There are still a few Nerine bowdenii in bloom in the 
greenhouse.  Lachenalia rubrum rubidum is still blooming as well, and 
Lachenalia viridiflora is starting to bloom too.

Haemanthus deformis seedlings are starting to put out new growth, and one 
of them has a bloom on it.  They were started as seed from the PBS BX in 
May, 2008, so they are about 4.5 years old just now.

Haemanthus albiflos plants have long since finished flowering, and 
Haemanthus pauculifolius are just starting to bloom.

One bulb of Hippeastrum aulicum has a scape coming up.  Several other 
plants of Hippe. aulicum finished blooming several weeks ago.

The pictures of the Haemanthus should show up in my blog in a few days or so...
