Dear Mariano,
I was thrilled when in Minas Gerais in April to find a single plant of what was probably Hippaestrum glaucescens in a paddock. I was in Montevideo also for a pretour of a plant conference on palms and cycads and can't wait to revisit South America so hopefully will be able to catch up with some bulb people next time. Of course any visitors to Queensland would find a warm welcome.
