Any ideas? > Dear Shirley, Since no one else has replied, let me offer a suggestion. Share bulbils with close friends to see if this is a genetic change. If new plants all show this large size, you may have a desirable new variety. These may simply be tetraploids, but if there are other changes involved* you may have some new bee produced hybrid. So first thing is try spreading this around and see if it repeats. Of course if there really a lot of bulbils share with PBS and ask for feed back. Sounds interesting. Best Jim W. * Other changes may be in foliage width, color, venation etc or flower size, number, anatomy etc.
