Crinum moorei, what does it want?
Thu, 24 Jun 2004 04:34:19 PDT
I have C. moorei that grow a few in pots and other in ground: In winter I left dry the pots and the plants  loose the leaves but within february or march with the first warmth they begin to grow and they are blooming now with long stalk over 150 cm in semi shade and plenty of water. About the plants in ground they can survive to -5°C. If grown in full sun the leaves are green-yellow and less luxuriant.
