Like Arnold, I also got my plant from the BX. It has been blooming for
months now. One day I decided to self pollinate it for fun and just last
week I noticed something interesting. There were swollen pedicels that
pushed what appears to be the pods down and into the ground below the
mother plant. I don't know of any bulbs that does this but perhaps someone
here does.
