Dear All,

Can anybody give me information on further reading on apomixis in Nerine and 
Amaryllis belladonna? (Apomixis means setting seed without pollination, the 
seed being genetically identical to the parent)
Apomixis can be very frustrating and misleading when hybridising Nerine and 
Amaryllis belladonna because the assumed hybrid seeds may just be apomictic 
seeds and no hybrid at all.

Looking forward to hear from you

Greentings from Germany, Uli
