Dear Bill and Rhoda,

Thanks for you help answering my question. And I appreciated looking at Bill's pictures of his bulbs as he repotted them. I have a question about size of pot. It looked like Bill was growing some in huge black plastic bags. What is optimum for depth and size of a pot if for whatever reasons you are unable to put them in the ground? Or does it depend on the species?

Has anyone gotten Brunsvigia minor to bloom? Any tips on this one?

Since I have two very large pots of Brunsvigia grandiflora I'll try moving one of them to my shelter if I can find space and just compare the results. It may be a little late in the season to do it she says considering how much they have been rained on already. And I like the idea of starting watering earlier and giving them some water all summer. Since they seem to be growing well in their turned around circumstances maybe they have adapted.

If any of you in Southern California have contacts with the Huntington I'd love to know where these came from and how they are treated there.
