Photo by Kelly Irvin ><http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/…>. > > * http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/… Kelly, I have seedlings of the same BX offering coming along but outside rather than in under lights. How big were the leaves on your plant when last seen prior to flowering (I assume it went dormant prior to flowering, or is it evergreen?). It is really great to see a picture of it, and it will be interesting to see what mine look like when they flower. Do all the flowers look like they will be the same colour, or is there variation? I wonder how long mine will take to get to flowering size in my climate..... I think it'll be a while yet given how small the leaves still are <grin>. Great to see the pic. Cheers.
