Bruce asked,I have received some seeds of Leucocoryne vittata - are 
there any tricks to germinating seeds of this genus and is now (Autumn 
in southern hemisphere) the right time to try?

In my experience Leucocoryne seeds of various species germinate readily 
within two months after fall planting, planted in a gritty soil mix in 
pots and given cool but frost-free conditions after beginning 
application of moisture. No special treatment seems necessary.
