Dear EU members of the PBS

The BX for bulbs is now open for orders. Every fully paid member with a 
postal address in the EU is entitled to order from this list.

You do not need to be a donor to be entitled to order. There is no limit 
on how many positions from the list you can request, but you are only 
allocated one portion of each item.

Please send your request by e-mail directly to Martin Bohnet, who is the 
director of the EU Bulb and Seed Exchange. Please do NOT send your 
request to the forum, these requests cannot be served. Please make sure 
you do not use the reply button when sending your request.

Martin's e-mail: garak@code-garak.de <mailto:garak@code-garak.de>

Orders will be accepted during a three day time window after the list 
went online, closure will be announced in the forum. This means we'll be 
closing at Wednesday night. Distribution will then be at random so that 
everybody has the same chance to get the rare items in short supply.

Please do not forget to include your postal address.

Each portion of bulbs will be 3 US $. For very big/heavy bulbs this may 
be doubled. Postage will be added at cost, converted into US $.

Donors will get 5 US $ credit.

Payment for items from the EU-BX can only be made by PayPal in US 
Dollars to the PayPal account of the Pacific Bulb Society. Please make 
sure that the PBS receives the amount due in US Dollars. Please go to 
the bottom of the Bulb Exchange page 
<https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/bx.html> and fill in the details and 
continue. It guides you directly on to your PayPal account. No cheques 
or credit cards can be accepted. Enclosed in the order, every recipient 
will receive a payment slip showing the details, please wait with 
payments until you have received your order.

Again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Uli

Uli's comments (items EX02_111-137):

All the Gesneriads except the Eucodonias are in short supply because my 
growing conditions are not ideal for this group of plants here in 
Portugal. Even if the rhizome you will receive may be small, it will 
produce a flowering plant this season. Plant the rhizomes immediately on 
receipt, keep it warm and moist but not wet. Once it has sprouted give 
good light but not scorching sun. It is important to grow them in warm 
but not hot conditions without extremes. Never let them dry out during 
growth, fertilize with low concentration but several times. In late 
autumn they will all go dormant and can be kept fully dry in their pots 
in their compost until they are started again next spring. Field data 
are available for the Seemannias. Sphaerorhiza sarmentiana is not the 
easiest Gesneriad to grow. I recommend Eucodonia for beginners.

Amorphophallus atroviridis
A relatively rare Amorphophallus, Tubers of good size but I do not know 
how big they have to be to be of flowering size. My plants have bigger 
tubers every year but so far have not yet flowered. Beautiful velvety 
dark green leaves with a pink edge. Fully dormant in winter, needs a 
warm and half shaded place in summer. Better under glass in cool climates.

Colocasia Pink China
One of the robust ones, I used to grow it in the open garden in Germany 
and it is considered fairly hardy but I never tried. Multiplies well. 
Needs a lot of water and fertilizer to look good, Dry winter dormancy.

Dioscorea discolor
Twining tuberous plant, vigorous, easy and beautiful. Very good under 
glass in cool climates or as a houseplant. Give good light to get nicely 
coloured leaves. Plant immediately and keep moist but not wet, best with 
some bottom heat to start. Is slow to start and will go dormant late in 
the season. Fully dormant in winter. Can grow to several meters in one 
season. Field data available.

Hippeastrum aulicum
One year old vigorous seedlings. I hope they did not suffer too much in 
the delayed parcel. Easy, almost evergreen with a very short summer 
dormancy or fully evergreen. Flowers around Christmas. Grows as an 
epiphyte so give well aerated substrate but do not let it dry out. Easy 
here in normal soil in the open garden, offset forming to big clumps. 
Prone to slug damage.

H. reticulatum var. striatofolium
Attractive foliage and beautiful pink flowers but not floriferous. 
Evergreen, attractive house plant

Neomarica northiana
Attractive blue and white flowers, plantlets form on the flower stalk 
afterwards, this is what you get. Evergreen, frost sensitive. not too 
much sun and always moist. Forms big clumps. Happy in pots.

Nerine bowdenii Typ Oswald
This plant is precious to me. It was given to me by an elderly plant 
breeder from former East Germany, his name is Mr. Oswald. He grew rows 
of it among his strawberries and beans and gave them a very thick mulch 
in winter. His garden was on sandy soil. Practically fully hardy, very 
vigorous and floriferous. But it does not like the mediterranean climate 
and is declining here. So here they are. Keep the bulbs in pots until 
they reach flowering size and then plant into the open garden, bury up 
to the tip of the neck or deeper. Can be permanently pot grown but 
better in the ground. I used to grow them in Germany in a well drained 
bed at the outside base of my frost free greenhouse wall. Heavy mulch in 
winter, remove this in spring. Full sun, Fertilizer. Comes true from 
seed. Mr Oswald could not tell me the origin of this very good form. 
Keep it happy and hand it to others. Nerine does not like root 
disturbance and will not flower the year of planting.

Sauromatum horsfieldii
A dwarf prolific plant with velvety green palmate leaves. The flowers 
have an offensive smell but do not last long. Take care not to spread 
the bulbili, it may become invasive in suitable conditions. I do not 
reuse or compost its potting mix. Best in dappled shade. Fully dry 
dormant in winter.

Spathantheum orbignyanum
A large Aroid with very big tubers. Summer growing, fully dry winter 
rest. Attractive leaves like a large Acanthus. The flowers are unusual, 
they look like a narrow leaf on a long stalk, the flowers themselves are 
under the "leaf". Strange smell. Flowers before the leaves. Needs a 
warm, sheltered and sunny position, Mine are pot grown, even in 
Portugal. Lots of water and fertilizer during active growth.  Field data
