Hi Bernie ,

I know you like this pics  ;D ;D ;D
I have bought this Haem. X clarkei as Haem. 'King Albert' -but this is definitivly wrong, because 'König Albert' is a german cross from a Scadoxus - there exist a article about this crosses -if you are interest so I will send it to you as PDF .
Please write me private

Greetings
Hans

What is that pink powder on the seeds, Hans? I remember when i was little and my father used to buy Zea seeds to plant, and they had exactly the same powder and colour!

Yes Michael !
We call this in german "Trockenbeize" -but I dont know a translation .
It is very easy to use : take the seeds in a little platic cup . give a little of this powder - mix it well and take in a  fine sieve - later you have all seeds covered with a thin layer of fungicid .....and the rest you can use for the next time .
A other good methode special for fleshy seeds of Amarillids ( like Haemanthus, Clivia,Scadoxus ) is to lay it in a 1 % solution of H2 O2 for a hour !

A fairly literal English translation of "Trockenbeize" from the German would be  to "dry cauterise"... that is to say a  method of protecting the seed from corrosion.... I suppose there must be a neater way of saying this in English, but I cannot think of it meantime! Help, anyone?
