Forsale Mangrove Seeds - Order Updates

EDIT: THIS IS NOW A CLOSED GROUP BUY THREAD.

EDIT: SEEDS ARE IN, SEE BOTTOM OF THIS POST.

An order for 150 seeds has been placed for those below, coming from Hawaii.
Seeds are 7-11". $2 Per seed. Plus any customs fees, though I can't see it being much - may be able to absorb the cost IF that happens.

The list is closed. I have contacted the seller, am waiting on a reply.

JamesHurst (me) - 30
Bayinaung - 15
Fesso_clown - 10
teemee - 20
rickcasa - 20
jxu225 - 10
sully6956 - 10
phomaniac - 10
borap - 20


Estimated delivery: Between Friday, Jul. 19 and Thursday, Jul. 25
Origin: Honolulu, Hawaii

When I get them, you will have the option of coming to my place in the beaches (near woodbine and queen) OR you can meet me downtown, Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. Other arrangements can be made via PM if absolutely necessary. I know some of you have mentioned picking them up for other people - that's fine too.

EDIT: GUESS WHAAAAAT?!?!?!?!?!!?

The mangrove pods have arrived.
I am about to count and seperate them.

Everyone PM me with your contact info.

I live in the beaches so unfortunately, no one will be able to get to me this week at home because Queen Street East is closed for Jazz Fest.

I will be out of town until Sunday evening, starting Friday.

Let me know when you want to meet up and provide me with your name and contact info in a PM please.

Thanks everyone for being so patient! Now to check for Hawaiian spiders hiding in these bunches..... jk

PM ME NOWWWWW

Cam, amazingly it's proabably better if you just order them from Ebay.

Yeah I may grab 21 seeds from a Hawaiian supplier.
The issue is you can't ship the plants into Canada, just the seeds.

If you want to split the shipping, let me know.
I'd be keen to order some, too!

Totally teemee!

Definitely if anyone wants to get in on an order, it works out to about $2.50 per seed where I'll be getting them, after shipping. If I get more than 21 it may be cheaper. I will be wanting about 10 for myself, if I order seeds.

Alright, I just spoke with them and got some answers about costs to ship these.

The seeds themselves are 7-11" (pods).
It is Red Mangrove from Hawaii.

Here's how the cost will break down based on the total number of seeds I order tonight.

50 seeds - around $2.00 each
200 seeds - around $1.75 each
400 seeds - around $1.25 each

Plus any customs fees.


When I get them, you will have the option of coming to my place in the beaches (near woodbine and queen) OR you can meet me downtown, Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.
Other arrangements can be made via PM if absolutely necessary. I know some of you have mentioned picking them up for other people - that's fine too.

I will be placing an order today so anyone else should let me know ASAP as they're jacking the prices up as I speak.
So far, I will be getting at least 50 seeds ($2.00 each)
