Dear PBSers,
	Interesting speculation going on here.

	I was surprised there is not a wiki page for Rohdea. There 
are hundreds of mostly Japanese cvs and the thicken roots make this 
and Kniphofia good candidates for our widely interpreted group of 
bulbous plants.

	The Mystery plant looks nothing like any species of Rohdea or 
its close relative Tupistra.

	Elaine should check out the PBS Kniphofia page… once 
your plant blooms and make a better comparison.

	And in general it is best to show a blooming plant to best 
aid in identification. Our IBS members are usually very able to ID 
even some pretty obscure bulbous plants.

		Let's see what blooms. 		Best		Jim W.
