Hello All,

I received Tigridia sp from BX 162:

> 25. Tigridia sp. A short-growing species collected near Bejucos
> in Mexico State. Found growing in the shade of Crescentia alata
> trees in a very hot environment with an extremely pronounced
> dry period. Grows in clay soils that flood during the rainy
> season but bake in the dry season.

I have seen environments like this in Mexico. I planted my seed July 20 in
heavy soil and have watered frequently, so it stays quite wet. Nothing
yet. Any other suggestions? The Milla magnifica I planted at the same time
(in sandy soil) are up. By the way, Uli, if I get flowers on M. m. I
intend to provide seed to the BX.
