Hi all I was wondering if someone could help me straighten out a little problem I have with the species names of some Haemanthus seedlings growing from BX-173. I received seeds of the three species: 14 >-- Haemanthus amarylloides ssp polyanthus 15 >-- Haemanthus barkerae 16 >-- Haemanthus coccineus but was late for leaving for vacation when I sowed them. The old adage, that "I'll remember what is in each pot, and label them when I get back.", was employed, since the whole family was scowling at me impatiently. Well, we all know how well that works. H. amarylloides I did manage to get marked so that I remembered, but not so the other two. One of the species ( H. barkerae or H. coccineus ) has very pronounced spotting on the lower portion of the cotyledon, the other none. So, if anyone also growing either of these plants could let me know the status of the spotting, I'd be really grateful. Thanks Dave Brastow - Tumwater, Washington USA - 7A P.S. I've since discovered the Marks All pen from Sharpie. This writes in opaque white, which shows up on black / dark green pots, and is quite durable. At least now I can scribble a number on a pot if I get hurried.
