RE: Excellent discussion of clivia terminology/ breeding

Redbeard, thank you! I'm a relative newbie with clivias and the terminology definitions are scarce and often confusing. I have a few seedlings from China, also about 20 offspring from my Home Depot specimen. I got inspired last spring and pollinated its 2 blooms with a q-tip. All but 3 seeds from both have grown. Will find homes for most of the HD seedlings, now that I've become aware of how large the plants will become..... I have a couple of Painted Face, one variegated, 3 yellow, all from Chinese seeds. I live in Northern Michigan and the plants can take over the house in the long winter....
