I went onto Ebay to look for 36 cm+ sized amaryllis hybrid bulbs for Christmas gifts to neighbors.  I almost by accident saw a listing for a single offset of Worsleya procera, with the current price of ~$32 US.


It is being offered by an individual in Italy.  I am unsure whether or not it is only going to really be accessible to individuals in Europe.  The cultural conditions for this bulb's optimal growth are more than I could manage with my current situation, so I just kept on going.

I hope that the individual who had placed the sole bid on this rarity won't curse my name for having brought it to the attention of the PBS listserv, but greater interest will spur greater availability (hopefully in the intermediate run).
