Crinum asiaticum var procerum germination

Hello,

 

I have one of these in my front yard and a bulb has formed off of one of the flowers. I'd like to try to sprout this thing but I'm not sure how. Any advice would be appreciated, I know we have some rather proficient gardeners here. I never see these in California so I'm glad to have one that is so happy (and cold hardy). I know these seeds want a swampy situation to sprout, so I thought I would just put this thing in my pond shoreline once I have a good strategy developed... unless some have different advice. Thanks for the hints!

 

You can kind of see it growing there in the center, along the sidewalk...

Solid zone 9, I can expect at least one night in the mid to low twenties every year.

Hot, dry summers. Cold, wet winters.

Whenever i came across plants w/ seed or bulblets on them, i'd stick a few in pots under the stairwell at my apartment and they'd continue to germinate / grow w/ out issue.  That was in FL though.  Germinating them will be a different experience there in Nor. Cal. though.  I've heard germination speeds can vary, even w/ seed from the same pod / plant..

Here's two comments from 2006 posted on the Pacific Bulb Society's page regarding germinating them that might help:  There may be other, more recent comments on the subject posted over there you might look for also.
