1 item found for "elaiosome"
- Trillium propagation - A series of photos
The seeds have en attachment called an Elaiosome which attracts ants which help disperse the plant. (Myrmechochary) The elaiosome may be important to remove for propagation but I have found lightly cleaning Some folks use Hydrogen peroxide to dissolve the elaiosome or at least weaken the attachment.
