I'm heard of floating method.  Adding a few drops of vitamin B1 and a few drops of liquid fertilizer, accelerates seed germination.

I wasn't the least bit offended, Alberto, but thanks for the reassurance.

I think we'd all still like to see the giant Urginea. If you send it to me I can make it available for the whole list.

included with them, a statement of how much money (usually $2.00/share of

treasurer. Postage and packaging charges are added.

     Many of you are subscribers to this pbs elist which is free, but are
not members of the Pacific Bulb Society which has a yearly membership
charge. THIS BX OFFERING IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO MEMBERS of the Pacific Bulb

advantage of future offers such as this. Go to our website:

(BULBS)

1. Babiana framesii- various sizes, some small cormlets

suspect is F. variabilis)
4. Freesia caryophyllacea - mostly cormlets
5. Oxalis flava (lupinifolia)
6. Oxalis obtusa (copper color)
7. Ferraria crispa - this one smells like vanilla, has been spreading
planted in the ground
8. Herbertia lahue
9. Muscari pallens
10. Oxalis polyphylla var heptaphylla MV 4381B -  4km into Skoemanskloof
from Oudtshoorn. Long, succulent, thread-like leaves.

From Randy Linke:

11. Cormlets of Chasmanthe bicolor

12. Tubers of Arum palaestinum

Vision) and Ixia (Giant)

Greetings,

  Nan sent me her pics and I've posted them online at:

  http://www.anexaminedlife.net/bulbs/um1.jpg

  http://www.anexaminedlife.net/bulbs/um1.jpg

  The images don't have references for scale, but I agree the bulbs looks about basketball size. I would say that this size is similar to , though smaller, than the largest Brunsvigia josephinae I've seen (though I doubt I have seen the largest possible). Even at this size, though, Tim's observation of a 20" diameter Crinum bulbispermum still beats it.
