Hi, I'm a new member and feel a bit bashful asking my first question because you all sound so advanced but here goes. I just received some seeds (from a seed exchange) of something called 'homoglad' which is a sort of cross between Gladiolus tristis and Homoglossum watsonium (if that helps). It is a spring bulb. Now, I've never started a bulb from seed. Is this incredibly, impossibly difficult? I'm starting them under grow-lights, covering the seed lightly using a good seed-starting mix, keeping them moist, etc. I just don't know what to expect-incredibly slow germination? Will it likely take several years to bloom?
Thanks, and I am impressed with all of your posts. You are a frighteningly hard-core group!
