Since Yuccas are xeric plants, i figured perhaps 
several have had experience wth them.  A few weeks ago, we encountered 
plants of Yucca filamentosa (Beargrass) in a "High pine" ecosystem in Florida 
and I was given a seed pod by our guide.  The question I have is how to 
germinate these seeds?  They look like most amaryllid seed, except 
drier.  I placed some on sand, since that they grow on well-drained sandy 
soils but I also floated some, which developed mold and did not germinate
