not sure why this did not go through the first time ... but perhaps a second attempt will work ...

Not blooming now, but I am a bit excited by the Summer growth and foliage of some of my not-quite 4-year old Boophone disticha 'juveniles' ... and thought I would share:
In the future, I will attempt to plant the bulb's distichous foliage growth in parallel, as this clump of 8 bulbs loses some of the impact and looks kinda jumbled:
In this grouping, only the one largest bulb, which I purchased as a seedling 4 or 5 years ago, has bloomed for me.  The rest are my own seed-grown bulbs and I am hoping for bloom next year.  I have gotten other B.disticha to bloom at 4 years.
