Last week, the technical-scientific staff of the Centro Flora Autoctona, helped by colleagues from the Parco delle Groane (a protected natural area just outside Milan), took soil samples from the sites where πΈπ‘™π‘’π‘œπ‘β„Žπ‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘–π‘  π‘π‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘›π‘–π‘œπ‘™π‘–π‘π‘Ž is present. This soil will be used to repot the plants already germinated at the CFA, to produce new seedlings starting from the seeds present in the soil itself and to optimize the ex situ cultivation protocol in parallel with the researchers of the University of Udine who are occupying the same species.

The soil was sampled from a small artificial pond, in normally submerged areas, and therefore did not affect the local population of πΈπ‘™π‘’π‘œπ‘β„Žπ‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘–π‘  π‘π‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘›π‘–π‘œπ‘™π‘–π‘π‘Ž.

In addition to the more mature plants, numerous very young seedlings born after the long summer drought, following the most recent autumn rains, were identified.
