will take more than a month to arrive. In order to maintain our good qualities and credit, we suggest buyers to replace a new one. However, we will charge you extra 30% replacement fee and shipping fee. Therefore if you do not receive your order for a long time, we recommend you to call the post office or go to the nearest post office to learn the whereabouts of your parcel with tracking number information.

Q8. If I want to pay by mailing cash to you, why can't I mail the older version of U.S. dollar bills?
Most of the banks in Taiwan have latest US dollar bill detector, and the machines only recognizes new version US dollar bills.

Back to Top

Q9. What should I do if my purchase amount is not over USD$100 and I can't pay via PayPal?
Usually, if the amount is not over USD$100, we strongly suggest you make payment via PayPal.  But if you need to make payment by mailing us cash, please note that we only accept cash and only accept new edition USD. (Please ask the bank teller to give you the new edition USD   Moreover, we don't accept the check.

If you're going to mail us your payment. We suggest you can wrap the money with thicker paper and put into an envelope for safety. 
Because transferring the money via banks would charge extra handling fee for both buyer and seller.  I have to pay USD$25 handling fee for bank each time I receive a payment.
Therefore, I highly recommend all customers  if you can't make payment via PayPal, then please make payment by mailing us the cash (registered mail) if your order is less than USD$100.

Back to Top

Q10. Why has not my parcel arrived yet?
According to our experiences, there might be two reasons to explain this situation.  First, if this is your first time purchasing the seeds from us.  Therefore, the Customs in your country will not have your registration, it will be examined strictly.  Normally, it will take about 14 days to arrive the destination. But, when you purchase next time, the procedure of delivery will be more smooth.

The second reason might be the postman tried to deliver the parcel yet there was no one to receive it and the parcel might be at the pickup point waiting to be collected. That is the reason why we request our customers to provide their telephone number for us, so that the postman can inform you.

If you do not receive the parcel in the estimated delivery time, then please kindly inform us again, we'll do our best to help you.  Thanks!

Back to Top

Q11. Why do we use the registered mail to ship the parcel, can't we use the regular mail?
Because the registered mail is trackable and more secure. You can use the serial number to trace the parcel easily.
It is convenient for both seller and buyer.
If the parcel is sent via ordinary mail, no additional info will be updated after departure. it is not traceble if the parcel is lost during transit.
We can't guarantee for the parcel will not disappear during the delivery.
Unless you ask us to send the parcel by this method, we'll send the parcel by registered mail (except Brazil).

Q12. How are the mixed 100 seeds being packed?
There are 10 varieties and each variety are contain 10 seeds;
They are separately packaged with each varieties.  Therefore, there are 10 small packages in one big package.

Back to Top

Q13. What is the best way to store the seeds, if I am not going to sow them now?
We suggest that you could store the seeds in a jar with a lid, better with a desiccant, and you put the jar in a dry and dark place.
Please note that the stored temperature couldn't be too high(better not over 28 degrees) and do not put seeds in the refrigerator, either.
the preserved time could reach about 3-6 months according to different storage ways, but we suggest that it's better to finish sowing within 3-6 months and the seeds still have good germination rate after passing store time.

Because it is autumn and winter, it is not suitable for sowing.
If you don't plan to plant seeds in nearly time, we suggest that dont purchase seeds now because if you dont store very well, the germination rate will decrease through time passing,

Back to Top

Q14. Do you sell any grafted plants now?
We're sorry to inform all the Adenium lovers here, we've stopped selling grafted plants now. We only sell the seeds.  But if we restart selling the grafted plants, we'll re-list them on our eBay shop, hope you can understand. 

Back to Top

Q15. It's my first time to sow Adenium seeds, can you give me any advice?
Our seeds are dry and in complete dormancy to preventing from wetness in case they are ruined by mildew during transit.
After you receive the seeds, you must soak them in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing in order to increase the germination rate.  After sowing, you should keep the soil wet for 10 days until the sprouts appear. 
Please take care of the temperature, which will affect the germination rate directly. The suitable temperature is between 23-35
XC.  Before you prepare for sowing, you should check out the weather forecast and make sure that the weather will continuously be sunny for the following 7 days.  Or it will affect the germination rate.

