south african bulbs newbie

fenius(9)September 24, 2012


I just came over from the fragrant forum to ask about some south african bulbs I just bought.

I was wondering if you could advise me on the substrate to use, pot size, planting depth ecc. for these:

boophone haemanthoides

ammocharis coranica

crinum acaule

hesperantha pilosa

thanks in advance!

Have you searched this forum for any of those "terms"? There are a few on the List that grow them but most of us grow Amaryllis and HippTheastrum. Blue bonsai (on of the listers) and Joshy grow these bulbs. Search and you may find something on this forum.... But probably not as much information as you really want! There is probably a better forum for your question...

thank you guys!
in fact I had seen this message but I thought maybe someone could offer more direct instructions so I'll probably try to contact the listers directly!!

That would probably be best and yield more appropriate results!
