Crinum

Crinum is a large genus in the Amaryllidaceae family found in tropical, subtropical and warm temperate regions in Asia, Australia, Africa, and the Americas. Most of the species are summer growers and have large, showy, fragrant flowers. The bulbs are large and long lived. Rachel Saunders and Jim Waddick gave some good advice on how to grow Crinum from seeds. Seeds should be sown in a well-drained mix. Make a small depression in the potting soil and place the seeds in the depression. Do not cover the seeds. It doesn't matter which way you plant them, they will sort themselves out. Seeds will germinate will with warm temperature, high humidity, and good contact with the soil. Keep the pot constantly moist. Fresh seeds germinate fast and grow to a good size in one year. With routine fertilization, the seedlings will mature quickly and will need to be repotted. Planting the seeds in a large container will reduce the number of repottings. Another resource for this genus is Al Sisk's web page
