    On March 2, 2007 I planted two potfulls of seeds from my S. mooreii "Big Red". I am not sure if they are selfings or a natural hybrid with something else in my collection.

    The seeds were harvested in late October, stored dry in the fridge till mid-January, stratified in a damp paper towel in the fridge for 6 weeks, and sown on 3-2-2007. Yesterday 3-18-2007 I got the first sprout

    There are actually 2 sprouts out of the 20 seeds I have planted, but judging from the seed coat on the unsprouted seeds, I expect that I should have a very good germination rate on these seeds.



    Cheers

    I tried to stratify cobra lily seeds on a damp paper towel and the towel turned pink, blue, green, and black.