The following links are very useful for learning to sow the Adeniums better LINK1 LINK2 LINK3 

PS. In rainy days, please don't water them and remember to move them indoors.

Q16.Why do I need to make a reservation for the seeds, grafts or plants in advance?
There are lots of variables affecting the availability of seeds and grafted plants, such as
the success rate of grafting and pollination, the weather, the growth rate, etc.
Some varieties of seeds and grafts may not be available, we will add it in our online shop Shopify when available.
You could check there or you could inquire via e-mail before purchasing. Our goal is to meet your expectation by providing the best plants and seeds.

Q17. May I appoint paternal or maternal origins of seeds I order?
Many customers ask for proof of maternal origins in order to meet
the agricultural requirements of the respective countries,
and clients in the field of research may ask for both paternal and maternal certificate.
When we receive the order and if it asks for paternal or maternal origins,
it may take 4~7 months to complete the entire process.
Also, clients will be required to pay a half of the total payment in advance.

Q18. Why does not the adenium grow seedpods easily?
Because the adenium cannot pollinate by itself, it does not grow seedpods easily.
It needs other flowers that can be on the same plant to help complete pollination.
Other than the help of insects, it really requires artificial pollinating.
To be able to perform the task of artificial pollinating,
one must fully understand the structures of the adenium in advance.
Pic-1 The adenium does not really presents its pistils and stamen, but they are hidden inside the throat.
1. Use a pair of scissors to cut off 2/3 of the flower's throat.
Be careful not to cut off the five filaments because the stamen is inside of the filaments.
These five filaments will be in shapes of upside down funnels, and the pollen is inside the top of the filaments.
The color of the pollen is yellowish.
2. To retrieve the pollen, one can simply pull off the tip of two filaments.
As you pull off the two filaments to retrieve pollen, you will notice pollen is not much,
so you need to be very careful for manipulate. If you are not careful enough,
it is very likely that you will lose the pollen.
3. Gradually removing the rest of the filaments and pistils that are wrapped by the filaments will be revealed.
Place the pollens at the sticky area on top of the pistils.
4. When you have finished the above steps, your have successfully cross-pollinated the flower.
5. A good proof that you have successfully conducted pollination is that the flower will drop after a couple of days. Then waiting for one or two more days, the calyx should turn slightly red and will be getting bigger and bigger.
6. The best time to cross-pollinate is after adenium blooming for 2~3 days and it can be operated anytime.

Q19. How do I take care of my seedpods?
1.You can wrap the seedpods inside panty hoses.
2.If you think panty hose are a bit weird and will feel embarrassed
if your neighbors gossips about your flower,
you can tape it or tie it up with a rubber band so the seeds will not fly away.
However, please make sure not to bind them too tight.
When the seedpods are nearly matured,
the appearances will turn a bit yellow and after 2~3 days the seedpods will start to open.
If you do not tie up your seedpods before they open, the seeds with furry ends will start to fly away.

Q20. What are the tactics for a successful seedling germination?
Picture of Sowing Experiences
1. Blocking 50% of the sunlight that directly beam at the plant.
Because blocking 50% sunlight will create a better climate and environment for the seeds to grow.
The temperature about 25~
35
XC is the most suitable for growing seeds.
2. After sowing seeds, the material and soil need to be abundant watered within 10 days.
(Before the Desert Rose sprout out its first two leaves, it is not afraid of water).
3. The se
eds should be placed horizontally into the basins or trays.
The be
st depth under the cultivating materials would be 1 cm.
4. For successful germination,
half would go to the quality of the seed and the other half goes to how you water the your seeds
under 20~35
XC for the next 15 days
(if the temperature is lower than 18
XC, it will not germinate as expected).
Please keep the soil moist and watering by spray. Don't water them by watering pipes.
If you realize the key of these steps, germinating rate would be as high as 95%.

