Nerine 2008
« on: August 23, 2008, 05:04:06 PM »
Hi all, Nerine are going to bloom.
Here is N. gaberonensis, with pink flowers. it is told it is evergreen, but it is deciduous in winter almost with me.

Best wishes,

Alberto,

Aren't species Nerine so cool.  8)  Can't say I've come across that species before, and I do like the way the flowers are so swept up, quite distinct from any other species I've seen (or at least seen in person).  Great to see it.  Thanks very much.  :D
Cheers.

Alberto - New to me as well, thanks, quite neat.  I was shocked Friday night to see leaves emerging on N. undulata, N. flexuosa 'Aba' and a flower stalk shooting up on N. 'Fothergillii Major'.  These had just been cleaned and repotted a few days ago. they are incredible at detecting a slight drop in night time temperaures. hopefully the warm weather will keep the rest shut down as 27c today and 19c at the moment.

This is N. filifolia. It is an easy species to grow from seed!

Alberto,

It's one that never sets seed for me here.  I get seed from undulata, masoniorum, flexuosa alba, angulata etc every year, plus some years from pudica and humilis but I can never recall ever getting a seed from filifolia.  I wonder if we have an infertile clone here in Aus, or whether there just needs to be more than one clone of this species to produce seed?
Cheers.

Usually I collect a lot of seeds from my plants! and they are from only one source.

Alberto,

Yours were grown from seed though weren't they?  Which means that they're multiple clones, not just offsets from an original plant.  All of my filifolias came from a purchase years ago.  Other species I mentioned will set seed with just a single flowerhead, but even with masses of flowerheads on the filifolia I've never known a seed to mature.
Cheers.

They are available from

www.africanbulbs.com

in April, 2.50 for 8-15 seeds.

How many years does it take to flower?

Hans, What an odd shaped flower! Good colour with the dark striping.

Re N. filifolia, I have never had seeds on my plants but it produces offsets at an amazing rate and there are always plenty to spread around.
