Absolutely superb Paul, and thank you for the culture notes.

These logs should carry a health warning though because they seduce us into new addictions and may well spark a seed stampede!!! ;D

Ashley,

Daubenya isn't a new addiction for me.... I've lusted after them since I saw pics of the yellow and the red forms of D. aurea a number of years ago.  Still never got any seed of them as yet, although I have once or twice seen them on Silverhill list (it was a few years ago now since I ordered from them).  Unfortunately at the time I saw them I didn't have the money, and despite trying to track down a source of plants here in Australia I haven't yet managed to.  I love the whole Massonia, Daubenya, Haemanthus etc class..... all wonderfully fascinating plants!!  Great stuff on the log Paul. Brilliant!!
Cheers.
