Photos by David Pilling show the tubers on a 10 mm grid, developing seeds and ripe seeds. The seeds in photos 2 and 3, taken at the end of June 2013, were kept moist and at outside temperature and germinated in February 2014 as shown in photo 4 (10 mm grid); photo 5 shows the resulting seedlings a couple of months later.
