    I sowed the seed of the latest one to flower in January last year. It flowered the first time in October. 9 months from seed to flower! It flowered again 5 months later after 2 months dormancy. Dream for the future: Maybe with more breeding we can eliminate dormancy and make the plant faster growing.

    it is a temperate then for me , its need to go through a period of dormancy with a hibernacle.

    Right. When hibernaclae are fully formed I bag mine and put them in the fridge for 2 months minimum. At least I don’t need to water them for that period.

    I should also mention: P. macroceras and P. vulgaris do hybridize and the hybrid is perfectly fertile. I made this hybrid years ago. The first generation hybrids grew vigorously. However, following generations grew increasingly weak. I don’t know if this weakness was a result of inbreeding depression or the hybridization.

    Bonjour

    here I always leave them outside all the year , during this period they are always damp (by capillarity)
    their hibernacula is formed in August the rosette develops in March,here it is the first temperate that is growing

    have you a picture to this hybrid ?
    do you know if the 2 species are present on the same area 'in situ' , may be just in alaska where both species are present?

    Sorry, I have no pictures of the hybrid I made. I wonder if anyone else has done it.
