Germination was noted in seed sown 011504. The fresh seed was sown on sopping wet Supersphagnum in a small cocktail sauce cup with a transparent lid, and kept at ambient room temps. Germination so far has been sparse, but I am hoping to see more seed sprout.
Similar success has been achieved with U. caerulea sowed 011504 with identical methods.
I attribute both these successes to the fresh quality of the seed.
Although U. caerulea is an annual species, U. beaugleholei is perrenial and it will be a special focus to reproduce it by lolon divisions to introduce it into widespread culture here in the U.S.A. I believe this is a real First introduction, and I am very honored to have this chance to establish this species here!
Now the worries begin, but hey: I grow D. uniflora. I am used to worrying, LOL
