I have yet to read the posting over the last few days
but I wanted to put in my two pence before the TOW is
I only have a few species but they are really easy for
The abliflos (my specimen is pathetic) has flowered
once for me. I have ripped (literally) several offsets
off and the plant never gets properly planted
afterwards. it is laying on it's side, basal plate
exposed and it still goes on. Everyone wants to by the
poor thing (probably to save it from me <G>). But
since it is still the only one I have, I keep it. 
Tom, thanks for the info on how you grow yours. I will
plant mine now into a larger pot. 
Does anyone have experience with scaling or other mass
propagation techniques other than seeds? DougW? 
I have been offered a ton of Haemanthus species from
several sources in RSA. I have yet to decide which to
import. I am leaning on just getting coccineus
(flowering size) and that is all. 
The other species that I have are unifoliatus and
montanus (both these came from Hugh Bollinger's
The coccineus that I have is a huge bulb that is
splitting into 4 bulbs. That will make a few of my
clients happy. There are 2 guys that drool over it
everytime they come by and just keep asking to buy it.
