    Hey guys,

    I’ll be traveling to California soon and want to take the opportunity to gather seeds of both Washingtonia Robusta and Filifera, I’m after PURESTRAIN seeds only. I know it’s difficult to get pure seeds of either species due to their coexistence causing hybridisation but I am willing to ‘go hunting’ for them. I have read that you can do tours in the California desert to collect pure seeds of Filifera, and I’m also thinking of quickly going to Mexico to get pure Robusta seeds.

    Does anyone know locations I can visit where either species are so far apart (including hybrids) that hybridisation is virtually impossible and I can get pure seeds? Willing to travel far for them.

    Cheers guys
