Ixia Viridiflora & Lachenalia viridiflora?

Hey every1! Tis' me again ;p

So I have ordered these seeds online and decided to see if anyone here has any tips or advice for me on them. I've done quite a bit of research online but was just wondering if anyone on the forum had any personal experience with either of them. Thanx! :D

I grew Ixia one year from corms/bulbs. But I lost track of them and left them in the ground. They need to be dug up when they go dormant for the summer (like ranunculus) otherwise they'll rot. I have had better luck naturalizing freesia.

Wow! Wasn't someone looking for blue green/aqua colored flowers for a wedding a while ago?

Must not have seen the turqoise wedding post = / otherwise I would have suggested these to them but they are super rare and I dunno if they would be able to gather enough for a wedding :| Thanks for the tip to dig them up every summer during dormancy. I'm gunna do my best to keep them going as long as I possibly can.. they are so beautiful. But I can see how you could lose track of them... wonder if there is some way not to lose track of them other then labeling sticks.

Why are all the RARE things SO beautiful!!! :?: Those are just so incredibly pretty! Hope you have success with them! Where did you order them from? Probably couldn't get them in canada though! :(

I got the Lachenalia viridiflora from ebay and got Ixia viridiflora from..Owl's Acre Seeds. I planted all the seeds about a week ago.. so far no green yet. I'll be sure to post and let everyone know once I do see some green :D I will be so lucky if they grow. They are absolutely gorgeous :D
