Re: Death in the (plant) family

Me, too, Kitty. I was just sitting here feeling sad about Auralie's clivia. Now I'm sitting here thinking about the clivia with my fingers crossed! Hope it works, Auralie.

Jim to the rescue! In a show of support, I think we should all keep our fingers crossed for those several months.
I love the fact that there is always someone on this list that has the knowledge to help us out.

Is there still any green to it ? If so, try cleaning off the rot
at the base, stick it into 10% Clorox for maybe 10 minutes, wash off and
then place into a glass with water just touching the base. Hopefully
you can support it above the glass base via the leaves. New roots
_should_ grow within several months, if you keep your fingers crossed
during that period...
