Germinating Sotol Seed

Bill_Bolivia(7b-8a/GA)November 7, 2006

Suroesteños:

Can anyone offer information on germinating fresh Dasylirion spp. seed? Specifically, does it require special treatment (e.g., stratification)?

In mid-October, I collected this seed from in-city ornamental plantings in Albuquerque. Information as to the species most commonly used by landscapers would be extremely helpful too.

Thanks.
