Sun Ray lamps?

Nothing special.
These plants are in an unheated greenhouse.

has anyone got a strong well flowering pure White Lewisia tweedyi - mine just limps along from year to year - never produces many flowers and never seen any seed off it - all the other colours do well with me just the white plant I have never looks good?

I had a nice one. Right up to the time it died :(

I had a mixed seed pot - var rosea and alba (from the year before). I had hoped I had several albas but it seems all the rest were roseas. If anything the alba was bigger and more vogorous than the roseas.

Johan, nice collection there. Are they all in the garden, I have never dared to try them outside in my climate?

Thanks for the nice comment David.

Only the last picture is taken in the garden.
Other plants in the garden will start to flower soon.

The other plants stand in an unheated greenhouse in a pot, and a few in a small rockgarden in an open greenhouse.

Lewisia rediviva

I think this is their third flowering from seed sown in January 2009
I had seed from AGS and SRGC seed exchanges but it was from the same donor.  Many thanks to Mr & Mrs Fowler for collecting such fine seed which has given me plants that have survived my hit or miss cultivation for longer than any I've had before.
