Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from NARGS '11/'12 exchange, cold-stored. Baggy 35F (32%G, 13-18w)
  2. Same seed as above, cold-stored. Baggy 35F (13w; 7%G, 5-11w) - 70F (no further G)

As usual with fritillarias, the problem isn't so much germination (which usually occurs at cold conditions), as it is growing on; leaves deteriorate before it is time to plant them out in late spring. I should really start growing species like this one on in a heavier, grittier soil mix in outdoor pots.
