    Oops, I got them out of order so read the captions! #4 is for sale; holding my breath on #5! and too soon to know how I will re-act to #6!

    Enjoy!

    Beautiful display, Rebecca! The nursery I visited had a Great stock. Check out this photo and yes, the colors are correct---SO rich! Unfortunately the price was outrageous so I had a terrible time walking away but absolutely NO choice.

    Good looking display of Clivia (miniata most likely) and yes, they are expensive and those appear to be at least 4 years old, maybe 5. I have to know, though, HOW MUCH were they asking?

    I need to post a few pics of my seedlings on Tinkers to let them see, especially John, who was responsible for dispersing all of the seeds Dries brought to him back then. It's a shame Dries is no longer with us to see the fruits of his labors. . . .

    Didn't I send you a miniata seedling?

    Oh! before I forget, I crossed my #1 miniata with the #4 seedling - all 14 blooms, so there could be "hybrid" seeds in the offering in 9 months or so. :-)

    Rebecca, are you sitting down? $240.00 ! They're VERY well established and full pots. Even though I was carrying my b'day money it was still way out of my reach :-p
    In answer to your seedling question...no...I have only hippies...not that I"m complaining. All from the last shipment are still doing well.

    While I know that Clivia can be expensive, even THAT is a bit over the top! Someone's making a mint - or will if they can sell them all at that price! You will be next in line for some seeds to grow on to benefit us both!

    I agree. No one was knocking me down to grab one to get to the check-out ;-) Even w/3 to 5 in the pot I had to settle for drooling over the rich color tones and taking home only a photo! I'll be happy to try some seeds when you're ready. In the meantime here's a photo of my latest blooms w/my last clivia miniata to bloom.

    Patsy,

    you should try self-pollinating a few of your miniata blooms, can take 9 to 12 months for the pods to ripen, but then you can have a nice lot of seeds to grow on for practice before I send you any of the cross seeds and it will be when THEY are ready, not me! They do take a while to form and ripen! Not speedy like hippies!

    Nice lookin group of hippies! Who's in the lower left hand corner? In the vase. . .

    Lovely pix of your Hippies and Clivias Patsy

    Lovely bright colour in the Nursery Clivias - Nice short broad leaves which is not typical of the miniata. There also do not seem too many blooms in each umbel. Perhaps next time you call in you should go armed with a paint brush

    Rebecca
    You are teasing us It looked like a lemon or off white in the last picture but the buds are so hard to judge. I will be keeping my eye out for this page

    Abby, many have looked like they would be pale cream to yellow, but then color would creep into the buds. I am waiting for a few more buds to open before I will say for sure what color this one is, or post an image. But you have a clue! and so far, so good, maybe even great! Oh and it ain't a pink!

    What a difference a few days can make! At the time of my last post, this seedling (#5) only had 1 bloom open. Yesterday It was better, much better and NOW I WILL SHOW her to you!

    She is NOT from the bred for yellow seeds, but from the mixed colors seeds! I wanted to wait just to be certain she didn't color up after the blooms opened! Now to see what #6 does - it still isn't showing any color, but it also has a couple of weeks before it is ready to open any buds.