Back to Top

Q21. Why did some seeds sprout, some others didn't start to sprout?
In general, our seeds will take 5~ 14 days to germinate.
It is normal, because our seeds are all dry.
So, it will take time to start to germinate after you planted them.
Some of them may have prompt germination, so they sprout faster than the rest ones.
It will be ok. We think the seeds will germinate continually.

Back to Top

Q22. What is the difference if I purchase designated red breeds and non designated red breeds?
If you just tell us you want to purchase red breeds,
it meant you do not designate its name, so it meant all the red breeds.
The Red-mixed breeds will not have specific stock plant to produce the seeds,
and we all use hand pollinate.
If you designate its name of red breeds, the price will be a little expensive than non designated seeds.
But, the designated red seeds, we can guarantee it will produce from the specific stock plant.

Back to Top

Q23. What should I do if the germination rate is below average?
If you have the problem that the germination rate is not good, please inform us as soon as possible.
Thus, we can check with other customers who have bought our seeds at same time and record if the seeds harvested at the same time face the same situation with you. If the feedback of germination rate from other customers is good, we will handle it
according to your germination rate information
. We record our seeds situation and improve our seeds quality better during the production and the harvest season.
We have been a reliable seller on ebay for many years. Please don't worry to purchase our seeds.
We will do our best to serve our customers.

Q24. I have a question. On the hybrid seeds that you do not show the parents as A x B, but just the single single, are they selfings, remakes, or back crosses? Also on your newer hybrids are they F3, F4 or F5. Just wondering probability of similar of progeny to parent. Are Multi-petal varieties more unstable ?

Regarding the seeds we supply, there are 50% seeds are from grafted plants, and the rest 50% seeds are from excellent protophyte plants. We will choose many excellent offspring of protophyte plants. We have many kinds of excellent variety that is specifically used as pollens. When it comes to selfing, it is a common way of producing seeds in most gardens which only produce grafted varieties. We do not use selfing to produce seeds. We use back crossing when we need to stabilize flower's main trait (e.g. color...etc). Often new breeds are developed using hybridization method.

About Seeds: We use artificial pollination, so it has a low possibility (20%-30%) to grow into pink adenium. Most of them have characteristics of their parents. The Single-petal with red, white and white with red border are more stable. Although the seed is not guaranteed to look exactly like their parents, some will look exactly like their parents, while others may have only certain characteristics in common with their parents. This is the reason that new varieties are created. It also needs time and luck to produce the new varieties which are better than their parents.

Here is the percentage of all flower colours for your reference
2022 The Successful Artificial Pollination....
1.Pink: It reaches 85% for pink seeds to bear pink flowers.
2.White: It reaches 95% for white seeds to bear white flowers.
3.Red: It reaches 95% for red flowers seeds to bear red flowers.
4.Stripe Lined: It reaches 70% for stripe-lined seeds to bear striped-lined flowers.
5.Dark Purple: It reaches 10% for dark purple seeds to bear dark purple flowers.
6.Light Purple: It reaches 30% for light purple seeds to bear light purple flowers.
7.Peach: It reaches 70% for peach seeds to bear peach flowers
8.Red Lining Adenium with Five Petals: It reaches 20% for red lining Adenium with five petals flowers seeds to bear red lining adenium with five petals flowers.
9.Yellow: It reaches 20% for yellow seeds to bear yellow flowers

10.White petal with red curving: It reaches 95% for white petal with red curving seeds to bear white petal with red curving.
11.White Arabicum: It's very a rare variety. According to our experiences, the offsprings of Arabicum only have about thousandth of percentage could grow into the purely white Arabicum. Most of it might be grow into pink color or some of them they might grow into white with red edge or red. Weve tried many ways to improve this issue and hope itll successful blooming the pure white flower sooner.
12. Variegated Leaves White: Basically, variegated leaves is mutant varieties. So far we still cannot make sure how many percentage chance that it will grow into exactly like Variegated Leaves. We've been working on developed the better offspring of Variegated Leaves for a long time, but it still needs luck to make it grow exactly like its mother plant. So before you order the Variegated Leaves please make sure that you have read this information.

