Hi, I see wonderful new flowers coming in one of the threads and thought I would share our last year’s experience from bud to seedlings, germinated from 5 mother plants we have had around 10 years - and for the first time last year, we had decent pollination - I can always send high resolution pictures if anyone is interested. The seedlings are easy to germinate on a window sill (south side in Southern hemisphere), prefer to sit directly on the sand for sprouting. We note we let them dry out in their heads before harvesting the seed. I note for some fun, that in South Africa, one of the common translated names is “horse scare” (referring to the rolling dried seed heads) as the wind pushes them along.

Kind regards
Markus Schorn
