Back in early February we had a brief thread which began with speculation about the identity of plants sold as Crinum thaianum in aquarium stores. Jim Waddick mentioned that  bulbs of aquatic plants were being sold in clam shell containers in aquarium stores. That was enough to get my attention: I was soon off to check out the local tropical fish stores and came home with two little plastic boxes of dry bulbs. 

Two of those bulbs popped into bloom this week! You can see them - and read the whole story - here:…

Does anyone have any ideas what these might be? On the box they were described as a product of Thailand.
