Hello, My name is Chad Cox and I am relatively new to growing and collecting bulbs. I live in rural Sacramento county (zone 8) and have been collecting rare bulbs for about two years now. Some of my favorites include Hippeastrum, Brunsvigia, Griffinia, Cyrtanthus, Haemanthus, Phaedranassa & other similar varieties. I've also collected a few other interesting plants that are not bulbs such as various puya, Brunsvigia & Iochroma & a few others. I am interested in learning more about bulbs in general, in particular, methods of pollination and seed propagation. I am also obviously interested in obtaining seeds of species that I am interested in but currently unable to find elsewhere. I look forward to learning from the members of this list and hope that I can also provide some useful input at times. Thank you and Happy Holidays. Chad Cox Sent from my iPhone Chad L. Cox, Ph.D.
