All: Please read this email in its entirety prior to ordering so we will have no confusion and your boxes can get out to you quickly.  It will make my job a bit easier.  This is a large BX.

*This BX will be open for orders until Saturday, April 6 at 9:00 p.m. PST*

Standard rules apply for this BX:

Kindly review the list below and email me with your request(s) at
I will send a simple acknowledgement of your email.  Should you not have a response from me within a day or so, please resend.
Be sure to include your full name and current address and PLEASE advise if you have moved recently so I may note.
Bulbs are $3 each.  Some of these are only one share and in short supply.
This will be a lottery (however, if you did not receive something you were especially keen on last round, kindly advise and I will try to assure some accommodation. Also, if there is something you really are looking to receive, it helps for me to know this as well.)
You must be current in your membership and you must be up-to-date on BX/SX charges. If you are uncertain, feel free to check with Jane McGary or Arnold Trachtenberg.


Orders should be paid upon receipt through the PBS website at:
Please be sure to reference the BX number above, this helps us with accounting.
You are still free to send payment via check if that is your preference.

No orders to anywhere but the US and (sometimes) Canada can be entertained at this point.  We cannot furnish the appropriate phyto docs to other countries.

Thank you as always to our current donors.  Be advised that any and all mistakes on spelling are likely mine.  If donors see an issue with their listed item, please feel free to chime in.

21. Ornithogalumsp      Alberto Castillo provided this description when he sent the bulbs to BX 250, August 2010: "a miniature Ornithogalum species, fine foliage growing in tufts, clumping, evergreen, but definitely a winter grower. Flowers are white, minute and produced in profusion in spring. It was originally distributed as seed in an early PBS BX. Has been a charming undemanding species in full sun and gritty soil. Frost free conditions."

Notes on my contribution. If you want further information on sources, contact me directly (
52. Adenium obesum - seedlings
Amorphophallus, Arisaema are mostly small divisions, although there are a few medium sized items
83. Begonia sutherlandii - stem bulbils
84. Colocasia X Pharaoh's Mask - not happy with my conditions, offsets seasily
85. Furcrea foetida variegata (Agave?)    inflorescence bulbils, raining on the sidewalk from the huge inflorescence.
86. Gloxinia nematanthodes 'Evita'- if I had year round rain, I think it could get annoying
87. Gorgonidium intermedium - happy with cooler conditions
88. Igidia volubilis RP1 - summer grower
89. Igidia volubilis RP2 - summer grower
90. Impatiens flanaganae - winter storage best in soil (slight moisture)                                                       
Ixias are from a huge excess of my bulbs, if they are planted now, they will grow into the summer with irrigation, reverting to normal winter growth next winter.
Lachenalias don't satisfy their summer dormancy for me, so these have been dormant for 1-2 years
100. Maranta ruiziana - supposedly edible, wants warmer conditions
Oca/Oxalis tuberosa, one of the Andean tuber crops, prefers cooler, moist conditions in the summer, tubers develop after the fall equinox, harvest around Thanksgiving (USA), large scrambling plant
111. Sauromatum horsfieldii Lancelot - tiny tuber divisions
115. Sinningia tubiflora - wants warmer summers
Mashua/Tropaeolum tuberosum, one of the Andean tuber crops, prefers cooler conditions in the summer, tubers develop in the fall, harvest around Thanksgiving (USA), very vigorous vine to 15 feet on trellis
120. Typhonium rhizomatosum - thin rhizomes, will develop typical tubers over the summer
Ulluco/Ullucus tuberosus, one of the Andean tuber crops, prefers cooler conditions in the summer, tubers develop in the fall, plants are smaller and floppy, brittle stems.
123. Ullucus tuberosus wild form Ulluco - probably not truly a wild form, vigorous, with larger leaves, and impressively long droppers (3+ feet).
