Thanks Jim,

   I appreciate your response, somehow I ran across this Genus today and I was a bit shocked I hadn't ran across it any sooner as much as I read.  The leaves of T. mira look grass like, are they similar to Habranthus?  Is there any idea of what the flowers look like?

This is one of Ravenna's creations/discoveries.  See ref. at:

I have bulbs that I grew from seeds from Mauro Peixoto in Brazil, but they 
have not so far bloomed for me.   I'm not all that sure how I should be 
growing it.....
