Steve, back in the early 1990s a reintroduction program was started with six people from the U. S. and one from France donating seeds. The plants were raised here and the corms sent to Chile to reintroduce in the wild. As with so many other attempts it was a failure as the young seedlings were unable to survive in the wild. A number of other attempts would have probably been successful once the knack was found but there were too many plants to look after here over there. The generosity of those people was fantastic: note that back there T. cyanocrocus was a real rarity and seed was priced and scarce.
