Hi All,


Earlier I sent in seed of Alophia drummondii to the BX. I wanted to make sure those of you who got some need to be patient. Germination the first fall is rather abysmal. Though a few could germinate. Don't give up on them. I leave my seed outdoors year round. The second fall you will see them germinate very well.


Once sprouted I keep watering mine until they decide to go dormant, which is much later than those in the wild due to the extra moisture. The young bulbs can reward you with later than normal blooms their first summer. Since we get some summer rains they do tolerate some moisture while dormant. 


Take care and Happy New Year!
