    I was just given a small handful of C. Hildae 'seeds.' I'm certain they're C. Hildae, but use the term 'seeds' loosely, as I couldn't find any info on what they should look like when ripe. These were off-white, looking very much like Zamia Furfuracea seeds after peeling, and just about the same size, as well. These came straight from the cone, and popped off with a slight 'crunch' in some cases. They didn't have to be peeled, so I'm wondering if they'll even be good or not. I put them straight into a community tray with soil, watered them, and am now waiting.

    Couldn't find any info on germination length, rate, conditions... I fully suspect that it will all be for naught, sadly, but I had to at least give it a shot. Any info will be appreciated.

    Thanks much!
