Andrew Gibson

Andrew Gibson is a Heritage plant originally collected by Andrew Gibson in the Karkloof forests outside Howick. The original date of collection is unknown, but is estimated to be in the 1980`s or early 1990`s. This plant displays a very unusual splash colouration. A line breeding program has been running for some years using Andrew Gibson, selfed seedlings and a similar plant called Candy Stripes. The F2 generation seedlings being produced have colouration remarkably like the parent Andrew Gibson. These plants are being marketed by Thurlow Flora as Chubb Splashes. Andrew Gibson is still an extremely rare habitat clone with only a few offsets having been released to Clivia enthusiasts. A clone of Andrew Gibson in flower was sold at the Clivia Society auction held in conjunction with the 2006 International conference for a price of R9500.00.
