  Nepthytis
From: "Agoston Janos" <agoston.janos at citromail.hu> on 2006.12.11 at 11:32:14(14918)
Dear All,

I asked several months ago how shall I germinate Nepthytis.
Well, thank you for those who have helped me with instructions because one of 2
seeds germinated a month ago.

I'm very happy. It is also a tropical aroid, so I should keep
it warm? (The Aroids boo did not arrived yet...)

Bye,

Jani

Jani,
I have grown Nephthytis afzelii for a number of years and find it very tough and adaptable. It grows very well as an ordinary house plant and I have a large specimen about 3ft tall which lives in my living room in front of north facing windows and is always in berry.

Regards,
Geoffrey Kibby

Dear jani,

I am glad to hear that you have had sucess w/ the Nephtytis seeds.
It is a tropical plant, and as far as I know it does not go dormant or have
a 'rest' period, so keep them warm and moist at all times!

Good Growing,

Julius

Dear Geoff,

Nice 'hearing' your voice.
The genus must occur in nature as an understory/VERY low light plant seeing
that it does so well in your living room in London! What would you say the
temps. are during a 24 hr. period in that same room? There are several
more species, some minatures that I USED to have that are to me VERY
beautiful plants, at least one was available at a past IAS show.

The Best,

Julius
