did anyone grow luffas and have some extra seed? I planted all I had and not one came up so I have no seed for next year. For some reason none of the plant supply places in my area ever carry the seed. I would be glad to pay postage for a few seeds.

I might have some. Mine are still making fruit, although that might end fairly soon if the weather keeps cooling down.

Once the season's over and I deduct the Christmas loofahs and the ones I'll need for my own use, I'll know where I stand. Post back in a couple of weeks, in case I forget, and I should be able to tell you. :)

Take a knife a cut a thin strip off along one side of the seeds, or soak them in water for a day before planting. I have the best luck with the first method. Just cut off the outside, so the the inner part of the seed is exposed. They have a hard shell that needs to be compromised for the seed to sprout.
