Cypella seed

Dear All,

I was looking through my archives before I sowed the Cypella seed I 
recently acquired from the BX because I remembered Eric Walton from New 
Zealand had written about how to grow it. I found a note I had written to 
the IBS list:

"He also said that seed should be sown as soon as ripe in a very freely
draining, gritty potting mix. Old seed may take several years to germinate.
He has found that chitting the seed at the rounded end speeds up the
germination process."

I wanted to pass this on for others who might have gotten the seed and 
hadn't yet planted it.
