Cyrtanthus from seed
I got some seeds from SilverHill Seeds ( http://www.silverhillseeds.co.za/) for 3 species of Cyrtanthus. I am germinating them by the floatation method, but I'm beginning to wonder about their chances of success.
The seeds are put into bowls and allowed to float on the surface of the water until a root emerges ( http://www.angelfire.com/ri/ixia/float.html ). I've had some seeds (C. brachyscyphus) floating for about 3 weeks and they are not showing any activity.
A few have gotten a cottony fungus and I've removed them to another container, but have little hope they will survive. I think the remaining seeds might be viable but wonder when or if they will germinate. They are at room termperature (68 F to 75 F) and floating in about 3/4 inch of water.
Any advice would be appreciated.
