[Sansevierias] Seed cleaning



Just spent a pleasant 45 minutes in the garden cleaning some seeds from  Sansevieria grandis var. zuluensis Bally53209. I got 29 nice large seeds and now have orange hands. I will probably be sowing them in the next week or so. The picture shows the fruits the orange ones are ripe the green ones unripe. They were self set. 
Now the flower spike has been cut off I can at last clean the window and let the light in.
At the bottom of the picture is the top of one of the large leaves they  reach up to 3' long. The var. zuluensis is regarded by most as just grandis now but as this is from a cutting from Kew from the original Bally plant I'm labelling it as such. You will be able to read about this in one of the forthcoming ISS journals either #32 or 33 not sure which one yet.

I have updated the index for the International Sansevieria Society Number 1-31. I have added it to the files under Library both as an Excel and PDF file.
Back issues of the journal are still available from the website except No.1 which is out of print, so will become a collectors item.


Lord Gamesby on behalf of true scholars everywhere, I thank you! <deep curtsey>

[Sansevierias] BOTANY




John Kay.  Dr. John Hope, Professor of Botany in the University of Edinburgh Kay's Originals, Vol 2, page 412

John Hope (1725-1786) was a Scottish physician & botanist. He is best known as an early supporter of Carl Linnaeus's system of classification. He served as president of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 1784-6.  Hope was the son of surgeon Robert Hope & Marion Glas.  He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh. He took leave to study botany under Bernard de Jussieu at the University of Paris, but returned to his studies in Scotland, graduating MD from the University of Glasgow in 1750.



Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

For the next decade he practiced medicine, indulging in botany in his spare time. In 1760, he was appointed as King's Botanist & as Professor of Botany & Materia Medica at the University of Edinburgh.  Hope succeeding in combining the gardens & collections at Trinity Hospital & Holyrood to a new, combined site on the road to Leith. He also succeeded in obtaining a permanent endowment for the garden, thus establishing arguably the first ever "Royal Botanic Garden."

When Hope became the 6th Regius Keeper of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in 1761, he made a momentous decision early on in his tenure: close down the existing small physic gardens at Holyrood to create a new, much larger garden on a 5 acre site on Leith Walk.


Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

At its entrance, Hope decided to build a little house which could serve as a gateway to the garden, a home for his head gardener, & a classroom in which he could teach medical students about botany it would come to be known as the Botanic Cottage.


The Botanic Cottage at the entrance to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Designed by noted architects John Adam & James Craig the latter responsible for designing the layout of Edinburgh’s New Town just a few years later in 1767 – the Botanic Cottage was completed in 1765.  Hundreds of students learned about botany in its large upstairs room overlooking the garden, hearing directly from Professor Hope about his experiments & studies, & referring to his detailed diagrams & illustrations.

[Sansevierias] Tracking sugar movement in plants



From: john.gamesby <at> ntlworld.com
Message: Tracking sugar movement in plants

Title: Tracking sugar movement in plants
URL: ScienceDaily
Summary: A long-held belief that plant hormones control the shape of plant growth has been overturned by new research. Instead, it has shown that this process starts with sugar. Researchers conducted critical radiotracer studies that support the new theory that plant sugars play a dominant role in regulating branching at plant stems. While branching has relevance in agriculture, it is also very important in bioenergy crop production.

Oh certainly a possibility, and the higher the number of propagations, the greater chance that something will show up. But consider that trifasciata laurentii was for many years the most popular houseplant in the USA due to indestructibility and being large enough to make a statement, it was grown in lets say football field sized areas in places like Apopka Florida, and distributed all over the USA. and how FEW aberrations did it produce left to its own devices?  let's say 75 years go by and you get a Bantel's Sensation and some hahnii things. out of MILLIONS of plants.
now suddenly all I am saying is hardly a month goes by that something NEW AND DIFFERENT does not show up.

 Many of these color patterns have already shown up.The Futuras and the Hahnii's tend to have wider leaves than their standard sized cousins.  Chemical treatments will never produce a color pattern that mother nature herself can't produce given sufficient time. Scientists have introduced genes to make thornless blackberries and the like, but I don't equate this with chemical treatment of sansevieria rhizomes to produce variegated plants.
Also, the sudden appearance of a number of Florica designed Futuras might have something to do with the time involved to raise, by tissue culture, the number of plants it takes to supply all the Lowes and Home Depots, and other plant places around the country and all in time for Spring The Mrs. and I visited Costa Rica a few years ago, and we saw vast acreages devoted to shade cloth where various plants are produced en masse for export.  Agriculture is a very big industry in C.R.

I had noticed that the place itself has been dabbling in Sansevierias
and Dracaenas. one of their Dracaenas i saw in the mid sixties in
Roehr's nursery. Roehr's used to grow stock material in Puerto Rico
and have VAST boatloads of propagating material shipped to them. I
saw this brilliant chartreuse striped Dracaena, only three plants in
their propagating area, and those three were not for sale. it was not
until the mid eighties I saw plants of that kind of colouration. Of
course the same variegation or colour aberration can pop up anywhere,
any number of times. I suspect Florica has been fooling around with
chemicals because wow suddenly they have several "new and different"
Sansevierias popping up. And Dracaenas.
Roehr's was owned by Graff, who put out EXOTICA.
