Did you buy all the 70 different Nerines, bulborum?

It's a lot of nice plants you show us!

Here are two I observed last time I visited Africa: Gladiolus watsonioides and Scadoxus multiflorus.

I have only seen a photo of Gladiolus orchidiflorus once before, and I wondered if a glad flower could really look that cool.  Now that I see your picture, Roland, I know the first photo was not a trick!

All really neat plants.  That Massonia looks so tiny. How small is it?

Its only a few cm high

The seeds aren't germinated
but in a few years I hope to post my own pictures
as far as I know it just recently got the name Massonia wittebergensis
I think there are a lot of unknown species in Africa
