Dennis Kramb asked about how I grow Gelasine elongata and Calydorea


Both were kept outside during the winter in a well protected cold frame. 


The Gelasine kept green leaves throughout the winter and is not producing
(slowly, it seems) new growth.  The Calydorea xiphioides remained dormant
until about two weeks ago, but now it seems to be growing vigorously. The
Calydorea is new: it was obtained from Jane McGary last summer. 


My source for the Gelasine grows it outside year round here in the greater
Washington, D.C. area, but he is in a much warmer area than here.
