Thank you very much, Maria and L. T., for the pictures of the clivia ?Sir John Thouron?!

Maria, you are right: SJT is really big and very beautiful. And it looks healthy: No yellow or brown leaf tips are to be seen. I am always annoyed at leaves with brown or yellow tips. I do not like them. And the young plant is marvellous as well.

L. T., I am glad, that I will have the chance to grow such a famous and beautiful plant. I will take good care of it with all TLC, I can give.

With kind regards,
Elke

I peeled these seed pods tonight.  The yield is very low.  I was hoping for at least 8 seeds.

Maria, you would have to ride "shotgun" to keep Lionel on the "right" side of the road!

Even my simple post of telling Lionel and Debbie to come over for the NACS 2011 International Show in Longwood just before Cathy made her post above was deleted.

We are blessed for only one reason...to share.

Enjoy the collage.  Mike and his wife, Angie at Longwood Show.  This is not the same picture as the one on the Yahoo Forum.  It is a revised picture sent to me from the NACS President, Tom Wells.

Hurrah, L. T., I got your seeds! Thank you very much for this generous gift!  :thanks: I am always very pleased, how kind a lot of forum members are.

Now I will treat these seeds with a lot of tender loving care and I am looking forward to a magnificent child of the clivia 'Sir John Thouron'.

With kind regards,
Elke

L. T. and all other!

Here is an update of the Sir John Thouron babies. The one in the background germinated faster and therefore grows a little bit better than the other. I only have to wait four year to see them blooming!  :thanks: again L. T.!

Hi Elke,

The seedlings look very healthy.  I know they are in a very good home.  Keep it up and soon they will bloom for you.  Thanks for the picture.

     Even the seeds of Sir John are beautiful.  They look as if they were dipped in a golden lacquer.
     Thanks to LT, and also to Mike Riska for making several batches of his Sir John Thouron X Self seeds available through Ebay last year, and to my friends Clarence and Gail for so graciously giving me a few.  Now begins a friendly race to see who brings this wonderful cross to bloom first. :)
