Hi Bill

I will check, I did find the abstract on-line since it was a year ago that I
downloaded it. My membership needs to be renewed, but if you wish to join
Acta Horticulurae it is available there, since I just double checked the
abstract, which is free, so it is still available.

This information came from an Israli study by H. Lilien-kipnis, entitiled
(for the cut flower industry). From, my memory, I believe that the article
did not specify which Amaryllids also held this habit, however, it did speak
to the fact that this is a problem facing commercial Nerine growers in
Israel and the discovery of damage caused to inflorescence buds at a
particular developmental stage during the long period between floral bud
initiation and antheses.
I believe that Alan Meerow may have some information weather this also
occurs with Eucrosia species and perhaps Griffinia, other "fussy" bloomers
in Amaryllidaceae.
