I haven't started experimenting yet. I found a nice patch last week and am going to first try transplanting and seeing how that works. I have never seen the seeds but maybe one day!

any updates? Have you ever seen germination? do you know if people have grown them from seed?

Good luck...I'm not sure if they need a particular soil fungus or not but soil from the area should help. I'm thinking of experimenting with divisions of roots.

That would be wonderful ...... I have just collected some seed from the ones here to try. I gatheres about a gallon of soil too just to get a little bit of an edge.

I'd like to cultivate these and create a little woodland area with nothing but this for groundcover!

Gorgeous little orchid!

Thanks for sharing this, I love to see other varieties of the Rattlesnake plantains. Such an elegant yet understated plant.
