177mm Broadleaf
« on: May 30, 2007, 11:12:05 »
Here is a picture of Don Todd Holding a 7 inch wide or 177mm wide clivia.This clone was one of Joe Solomones personal privet collections that he obtained from Germany dont quote me as to it came from Germany.I do not know the story that well.
Any way this is a true monster for a broad leaf. The bloom spike well let just say it is a monster also.I do not have pictures of the bloom spike sorry.I just thought people would like to see this one.
I was helping Don Todd take offsets that were 1 and a half years old and they were already 93mm wide or 3 3/4 inches wide this is a very vigorius clivia.visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Hi Ray,
I hope this does not sound stupid but what's the colour of the flower please? It will also be interesting to know the length of the longest leaf so that it will give us an idea of the length to width ratio.

Ever tried breeding that with a broad leaved Chinese clivia?

Sorry all 5 offsets were taken off at the 5 to 6 leaf stage.They were sold well in advance.
The bloom spike was dark red orange.If anyone is interested I can make a list for the next offsets but that will be sometime.
Now there is another way to get a offset contact Tom Wells the vice President of the North American Clivia Society and he might make a order to Joe Solomones to order offsets of this clivia.The last price I know was 600.00 U.S for small offset or for Super already bloomed or close to it 1000.00 to 1500.00 U.S. Tell Him it is one of Joe Solomones 7 inch wide clivia he will know which one it is.
Also Joe Dana of the U.S. I think has offsets for sale.
Tell them both Ray Medrano told you.GOOD LUCK

OK the leaves are 3 feet long and 7 inches wide one leaf is 7 1/2 inches wide and the clivia is still getting wider as it ages.
At The North American Clivia show here in the U.S. this year Tom Wells brought a clivia from this breeding of Joe Solomones that was a short leaf of this monster clivia the leaves were as wide as the original but shorter the leaves on the shorter clivia was about 2 Feet and the flowers were dark red orange.

John Ingram,Can you post the pictures of this clivia so everyone can see.He was taking pictures of the show for the society.

Thanks Roger,

Well worth the revisit.

I wonder if any offsets made it back home to South Africa?
