Dear fellow members has anybody got any suggestions on how to grow Ixia virdiflora from seed?,Ihave got the sowing instructions on the seed packet but Iam just wondering if anyone has grown this flower before?.



Ixia virdiflora seeds are easy to grow plant them in seed trays under gentle heat I used potting compost and perlite as a growing medium and they did well.They will form a corm/bulb the first year and die back and go dormant then the second year they will flower and then produce bulblets that can be removed when the plant has died back and these should flower first year.The corms are short lived usually around 3/4 years.My icon/avatar is a picture of mine and also I have some pictures of mine on goy.
