I raised Dionysia aretioides from seed 10 years ago. The seed was from my own plants. Seed sown in January 1997 germinated in March 1998, first flowers March 1999. I used a very well drained compost and kept the seed pots in a cold frame. Seed was surface sown and covered with 5mm grit. (My records show that a portion of the seed was sown in September 1996 but there is no record of germination from this sowing). Not much to go on - hopefully someone with more experience will chip in ... or you could try our sister society at www.srgc.org.uk their forum is more lively :-)
