Just thought I'd give a little update on how the bulbs I bought from South Africa are coming along.
Haemanthus humilis and montanus are growing well, as are Nerines filifolia and bodenii. No sign of the Brunsviglia or the 3 other Haemanthus. Two of these Haemanthus are winter flowering so maybe they aren't supposed to grow yet.
The nicest surprise is the pretty foliage from Velthemia bracteata. It is the wavy-leaved one on the right of the photo.
The tree Haemanthus do have roots, just no top growth yet. I took them out of their pots as I was suspicious that the 3 that hadn't grown were in the smallest clay pots. I have now re-potted them in bigger pots.
