Dear Don & All,

Thanks for posting Don. We look forward to hearing about your experiences 
again, both at the San Francisco Botancial Garden and your bulb collection 
in Richmond. Did you plant the F. densepunctulata in the ground where it 
froze or was it out in a container?

It sounds like Ferraria may grow best in Florida and southern California. 
Our treasurer, Jennifer Hildebrand, put a picture on the wiki of F. 
densepunctulata on the wiki. Jen, if you are reading this, I'd be curious 
to know if you were able to grow and flower it on your light table during 
your time in Nebraska.

Doug Westfall, if you are reading, do you like Lee, have good luck growing 
and flowering these in containers in Southern California?

I suspect some of our Australian members do well with Ferraria too. I have 
some pictures from an old image list from Dirk Wallace of some stunning 
specimens of F. densepunctulata so I know he is successful.

Mary Sue
