Hi Mary Sue:

Harvested a few seed in June, several have germinated. I can tag the pot of mature corms (Silverhill/2003), and should they produce, send you seed

H. luticola gets chlorotic about this time of year so I switch to a liquid feed suitable for acid growing plants and dose with chelated iron.  I also use a liquid seaweed feed every month and a half, or so.

Thanks for the Hesperantha pages.
