I uploaded a few photos to the wiki. In particular, I have a question 
regarding the bulbs I purchased that are supposed to be Phycella.

Phycella sp.. I got these as Mixed Phycella from a Dutch Bulbs offering 
a year ago, and this one finally bloomed this year. They looked very 
similar to large Cyrtanthus, although I can see differences in the 
morphology of the flower. They didn't look like small Hippeastrums to 
me. Are these really Phycella, and if so, which species?…

Eleutherine bulbosa, from Argentina via Plant Delights Nursery. Flowers 
3 cm in diameter open in the evening and are scented, but are 
completely shriveled by morning.…

I also added some extra photos of the following:
Calydorea coelestina…

A supposed hybrid of Cyrtanthus elatus…

And some more photos of Griffinia liboniana. I can't get enough of 
looking at these.…
