Grow Notes
Grow in part or filtered shade in moist, humus rich, well drained soils.

Provide Protection from Slugs, Snails, and Aphids.

Sow
Plant in pots and keep indoors at any time of year. Sow the seeds on the surface of good quality potting mix and cover with 6mm of sieved mix or coarse sand.

Keep moist, but never wet for 2-3 weeks at temperatures between 13-18°C in a well-lit spot.

After 2-3 weeks of being warm, next wrap the moist, sown punnet in cling-wrap and place it into the fridge for a 4-6 weeks chilling period to persuades the seeds that winter has occurred.

Remove from fridge and remove cling-wrap. Ensure the punnet is moist and place back into its previous position at 13-18°C.

Germination
Seedlings will emerge at different times and over a period as part of the natural staggered germination tactic which occurs with this plant. So have patience and don’t throw out your seeds.

Maturity
This plant is something of a late bloomer, don’t expect blooms until the fourth to seventh year. The blooms drain all the energy from the bulb, so the main plant will die, leaving behind ornamental pods of fruit. However numerous offsets develop from the parent bulb which you can replant.
