New wiki photos; Worsleya bloom

Fri, 17 Sep 2004 12:18:03 PDT
i believe it's now Hippeastrum procerum.  

there was also a recent issue of the national
geographic magazine on brazil's atlantic rainforest. 
apparently there was a fire in one of the last
remaining known locations of this plant, which
severely reduced the population of this species.  did
anyone else see that issue?
