Massonia depressaI (Hedgehog Lily) is a South African bulb. We managed to get seeds from South Africa and its harvest date is 2016 so seeds are pretty fresh.  Members of this genus are easily grown from seeds. Sow the seeds right before the growing season and cover with a thin layer of medium. Seeds will germinate in 2-3 weeks. First year seedlings make a single cylindrical leaf, and each progressive years, the leaf gets bigger until two leaves per bulb appear. Africaan names for this plant are bobbejaanboek, suikerkannetjie, botterkannetjie, ramblom
