Try this link, I got mine there and the seeds were fresh, however realize that they are finiky seeds.

Here is a link that might be useful: BOP seeds

RE: i really want birds of paradise seed!

Out of ~ 50, I got three white BOP to germinate and grow. And this was in near-perfect sub-tropical conditions. I got the seeds on ebay. They were supposed to be just picked fresh but I'm not so sure about that with the extemely low germination! You can get them down here almost everywhere but I really like looking at a plant and knowing I started it from seed!

RE: i really want birds of paradise seed!

why do you want seeds?
they are difficult to germinate and take at least 10 years to bloom out of the subtropics?
get a plant!,its easier!

RE: i really want birds of paradise seed!

I have several large White bird of Paradise plants in my yard. I will pick seeds for you if you like or send you a starter. Late summer I will have some orange ones too.
