Growing Daubenya from seed

I and others here in metro Phoenix plant them in late fall/early winter.
We have dry air, lots of sunshine, daytime temperatures always above
freezing, and occasional nights below freezing, down to -8C. The frost has
never affected Daubenya here.

I keep all my bulb seed but Gladiolus extremely wet - containers standing
in water - until they sprout. I don't have access to my records right now
but I seem to recall that was in about 4-6 weeks. I then kept them always
moist but not standing in water. They grow steadily. We bulb nuts here
consider them easy to grow. But them we have a desert winter climate and
don't need to grow in a greenhouse.
