My name is Dou Jian and I work in the Nanjing Botanical Garden Mem. Sun Yat-Sen.
Our garden has planted Victoria cruziana since 1985. This
year I became the new Victoria grower and found your website.
It helps me a lot!
To me, this job is not easy. We did not get mature seeds in
2005. We obtained 50 V. amazonica seeds from Xishuangbanna Botanical Garden (in a tropical
area in southern China, where I studied three years for my masters
degree). By March 2006, four V. amazonica seedlings had
survived and this inspired me.
