massonia, daubenya seed germinating

  All my Daubenya have died, so far.
All mine did too until I started to grow them in an 80-90% mineral mix and
turned an air circulating fan in their direction, botrytis or something
similar is a major peril.  Daubenya and Massonia germinate over at least a
two year period.
