    We’re about to dip our toes into working with some of our rare Botrychium species, both in propagation and potential augmentation/introductions -banking, too, if that is feasible. Does anyone have any experience working with these species that would have any advice? We’re going to look at working with spores and gametophytes and isolating mycorrhizae as well, but the general track record for getting these little guys to survive for any length of time is not good so we’d appreciate any thoughts on this.

    David, we may embark on a project to propagate B. pumicola, so I’m very interested in your post and what others have to say as well.  One aspect of this species is that it has gemmae on its roots that could be used for starting plants.  Have you looked into that with your species?  — Tom Kaye
