Haemanthus coccineus

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....

RE: Haemanthus coccineus

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.

Hy If any of you get seeds I will love to exchange.
Please let me know.

RE: Haemanthus coccineus

Santo. I may have sopme seeds later this year. the bulbs are in bloom right now.

RE: Haemanthus coccineus

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.
