If its of any use to any-one.
I tried to germinate the cream Velthemia some years ago and it was a total failure.
In 2002 I harvested the seed but forgot to sow it last year, so I wasn't expecting any luck this time.
On both occasions I have put them in a layer of fine pumice sand on top of my usual bulb mix.This time I sowed them late summer Feb 26th I think and they germinated like grass on Mar 18th. During this time I have had minimums of 13-17C and maximums of 19-29C.
