Hi everyone,

Some of you may know that I am a big fan of the Oxalidaceae, and
Hipseocharis is a tuberous geophyte within that family. We bought some
seeds from the Archibalds in 2008 and the plant started blooming this week.
The seeds came from Argentina.

I am in love with this plant!

I had three seedlings, one died quickly, two made decent sized tubers, but
one died last year before blooming. So finally, I only have one clone and
slim possibility of seeds. Is anyone out there growing this species? If you
are, please let me know and perhaps we can trade some pollen and the
resulting seeds. I would really love to get this species grown more broadly.

Happy growing,
Berkeley, CA
