Well... I was trying to wait for someone else to start May, but no luck.

Here's- I believe I bought these as Albuca Namaquanensis.

I'll add flowering pics in the coming days.

I already posted ixia Paniculata, but wanted to share its great staying power (as species Ixia go), and full flower display. It's not the flashiest Ixia, but I really enjoy them.
Mystery Bulbs / Moraea Iridioides?
April 11, 2024, 10:56:20 AM
I ordered seed of what was named Moraea Iridioides, and what was pictured (attached) that appears to be M. Villosa. Wondering if anyone can speak to this name, origin, etc., or is it a complete farce. I'm including a picture of the seed in case anyone wants to speak to what the seed might appear to be, the seed group is a touch bigger than a quarter. I did find on the web a few people posting Dietes Iridioides as Moraea Iridioides, so I hope I didn't waste time and $ bothering with that...

I believe this is my first flowering for these Albuca Namaquensis.

I was Generously gifted some mystery bulbs from a long time aficionados garden. Many of them have been leafing out for a bit now, and the first flowers are appearing. Some I feel I can speculate on the genus based on the foliage, but far more I have no clue about.
Here are some flowers I do not recognize...
Appreciate any help!

Mystery Bulbs / Cabo Mx bulb ID ?
March 07, 2024, 09:22:33 AM
Saw these at our Zoetry resort property grounds. They appear to be some sort of bulb (imho), Crinum looking-ish plants. There were two different looking versions. One all green, a bit more robust, with nicer flowers. The other which there were more of have some green but are more purple-ish with fading from strong purple to weak and muddy color, and the flowers not as nice as the green specimens. Flowers were sweetly scented!
Any thoughts, solid ID's, or guesses?

Mystery Bulbs / New (previous Rodophiala) ID mystery…
December 31, 2023, 04:49:09 PM
So it appears I posted the wrong flower pic for the plant I'm trying to ID. I discovered my mistake when looking up Rodophiala, seeing that the seeds do not match at all! I looked for pics of the flowers, but have not yet found them. In any event, here I'll post pics of current fresh germinating seed and current foliage.
TIA for any help ID'ing the genus.
And...Happy New Year !

Mystery Bulbs / Babiana ID help

Any Babiana Wizards out there???
I thought I was told this was B. Angustifolia when I acquired it. Then I wondered, and for a time thought it was Inclinata. But now I'm just not sure...

Any help...?

PBS Members Affairs / Help...

Hi, new member here. I don't know how or where to use, get involved, view, which platforms, post, or how to know when bulbs/seed will be offered!?! I have freshly collected seed of a few species from my garden that I was hoping to share too. One of the main reasons I joined was to have opportunities to acquire new genera/species, and I have no idea how that works either. If there was a tutorial somewhere on how to use the key aspects of your membership, that would be great.
