I’m interested to hear more about M. Sanguinea… because it’s a very rare plant in cultivation and not very much is known about it, has it flowered for you, do you grow it under glass or in the garden and how do you over winter it!

Thanks,
Tony

Hi Gilian, the Sanguinea is looking good icon_thumleft can you tell me were the plant/seeds were collected… was it Assam!

I will send you pics of the orange and zaifui after the weekend, I’ve just moved house and I’m very busy at the moment.

Thanks,
Tony

Tony,
The seeds were collected at the University of Gent, Belgium.
Where that plant originated I don't know.

Kind regards,
Remko.

Hi Gilian,
Apologies for the delay, I’m very busy with the house at the mo.
I have posted your nanas today… M.orange and zaifui I’ve also sent you a small M.rubinia to add to your collection, a very rare nana.
Hopefully they will be with you next week :) I will pm you my address

Thanks for that information Remko icon_thumleft

My rubinea came from Mark Hall several years ago and his original plant came from Nature products

it’s an easy nana to grow… pups well and is reasonably cold tolerant I’ve had a corm survive -5c and re-grow again, but every time I get this plant to flowering size it dies before flowering… not sure why that is icon_scratch
