Will it work to propagate Ornithogalum magnum from seed?

I have a nice mature Ornithogalum magnum bulb that has been in the ground for several years. Last year after it bloomed I collected some seeds from it. Do you think I could grow more bulbs from the seeds? How long would they take to bloom?

Thanks for any tips,

Hey, thanks for tracking that info down Zubababy! Looks like it's not an easy plant to grow from seed but I might as well give it try since I've got a few seeds on hand that I collected. I won't hold my breath or anything though. ;)
Then again, I have managed to grow calla lilies from seed to blooming size and they started out with slow germination too. It took 3 years for the little bulbs formed from the seeds to mature enough to bloom! ;(

Might you have a few seeds to spare to trade? If so, please see my trade list and drop me an email.