13. New Double and triple layer Adenium: It reaches 25~50% for Double and triple layer seeds to bear Double and triple layer flowers.

That's why some customers said the result is like playing the lottery, it still needs luck to make it look similar to its mother plant or more excellent than the mother plant.

Q25. How do you pack the seeds for shipping?
The seeds are packed in a zipper bag with name tags and quantity of the seeds inside and we place them inside a bubble padded envelope (like a jiffy bag, please refer to the PICTURE) enclosed with the quarantine certificate and invoice.

Back to Top

Q26. Would harsh weather conditions affect the seeds during transit?
The seeds we supply are dry and in complete dormancy because the seeds need to be exported. And the seeds are packed in a zipper bag, we place them inside a bubble padded envelope. So the seeds are still in dormancy regardless of how severe weather is outside. That is why we always ask our customers to soak the seeds for 2-4 hours before sowing, so that the seeds could wake up from dormancy after 2-4 hour's soaking.

Back to Top

Q27. Could you please tell me the difference between Adenium seeds KO and Adenium x Pollination seeds?
The pollination seeds indicate its father, and we could determine if the offspring will be better, what their flower color will be & whether they will have multi-petals or not.

When it comes to KO_ebay + number seeds or other varieties, because the father's name is not provided,the seeds are named from the mother plants directly, for example, if we harvest seeds from KO_ebay01, the seeds are named KO_ebay01. We don't provide the name of father.

Adenium x Pollination seeds state the father's name (pollen). Therefore, it is more accurate and for future generations you can look forward to obtaining new varieties.

In Taiwan, we completely use hand pollination to produce seeds, so the quality of seeds we supply is high and we receive recognition from our buyers. There is no stable probability without hand pollination, and it is impossible to determine if the offspring will be better, what the flower color will be or whether it will be multi petals.

Q28. The seed coat is sticking to the seedling. Should I remove it?
We suggest not to peel off the seed coat, because this situation might damage the seed embryo or the cotyledon leaves easily, this may reduce the moisture and nutrient during incubation period. While most will come off easily when moistened with water, some do not. They have a membrane that holds on for dear life and simply will not budge. Forcing them will literally tear their tiny heads off.

Back to Top

Q29. When should I remove the cling film?
During sowing, unless the seed bed requires watering, we won't remove the cling film or open the lid till all seedlings reach 70% sprouting. If you often disturb the seedlings, this situation will affect the germination result. You could remove it as soon as the tops of the seeds start poking into the cling film. Water vapor is produced in these nursery pots covered on the cling film, and water vapor could block the sunlight, that's why we suggest you put your seeds in direct sunlight, it could help your seeds grow quickly.

Back to Top

Q30. Why do you not sell Swazicum, Nova Tanzania seeds?
For Swazicum:
We don't produce this variety because its leaves are slender and the back of leaves are hairy, which makes them get sick easily and drop the leaves.

For Nova Tanzania:
The leaves of Nova Tanzania get sick easily, its caudex has no ornamental value and its flower colour is also monotonous.

Q31. We suggest that you could try this tissue paper sowing and covered with plastic wrap?
Our seeds are dry and in complete dormancy to prevent from wetness in transit in case they are ruined by mildew.
When the customers receive the seeds, we suggest them must soak seeds in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing in order to increase the germination rate.

If you would like to sow in small amount, we suggest that you could try this tissue paper sowing and covered with plastic wrap,
this sowing way is more stable and easy to observe the situation of germination, please refer to the below link for details, and till the seedlings appear 3-4 leaves, you could move the seedlings in the soil, but due to after finishing sowing, the place everyone puts the seeds is different, you still need to observe by yourself and judge if you need to add water again.

