Caliphruria 2013
« on: June 07, 2013, 05:55:42 PM »
This is Caliphruria korsakoffii from Peru, South America.  This is a dwarf cousin of Eucharis.

They spend the winter in the Clivia greenhouse, but are not left 100% dry.  In summer, they do best outdoors in the lath house under a misting system.

We have seen this plant only occasionally in the forum, Jim. Is it scented?

This and the other Eucharises do extremely well as indoor plants as they tolerate low light levels with no problems.

I have lost some plants in the Clivia greenhouse at +7C in the winter.  I think I should move them to another greenhouse with minimum 55F/+13C in winter.   One Caliphruria in the warmer one did better.

I dont know whether these are fragrant or not 75+ years of allergies and 40 years working in chemistry laboratories pretty much wrecked my sense of smell!

I think all my plants may be one clone, as I have never been able to set any seed on my Caliphruria.
