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 yet.
