Jim, I would imagine that Crinum uniflorum should feasibly grow in small pots, it being a somewhat smaller species than the majority of the genus. It isn't one I grow, although I would love to. I've never seen it available unfortunately. The only reason I think it would be suitable is due to it's miniature stature, but I don't know whether it's roots require more room than a pot of that size would provide? I thought I'd mention it anyway. Always nice to mention Aussie bulbs here. <grin> Cheers. Paul T. Canberra, Australia - USDA Zone Equivalent approx. 8/9 Min winter temp -8 or -9°C.
