Interesting.Please also mention about the following,unless it is confidential,shouldn't be though:
. How is the red thread collected ?
. Is it further processed or preserved?
. What is the form of the end product?
. Is it a commercial project or just as a hobby?
. Is it the same thing as Crocus?

I would really like to know since when and how you are managing to grow them successfully? ? Multiplying is not an achievement but if it flower successfully then that's an achievement, please reply in detail as when to plant, soil composition, any fertilizer if u r applying, exposure and how to secure them for following season, I would love to grow them but the only issue is they are native to cold areas.
