Inspiring words Leo !!!!  Soon as I can find them, I will share some photos
of the petal variation in C.  flaccidum this year producing an unusual star
shape & wide petal unlike any other year.. Also Crinum Brisbanicum produced
far larger flowers this year one mature specimen measuring a spectacular
190mm on average this season, with a rose colour in their stems, most
likely mineral uptake or possibly magnesium deficiency, never the less,
very beautiful .. I also discovered brisbanicums this year with a pink hew
in the buds.. And closer to Fernvale QLD I found some brisbanicum or
flaccidum with bronze buds.. I must ask the farmer if I may have one or
seeds, because he usually runs the tractor over them before they flower,
but I will be keeping a close eye on them in case it is something unusual
rather than caused by mineral uptake.. Its all figures crossed... I also
have some very clear photos of Crinum venosum in bloom, so I must share
those too..
