Hi all,

Does anyone know where the Cyrtanthus (elatus X montanus) gets its tendency to bloom more than once a year?  Has anyone ever gotten (elatus X montanus) to produce seeds with any other parent?

Are there any fertile interspecific hybrids known in Cyrtanthus?  I think Hadeco were doing some work with Cyrtanthus hybrids a couple years ago; has anyone heard of any developments from that source?

I have only a limited set of Cyrtanthus to play with, but have never gotten any pods from (elatus X montanus) or the others.

To my US countrymen, I wish a happy and full-filling Thanksgiving Day tomorrow!