Usually, during sowing, except the seed bed lacks water seriously, we won't remove the plastic or open the lid till all seedlings reach 70% sprouting, if you often disturb the seedlings, this situation will influence the germination result, because in these nursery pots covered on the plastic wrap, it will produce water vapor, and water vapor could block the sunlight, that's why we suggest you could let your seeds under sunlight directly, it could let your seeds grow quickly. If you are using a seedling heating mat, if possible, use a lamp for the lighting. The light of this ordinary tube looks like sunlight of day time.

Q32. I have received seeds recently and I'm planning to sow the seeds now, could you please provide me any sowing experiences to me or let me know how to grow the seedlings into healthy plants after sowing? Thank you in advance?
Our seeds are dry and in complete dormancy to prevent from wetness in transit in case they are ruined by mildew.
When the customers receive the seeds, we suggest them must soak seeds in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing in order to increase the germination rate.
After sowing, keep the soil wet for 10 days until the sprouts appear.
Please take care of the temperature, which will affect the germination rate directly. The suitable temperature is between 22-35 Celsius degree
Before you prepare sowing, you may notice the forecast of the weather within sowing, if the following 7days will be rainy and cloudy, it will affect the germination rate.
So please make sure that it would be better that the weather should be sunny continuously within sowing.

If you have any questions during planting Adeniums, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

Happy Sowing.

Please refer to our below explanation of how to use fertilizer is based on temperature condition between 22-35 Celsius degree.
Under this temperature condition, we divide plants growth stage into four to explain.

The first stage (sowing to one month old seedlings), pictures 2
we do not suggest to use any fertilizer in the media at this period.
because the plants will grow fast at this stage.
During this period, we will use liquid fertilizer and spray once or twice a week.
Please use high N and low P and K liquid fertilizer, such as N20-P15-K15 and plant in the 1 inch pot tray.

The second stage (one month to two months old seedlings),
we will still suggest to use liquid fertilizer at this period.
But the N:P:K ratios in fertilizer should be changed to the same level,
such as N20-P20-K20 and spray once or twice a week.

The third stage (after two months old seedlings),
we prepare to transplant seedlings to a bigger pot(3 inch pot).
When transplanting the seedlings,
we will add slow release chemical fertilizer which can maintain for one year into media and stir with media.
Because the plants will grow much faster at this period and the plants need more fertilizer to grow strong.
We will use slow release chemical fertilizer which N:P:K ratios is same, for example N20-P20-K20.

Also, we will spray liquid fertilizer N:P:K ratios in same level to plant leaves
such as N20-P20-K20 once or twice a week,
in order to supplement insufficient part during this fast growing period.
The leaves surface will absorb liquid fertilizer easily.

The forth stage (after four months old seedlings),
during this period, the plants are going to bloom, if the temperature keep between 22-35 Celsius degree.
We will chang liquid fertilizer N:P:K ratios.
We will use liquid fertilizer which have high P,K and low N or even stopping N,
such as N8:P15:K15. And still spray once or twice a week.

If your plants have already grown the (after Six months old seedlings), such as N 0~10:P 15~30:K 15~30.
and you want to see you plants have flowers often.
please use liquid fertilizer which have more P and K and spray once or twice a week to your plants' leaves.
The leaves surface will absorb liquid fertilizer easily.
Please avoid to spray liquid fertilizer under strong sunlight.
The best time is to spray in the morning or in afternoon after sunset.
This will help your plants to bloom quickly.

If the temperature below 20 Celsius degree, please stop to use the fertilizer.
Because the plant will be dormancy in the cold weather.
When the weather become warm, you can fertilize your plants again.

Q38. Regarding your question of how to store the seeds?
We suggest that you could store the seeds in a jar with a lid, better with a desiccant, and you put the jar in a dry and dark place.
Please note that the stored temperature couldn't be too high(better not over 28 degrees) and do not put seeds in the refrigerator, either.
the preserved time could reach about 3-6 months according to different storage ways, but we suggest that it's better to finish sowing within 3-6 months and the seeds still have good germination rate after passing store time.
