Hello Dan,
I've never germinated my seeds (successfully).  I've been hoping someone
more knowledgeable would have answered, but I'll give it a shot!
The calla lily (Zantedeschia) seeds should not be dried.  Using gloves,
remove the fruity part of the seed to expose the inner seed.  The pulp can
be irritating....  A person I know who germinated successfully put the seeds
in a moist paper towel and put into a ziploc bag until the seeds germinated.
I hope this helps!  I don't know about the rest period- I don't think they
need that.

Can anyone tell me ,

When are my calla liliy seeds ready to be planted, do they turn brown or

Will hybrid seeds sprout at all?

If they will sprout, how do I plant them, do they need one of those
refirigeration rest periods?

These are millinium gold seeds which the bees were kind enough to pollinate
for me.


Thanks Dan
