Gloriosa Lily, Seedling Id. I planted the whole berries. Planted Fresh, just covered with soil and kept damp in temps 80°F+ took 30-45 days for germination.
Gloriosa Lily, Berries on the vine (which hold the seeds). There is one seed per berry. I planted the whole berry, fresh off the vine. Germination in 30-45 days in very warm temps (80°F for lows).
Here is a group of Seedlings of various ages. If you didn't know what they were, they look like inch vine starting.
I dug these yesterday as the vines were beginning to die back -- the fatest is 1-1/2" wide while the longest piece is just under 1 foot long.
