Are you talking about Modjajdjie? There are no Clivia miniata's in the area only C.caulescence and thousands of them. The distribution of C.miniata stops on the north weatern boundry of Swaziland.

I have been through the reserve a few times, Ive never come accross C.caulescence in the reserve either but thats not to say they not there. But they can be found in large numbers in the Northern Drakensberg.

Hi Martin there are no botanical records of C.miniata ever having been collected there. That area has been extensively surveyed due to the threatened taxa that occur in the area.

There is a place in the Lekgalametsi Nature Reserve where the Mc Neill family stayed that they planted hundreds of C.miniata's into the naturnal forest  surrounding the reserve. It could have originated from there? As its not far as the crow flies.

As I mentioned earlier I even doubt that you would find C.caulescence in the Modjadjie Cycad Reserve as the area is not as wet as the forested areas you find higher up in the Wolkberg, areas like Magoebaskloof, and Lekgalametsi. The reserve is also prone to regular fires, wheres as the areas in which Clivia's grow the vegetation is mostly to wet to burn.

Extensive botanical surveys have been carried out within the reserve itself due to the reserves importance at protecting one of the biggest concentration of cycads in the world.

But then again every now and again plant species might pop up where you don't suspect the.

Hi George
What I know according to Henry
Two women walked in the reserve around fifty years ago and found this plant which became a family herloom , apparently Sean has verified this and the eople who have is Louis, Sean,Wayne Haselau I hope the spelling is right and Henry who gave me a piece,I too was very sceptical but coming from these gentlemen I have to believe it
