No, I curse, that I can't find the seeds. Would you mind sharing some? I would gladly pay for shipping. I found out about it, when I was searching, how to prevent guinea pig bladder stones, that they seem to be prone to. I feed my just hay and greens (no pellets), so they will probably be less prone, but still would be great to feed them some chanca piedra to be sure. And it turns out, it is a great herb for people too!

Send me a PM with your address and I can send you some for your pigs. By the time the envelope gets to you, the seed pods will have burst open and you will have lots of seed in the bottom of the envelope.
