I knew that question would come up! Frankly, I have no direct, clear proof that there are no 'real' differences. What I can say is that in fields where hundreds, if not thousands, of the bulbs grow (or once did) from both seedlings and by bulb multiplication, the lack of differences is surprisingly high. Sure, there must be some differences (albinos etc.) but compared to many south African species that Nhu might have considered for a test (from the Lachenlia, Ixia, Sparaxis, Watsonia etc.) this one would show less variance.
