Linnaeus gives a quick answer to Nicolaus Joseph von Jacquin’sJacquin, Nicolaus Joseph, baron von
Linnaeus reports that he had sown the Loasa seeds in a pot and put them in his window. He had tendered them carefully, but to his regret, he had not made any of them germinate. He gives up and wonders if Jacquin’s specimens have survived, so that he can get newly collected seeds once again in the future.
The Dalechampia, Peltaria and Magnolia grow, and the Peltaria seems to withstand the winter in Uppsala without problems.

From seeds received from Jacquin, Linnaeus has got specimens of two Robinia species and of Dryas pentapetala and several Siberian plants.
