Shouldn't there be some kind of award for that kind of patience?

There should indeed! I was given some fresh seed of I. histrioides 'Major' early last year. I sowed immediately in the garden itself and had excellent germination an a couple of months. When I lifted the little bulbs to pot them on, they were a good centimetre in diameter and 1.5 tall. I think it was because with soil under them there were no restrictions on their growing room.

My most recent planting (and the only successful one) of Iris histriodes came up in the second season.  But they didn't grow nearly that much!  :( 

Isn't it interesting, the little hook at the top of the first leaf....

Rick,
I had to go back to the full sized image of mine to check if it had that little hook and it appears to be there!
Here's the first signs of germination on the pot of Bellevalia tabriziana sown in April last year, a kind gift from Ashley

This iris didn't take as long as the Iris histrioides  ;)
Seed from Marcus Harvey in 2017 (per kind favour of Jacqui) of Iris wilmottiana sown in April 2017, 3 germinating this week! :)

Magnar,

I have a white glacidium,  I will send you seed if you like.  They are just about ready now.
