Haemanthus coccineus

warrengkFebruary 21, 2011

question for you all, i have about 10 Haemanthus coccineus, right now their leaves are begining to die back, but ones leaves i notice have bright yellow spots towards the ends of the leaves. not all over the leaf, just the end. is this a virus, or could it just be the leaf dying back? none of the other ones are doing this, they are just dying back normally. i looked online and couldnt find any info on virus of Haemanthus coccineus. thanks!

I don't have an answer to your question, but this will bump it up again and maybe someone who knows will see it this time....

That looks like either sunburn or simply just dieing back.

I have 20 adult H. coccineus and about 30 juvinals. I've had teh adults for about 12 years. I live about a 1/4 mile from the Monterey Bay in a rather shady area. They always do well here.

I'm no expert. This is just my opinion.

I would say that the leaf is starting to dry or it got sun scorched.
I have four bulbs and the leaves grow inpressivly large, they dry off in summer and they flowered a few weeks ago,as the flowers are starting to wilt new leaves are appearing. I am no expert in them either.
