thank you Mary
I planted a garden orange I got from someone in a pot 5 years ago and there's now 5 plants in that pot all flowered last year.
The thing is not of my yellow grows robust or make offsets.

Hi Giovanni my large yellows have Vico in thier background and I suspect that may be part of the reason that they are so strong. They have been potted on to larger containers when necessary so that may have contributed to thier offsetting freely although I suspect it is just how they grow.  If you would like me to pollinate my large yellow when it flowers this year I am happy to do so for you, just let me know. cheers Mary

Joerg thanks for sharing your special plant. I can see clearly that this clump is very well cared for and from the leaf appearnce it is easy to see this one receives a lot of TLC. Is there someone in the next generation that shares your passion that will take care of the plant in the future ?

Kind regards
Eddie
A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

Mary your yellow clumps are just amazingly pretty. I can see you also have a real passion for your plants from the healthy appearnce of the leaves. When you say they were seed planted in 2001, were they single seeds per pot or multiple seeds per pot.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards

Hi Joerg,

Thanks for the details on your media, practice and climate, which are relevant to my local situation (though we  get less hard frosts than Wuppertal).

Hi Mary
I love the photos of your magnificent yellow. Of course a good part of my pleasure stems from the fact that I am  now taking care of lots of her brand new seedlings -  the first shoots are beginning to appear and it looks like they will be a mixture of pigmented and unpigmented seedlings so there is a lot of exciting potential there!

Hi Mark
This thread may have only just begun but I can see it running forever!

Best Regards
Nick

Not really yet. I could also imagine to donate all my plants later to our botanical garden in town, which is happily increasing during the last years. Time will tell.

Here is the second pot with suckers of 'Aenne' (pic of 2007)

And finally a pic of 'Mieze', our family heirloom. Nothing special, but really old.

Here's an old picture of my mothers beautiful Clivia + offsets..
I am not aware of the plants real age, but my mom has had the plant her entire life therefore it's at least 40 years.

Here's a new picture of my mothers beautiful Clivia + offset..(In 2011 I helped my mother to remove some of the offsets, and repotting it, and her clivia seems to like it.)

Giovanni B: I think your garden is beautiful, and it will for sure be more beautiful when time has done its work.. :)

Mary: I really like your clump of "Aurea"..  :good:

Joerg: 'Aenne' seems to have a good amount of florets.. I also think 'Mieze' is beautiful.. sometimes their history makes them even more admirable..  :)

That is from one seed Eddie, the sibling plant is in another large pot.  We are blessed with magic water so things all look very healthy and grow with much abandon. :)

Thanks Mark and Nick. :) Nick your seeds are from the sister plant and will be a lucky dip :)
Mark your Mothers plant is delightful, love the green throat.  Im quite sure the plant enjoyed being re-potted.

Hi Mark,

I like the flowers of your Mother's clivia, specially with the green in the throat. I think there are still quite some old hybrids around here in Europe. It's reported that E. P. Zimmerman, Californian clivia specialist in the first half of the twentieth century has sent back 10.000 seeds from his extraordinary stock to Germany and Denmark, and apart of others we also had in Hamburg and surroundings with several specialised nurseries a well known centre of clivia breeding in the last three decades of the ninetieth century.

Last year I got by chance another old hybrid 'Maja's Find', when a friend found it next the street, ready for bulky refuse.
She asked the people of the house to allow her for taking this big clivia container and was told that the owner died and the flat had to moved out. My friend gave the overcrowded pot to me for replanting and further cultivation, except a small sucker for her. This hybrid bloomed last year with several full umbels with more slender and red flowers, also with light green in the throat, which later fades. When I replanted the cluster I counted more than 50 internods on the biggest plant apart from its oldest basically part, where this internods were already weathered. I guess this plant may have more than 70 years of age. So it might also be bred in times before Second World War II. To find out more of its background I selfed it and am just ready to sow a first batch.

Joerg now that's a bargain. It seems to be a really nice red. If it is 70 years of age i should be calling it "Uncle" as i am still a youngster compared to your plant. Thanks for sharing these beauties with us. We really enjoy the pics.

Kind regards
