You can likely find seeds or seed pods from local nurseries, or online. We don't recommend specific places to purchase.

When growing these from seed, it can take several years to see the first flower. They are very slow growing, and that speed will be controlled by how closely you can mimic their native habitat. Generally, it is accepted that the first flowers will show up after the first two leaves have developed and matured to full size.
