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.
