I have had 100% germination with Scilla madeirensis seeds. On February 11, 2017 I planted seeds I ordered online from Portugal. I put 10 seeds in peat moss in each 8” wide 5” deep clay pot. They have been there a year and will stay there another year. They are still babies. Germination takes a few weeks. They looked like amaryllis seedlings for a while and are now 8” tall with one wide leaf each. I kept the soil moist the first year, with saucers under the pots, but I have let them dry out somewhat this summer so they can rest and restart growth in the winter. Whether I can get them to adulthood remains to be seen.
