Over on the Aussie bulb list they were discussing a genus of bulbs I 
had never heard of called Proiphys, previously called Eurycles. There's 
a good website about them at 
<…>. Anyway the 
pictures that were being posted were just beautiful, so of course a 
rapid case of bulblust set in. Thanks to Google and eBay I found a 
place in the U.S. that has Proiphys amboinensis for sale at a really 
good price. Apparently they are getting them from a tissue culture 
place in Thailand. They have a number of other subtropical/tropical 
bulbous plants offered as well, also at really good prices (such as 
Caladiums and Curcumas). And they sell them on eBay as well. I just got 
the bulbs and their service and the quality of the bulbs has been 
excellent, so I thought I should inform the list in case anyone is 

Here is their information if you're interested:
