It may take longer than that. 
Apparently some species of Aloe (not a bulb, sorry!) are so dominant in hybrids it is not possible to tell plants are actually hybrids by visual inspection of form or flowers.
When said plants are crossed within the F1 group, the subsequent variation in the progeny indicates the parents were themselves hybrids.
