Yes, I'm thinking the tip area of the leaf  yellowing and dying back.... Diane's pic shows yellow patches near the leaf tip...  not the same thing.

I think David N. is away for a couple of days... so it may take him a while to catch up with this and discuss what his leaves are like.  :-X

Still here, away from tomorrow morning. Just a yellow spot at the very end of the leaves and not looking like it's travelling down the leaves.

Yes we are all talking about different things - there are yellow tips and YELLOW tips.

I thought it was yellow caused by die back on the leaf tips only - which is mostly caused by ecological  and not disease.

In Diane's pics we see that all the leafs have a slight yellow bit on the tip of all the leaves - this is nothing to worry about as it is the hardened tip the plant has evolved to push through hard ground.

The leaves in the centre of Diane's picture with the clear YELLOW areas, not confined to the tips, is something to keep an eye on. If it is stag of another fungal attack then you will soon notice distortion around the yellow zone as the leaf tries to grow then areas will turn brown then spores will develop - this is a fungal attack.
I would tear off the infected part of the leaves immediately and watch to see that no more areas become infected - if they do then isolating the pot or as Mark suggests checking the bulb for any symptoms.

Feeding with Potassium not only helps build flower buds for next year but also boosts the bulbs immune system so an early application could help the bulbs resist these attacks.

Thanks Ian and Maggi. Relief on my part but I'll keep a close watch on them, and feed them too.

Thanks,

I think it's quite lovely, too. It elongates only a bit as the flower matures, as you can see here: http://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6606.msg194198#msg194198

Muscari sp. from JJA Seeds (#689.851 Muscari leucostomum, ex. Tadjikistan).

Last year I posted this muscari as M. leucostomum by JJA seed list, and Janis kindly advised me this is not a M. leucostomum at least.

Muscari leucostomum from JJA Seeds (#689.851 ex Tadjikistan). I got this #689.851 seeds instead of "#689.850 ex Turkmenistan" on September 2008 list. It would be great if someone who knows further information tells me about it.

Afraid that it is not leucostomum, flowers far too light blue.
Janis

I still only have the seed number now :( Does anyone have further information about JJA #689.851??? please!
