    Haha well it generally needs about a 2-3 week period to sit in dry storage, have you ever tried that?

    I sprinkled some over one of my minibogs a few weeks ago - I'll let you guys know if anything pops up out of it. It doesn't look promising yet though. I only ever have luck with seeds if I sprinkle them in a pot of something growing in the same cultural requirements already (somehow I over or under water if not).

    The seeds prefer warm to hot conditions to germinate. Usually, I sow them in a covered container and leave them under bright shade. Not all but the first few will germinate within a week.

    B. liniflora does best during the hot and dry season here so I sow my seeds in March and by June-July, they start flowering and produce a lot of seeds. Each year, I collect the seeds to sow the following year i.e seeds are usually a year old. The best germination rates I've got is prior soaking with 1% bleach.
