Luit ,

It is clear that this plant is expensiv .
I believe there is not a problem with pollination ( if it is self fertil ) - I have pollinate my H. coccineus and I get seeds ....

Hi Luit, I checked your bulb on the book "The Genus Haemanthus", but your bulb doesn't fit the exact description of this species. Leaves narrowly ligulate (100-)150-350 mm long, 15-35(-40) mm wide....abaxial surface speckled with red towards the base, rarely immaculate...margin red, smooth or fringed with long soft hairs.
Maybe you can take the measures of your plant.
Ciao

Hello Alberto, the plant was sent into the weekly flowershow in Lisse by someone else.
We have looked in the book and discussed the leaves, but the grower said that the measurements
of the leaves in culture and in nature may vary, depending on the circumstances. i. e. weather, soil, how much nutrients the plant was able to take, etc. etc.!
But I will see the grower next week and ask him again.
Luit van Delft, right in the heart of the beautiful flowerbulb district, Noordwijkerhout, Holland.

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum
