Another Lycoris question
Fri, 14 Aug 2009 22:25:40 PDT
Somewhere in the Lycoris literature, someone mentioned that cutting the L. 
squam. bloom stalks and hanging them up (rarely) induced seed formation. 
How long after the flower petals fade away is this done?

Yes, I do understand that L. squam. is a sterile triploid (I've had college 
level Genetics), BUT I'm curious to see what happens--if anything.
And if seed is by some miracle produced, what then? Grow them in agar via 
sterile tissue culture?
