Thanks Ina, But how do they reproduce. A commercial grower will not wait  
forever for a bulb to multiply. Are they using a growth stimulating chemical 
on  the bulbs to speed them up? Any info you might know would be useful to 
me-Russ  H.
PS What is the chance I could buy a couple of these sterile bulbs from you? 
 Of course I would expect to pay for packing and postage. Send me an email 
to _jadeboy48@aol.com_ (  Thanks

As I  have the one which does not produce seed, I know they do not 
gettiny  bulbils on them, nothing whatsoever Russ.  And they are pretty 
slow  at multiplying as a bulb.
