Only the little tissue culture clones Mike, though they seem to be doing well. Keeping them in the coldest (relatively) bit of the greenhouse as they don't seem to like too much warmth

I did have one from STC but lost it due to RSM of all things!

I shall get another and try again. A big haemanthifolia is a very impressive plant. I believe it needs conditions and treatment rather like polyphylla.
