Thank you, Alberto and Mary Sue. I couldn't read my poor writing on the label, Alberto and now I can correct it. Mary Sue, this is pure beginner's luck with the Calochortus. The only geophyte seed I've successfully grown before joining PBS this November were Liliums. I think it's just because the winter has been mild and I did sow both Calochortus much earlier in the year, possibly October or November for my own seed, very early December for BX seed. As for the Veltheimia, only two have sprouted, but it's early days yet. I am very happy to be reminded of the TOW page. Now that you've brought it up, I remember you mentioning it before. I refer to the archives periodically and find them a great resource.
