Dear Mary Sue:

The leaves are from the previous seasons growth which started sometime in mid summer. It is rather late here, but tomorrow I am going back to the wikki to have a look at Veltheimia bractea as per Chad's speculation.

Charging batteries for the digital camera and I will do my best to get some clear shots of the creature. Software willing and the creek don't rise (I am quite unskilled at this), pics will be forthcoming.

Never leave home without your notes.


>Dear Rand,
>I'm sure we all would love to see the leaves of the plant you are talking about. Most Lachenalias do not like frost and there is only one species I grow that does not go completely dormant in the summer. Lachenalias even grow new roots every year. When you said "It still has two from last year, splitting up the middle as the bulb expands" when last year are you talking about?
>Can you take a picture of this to add to the wiki?
