I've just ordered some seed from Australia of this beautiful flower. I will 
give the seed to the Botanical garden in Copenhagen. Any advice how to 
germinate Blandifordia grandiflora + punicea.

Does anyone grow Blandfordia? I have several plants that are 10+ years
old, a couple of which are in bloom now. The stems do not develop, and
the flowers seem to nestle down in the foliage, which I think is
abnormal. They do this every year. I am growing them in a cool
greenhouse, no heat.
