Hi everyone,

This morning I went outside to find something shocking in my pot of Oxalis
pocockiae. The area where the leaf petioles meet the soil was bursting with
strange fleshy structures. I immediately took a few photos and posted them
to the wiki to ask everyone's opinion. Upon adding the photos, I read the
caption saying that these plants produced lots of bulbils. So I suppose
that's what these are:

Does anyone know how long these bulbils will last? I have too many and I
think the BX could use some if they last long enough to go through the mail.

Sunny (finally!) Berkeley, CA where the bulbs have been unhappy with a
really wet winter and speckled from hail damage.
Canarina canariensis is blooming. The flowers lasted over a week now! It is
a must grow plant. I will add more photos to the wiki when I have some time
but in the mean while here are some from my Flickr stream.
