I had tried finding the seeds for Lippiagraveolens in the past, but have not been able to find them - only plants - despite seeing photos of flowering plants. Even Richter's and ebay didn't have them. However, I got a new batch of Mexican oregano recently, so I got one of my trusty eye loupes, and went through a tsp or so of the herb, and found a number of tiny blossoms, many opened, and I just broke them apart, looking for anything appearing to be a seed. I got two of them, and put them on a pad, soaked with the GA-3, and in just 24 hours it had sprouted - probably even less, given the size of it. I'll put it in a Jiffy pellet, to start out, and see how it goes. Sprouted Mexican oregano seed. by pepperhead212, on Flickr

tom That was one of many that only had the plants, not seeds. I should have ordered one two springs ago, when I ordered those plants from Richter's, when replacing the rosemary. You have to order 6 or more from many places, when getting plants, and many have higher shipping costs than Richter's, and they are in Canada!
That Mexican oregano seed was smaller than regular oregano or marjoram, and those are are tiny! SOW, I have a marjoram I started from seed, growing in the hydroponics, and a tiny Cleopatra oregano seedling, that I also started with the GA-3, and is in a Jiffy pellet right now.

Like I said, that thing was even smaller than the regular oregano. Wasn't sure it was going to make it, but it's taking off now! And here's the Cleopatra oregano: Cleopatra oregano 11-13 by pepperhead212, on Flickr
