Propagation

Thanks Mike, for your input.  The scenario I reference is a non-variegated leaf.  My thinking on
leaf/rhizome was that the
rhizome would probably only put out 1, maybe 2 plants at most, as opposed to probably 2 or 3 and possibly many
more from a
leaf.  

I have cut a 6 inch wide leaf vertically down the middle with no problems, but have not tried narrower cuts.  I
think it would work
if careful to be sterile and edges were dried well before planting.

Thanks!!!!
Russ.

Re: Norma Lewis

Hi, Alan,

I wonder if it's just that she didn't update her email address,
or something, so can't post to the list.

Re: propagation

Hi,

Alan has good advice, Russ. You will be interested in seeing
what the offsets look like.

Speaking of which: last Saturday I was in the Lowe's nursery,
looking at a shipment of 10-inch pots of sansevierias. It was
obvious that these plants had all begun life as starts of tri.
var. laurentii cuttings. Each pot was full of leaves--and they
exhibited the full range of colors and patterns, from trifasciata
reversions to frosty gray to what Hermione calls *plaid* to
Slipped Stripes to an almost Lillian True color pattern. Good
grief. What are we sansevieriacs to think about our varieties?

naah it doesn't work that way, when you get a calloused leaf section with 
roots and keep it in a hot humid greenhouse, you can get many children from 
that leaf segment.  you can remove the children and replace the leaf 
cutting, and this can go on for over a year!

I think the more vegetative reproduction of this plant, the more variants 
we shall see. with TIME and selection, some percentage of these will be stable.

CRIKEY! i saw a pot of Lilian True in the background of some TV show!

What is the correct name of my plant

I think my plant might be a a cultivar that descends from Sansevieria 
trifasciata 'laurentii'. Yet the shape of the variegated stripes is 
similar to S. trifasciata 'Futura Simplex'. Some leves have more than 
one variegated stripe, just like like "Simplex".

On some leaves the width of the outer stripes do not seem to match 
the stripes on the reverse.

Could this be "Slipped Stipes". As for leaf cuttings, the bases of 
the leaves seem to die off relatively quickly after the leaves are 
severed from he prent plant.

Do ypu have any ide as to the nme of the cultivar?

S. FKH424 seedlings....

Hi all!

Just tought I'd share a couple of pictures of my 21 months old
seedling of Sansevieria 'FKH424'. Notice how it already have
started to produce a new plant :)

Isn't that quite early to build a rhizome?

Note that the plant is in a 5cm big pot.

Brookside Nursery

Hello everyone,

Just a small announcement that you might find very interesting. Brookside Nursery has now left Horsham and
has moved to this adress:

Little Acre, Boston Road, New York, Lincs. LN4 4YP 
 Tel.01526-342156 Fax.01526-344654

I have spent the last week in London and while I was there it was possible for me to go to Brookside with my
friend Mike Phillips.

Even though all of the plants had not yet been unpacked did I have a wonderful afternoon in Lincolnshire. It
was a nice and sunny day and it was a great feeling to walk around in the garden, looking into all of the boxes
to see the National collection,UK and all the other plants in the private collection as well as the plants
for sale.

Did I buy me some new plants? Of course I did. There was so very much of interest.

Thank you Mike and Nigel, alan and Ziad for making my holiday in England such a great experience.

Regards
Marianne, who hopes to be back very soon. Can't wait to see all the plants when they are placed in the new
tunnel, that will soon be put up.
