Crinum

This is the beginning of another horticultural adventure.

I was given two bulb/seeds of crinum mauritianum, a plant that was endangered.  If all goes well, I will be contributing to its preservation.

I prepared two pots with a mixture of compost, molehill dirt and sand, in equal parts.

I placed the bulb/seeds on top and pushed down slightly, as advised by a site I consulted.

Next comes patience (a virtue).

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

    Why was this endangered? What will it look like once it grows? You see I have very little in the way of patience!

      I don’t know why it almost disappeared. It is in the amaryllis family. the leaves are long and pointy and the flower should be white, I think, rather wispy.
