If so, turn to pg.228, and you will see a short article about it. If you do not have it, I'll copy it and post it to you right away. I've had it for about eight years. It is rather difficult to "deal" with. It keeps wanting to bury itself deeper than where it is planted. When it gets too deep, the leaves come up, but it doesn't bloom until I set it a little less deep. I'm not certain why, but I'm going to try a couple of ideas. Let me know about Herbertia. Doug PS, Someone from England just mentioned Paul. I asked him to ask Paul to Email us so that we will know that he is still "alive."
