Erythrina zehyeri -germination?
Sat, 08 Apr 2006 16:36:06 PDT
Has anyone on the list successfully germinated Erythrina zehyeri (a
caudiciform plant, not a bulb, I admit)?  The only directions I can find
suggest immersing the seeds in boiling water and then soaking them
overnight.  I'm always a little worried about what boiling water might do
to the embryo - assume the idea is not to use such a large volume of
boiling water that the solution can't cool quickly.  Anyway, if anyone has
experince with this species, I'd be grateful for more information.

Hi  all,

Boophone disticha  can be  found in the winter rainfall   and  summer 
rainfall areas  of   RSA  as well as tropical  East Africa so the 
origin of  a bulb is  important in determining  when   to  water.
