Greetings to  all from yet another on the other side of the  Pacific.

I have raised this problem before on another forum without getting any  

I have no trouble raising Fritillaria pudica from seed - the problem is 
making them  grow to flowering size. The leaves seem to  grow at a very  
slow rate and  so far, for me, never attain flowering size. I am  
growing in pots. Does anyone have any advise ?

Flowering here mid winter are hoop petticoats, crocus , colchicum, 
cyclamen  and reticulata  iris.
