Is it difficult to grow Hans? I would like to try it. I'm sure I can find some space.

Hi Hans,
do you grow other Haemanthus as well? I grow H.albiflos and sanguineus and also the near related Scadoxus puniceus (syn. H natalensis). I am looking for seeds of the others but since the seeds are fleshy, they are only possible to store for a very short time  :(

Hi Peak ,

Yes - I grow a lot of other Haemantus and also many Scadoxus - but in this time .....
Many of them are youngplants - but I have also a lot of seedlings ( selfgrowing )- maybe we can swap -please contact me private .
Yes - of course this seeds are only for a short time can be stored -thats the reason for my offer .

Hi Hans,
I have noticed you also grow Habranthus, are you interested in all bulbous Amaryllidaceae? I also have a lot of young plants and also some seed. I will compile a list of what I have and send it private to you!

Anthony, supposing I had the space, I have enough bother with the stink from Arum dioscorides outside by back door!  :P I would worry that the pong would kill little Lily, the newest member of the Young Clan, or she might fall into the flower and it devour her! :o

Anthony I only grow seed of plants whose website/URL I can remember off by heart! A chum in the North Island may want it though. He grows a lot of Amorphophallus species.
