I think there is just one clone in the mainstream bulb trade but there are 
others in existence and it is quite easy to make them using the belladonna as 
the seed parent.  I think the one we all have is from pollen of moorei, I am 
not sure about the compatability of other crinums with the belladonnas 

Maybe someone else can elaborate on this?
