south african bulbs newbie

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!

RE: south african bulbs newbie

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...

RE: south african bulbs newbie

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!!

RE: south african bulbs newbie

That would probably be best and yield more appropriate results!
