I got some seeds a couple of years ago, but none germinated.
I haven't had the opportunity to pick any of these up since...
I think you need a bigger green house!

Careful what temps you keep paeoniifolius at while it's dormant. Some people down south (cold for us, but no snow) have lost tubers I gave them during dormancy. Not from wet but from too cold. They're from an equatorial savanna climate, a hot wet season and a hot very dry season.
