    Hi.

    Are the seeds of the Tricyrtis hirta light-germinators (seeds require light and surface position), or if not, how deep to put them under the soil? Do they require a "cold winter" simulation to germinate? If so, which temperature, for how long, and whe to take out from the fridge?

    Hi, one that I've never tried before but I believe to be tricky, have a look at this, it may be what you need to know :thumb: ;

    Tricyrtis hirta at B & T World Seeds

    Also found this;

    "Tricyrtis hirta, latifolia, and maculata, Sow at 18-22ºC (64-71ºF) for 2-4 wks, move to -4 to +4ºC (24-39ºF) for 4-6 wks, move to 5-12ºC (41-53ºF) for germination"

    I'm growing T.latifolia. The only germinators that I got were the surface sown seeds, following pretty much the same temperature regime as in Bilbos post.
