About PBX exchanges, I have a ton of Crocosmia "Lucifer" is that too pedestrian for PBX? Ledebouria socialis? Various Tulip hybrids? I have seen a few PBX and most were species I have no know knowledge of. Secondly in terms of lighting what do Hippestrum like? North window? I have none. Blocked southern exposure? Middle of the house? I have been keeping Hippeastrum reticulatum var. striatifolium there and it does not seem happy so I put it on the sill with a NW exposure, which is usually dappled light. The reason I ask is that my wife would love to have some plants that were more away from the windows, and I thought these fit that bill. I come from a Cactus-Succulent-Caucidiform background, but I started to find bulbs interesting and am trying to get some unique ones going in my yard. I just learned about Marah oreganus, and have been feverishly to locate specimens to get seeds off next year. I would love to have the caudex showing in my yard with the vines growing onto my deck. Mounlake Terrace, WA USDA 7b/8a depending on how I squint.
