So most of these seeds have successfully germinated, but Christmas happened. I went home from university and my housemate very kindly watered my plants while I was gone. But I didn't give her proper watering instructions...

I understand the seedlings only have one leaf while small and most of these leaves have died off, is there any hope for these to still live?

I'll post pics on Monday if needed.

Dig in the soil to see if there is still a tiny bulb. Should be small, could be hard to identify if just like with mine they are in soil mixed with small white / greyish pebbles...

Don't want to hijack this thread but I've just received some Massonia echinata seeds, will sowing now be an issue? Really useful info earlier on about sowing mixes.

Yes some of them do have tiny bulbs, that's good news?
