Subject: A. candidissimum

I am a new member to AEG but have been interested in the recent
discussions so thought I would make some humble comment. Some of my A.
candidissimum are in flower at the moment, some are finished and some are
still awakening from dormancy.All have come from the same mother plant. S=o
it appears that dormancy can and does vary depending on growing
conditions. The plants that have finished flowering were re-potted this
year in larger containers, fed, and watered by plunging the container in
water with a commercial dissinfectant (Jeyes Fluid) mixed at only 2.5ml
per litre. The ones that are in flower now are the mother plants and have
only been fed recently and watered normally. The plants that are still
coming through are probably too small to flower. As it is very difficult
to import tubers/plants into New Zealand we have to grow new varieties
from seed so this probably helps the plant adjust to the Southern
Hemisphere seasons.
