Hi everyone,

My name is Ron Redding and I have been on a bulb collection rampage for 
nearly seven years. I have a very recent experience with "Walking Iris" or 
neomarica sp that form plantlets on the scape after flowering. I cut off and 
potted 30 plants six months ago in a "standard" potting mix and also staked 
down some plantlets.  I used no hormone and did not wait for roots to form, 
I now have thirty flowering potted plants and another large bunch of plants 
in my garden bed. I have found that these plants have an amazing will to 
live all by themselves and don't really need any help in my part of the 
world. I live in the sub-tropics in Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia and 
have a collection of warm climate bulbs and broms that I am very proud off, 
however I still have a large wish list and the more I learn to more there 

Kind Regards
