Cryptostephanus
« on: May 29, 2011, 05:12:48 PM »
I posted one of my Cryptostephanus vansonii plants in flower under the bulb section. Is there anybody out there that could help me find seeds or a plant of Cryptostephanus haemanthoides please. I have been trying to find a plant for about two years now with nothing to show yet. I thank you in advance.

Heini, As I explained, we are still in the pre-launch phase, so I don't think you'll get any offers soon. It would probably be worth your re-posting your appeal for the Cryptostephanus seed in a couple of months time, when we hope the forum will really be getting under way....

I am bumping this topic because the forum is nicely settled in now.

I am still looking for seeds or a bulb of Cryptostephanus haemanthoides. Is there any member that knows about someone that grows these plants.

Try "Bulb d`Argence" www.bulbargence.com.  None of your species are listed in his catalogue but he will have a strong network and may just be able to help.  His name is Lauw de Jager

 I have gardened in sub-tropical Florida, maritime UK, continental Europe and the Mediterranean basin, France. Of the 4 I have found that the most difficult climate for gardening is the latter.
