An unintended, but welcome surprise.
Lilium speciosum var. gloriosoides scale bulblet.
Such a special species, but will it ever survive...
(The penny is just 1.9cm in diameter.)

It is most certainly worth a try, for such a lovely species.

It is still in the fridge. I'll bring it out with my next round of stuff out of the fridge, May 1.

Ticker, you might also be interested to know that I have nine new species of Fritillaria seed that sprout this year, too.

Oh no, just new to me. I already have few that I started in previous years. Some might even bloom next season. These are the ones, with a few others that germinated along with them. All germinated at 40F. Sow dates accompany, and it's clear that keeping pots for more than just one season pays off.


Fritillaria biflora - 2 Oct 2009
Fritillaria bucharica - 5 Oct 2010
Fritillaria carica - 2 Oct 2009, several. one seed germinated in 2010
Fritillaria collina - 5 Oct 2010
Fritillaria crassifolia ssp. kurdica - 2 Oct 2009, several. two germinated in 2010
Fritillaria pallidiflora - 5 Oct 2010
Fritillaria pyrenaica - 2 Oct 2009
Fritillaria sewerzowii - 5 Oct 2010
Fritillaria whittalii - 2 Oct 2009
Lewisia cotyledon - 2 Oct 2009
Penstemon whippleanus - 25 March 2010
Tulipa urmiensis - 1 March 2010
