Betreff: [pbs] Mystery Image--South American bulb

Hi everyone,

Hans Joschko sent a number of us an image scanned from a postcard of a
group of flowering plants I believe from Chile. I have uploaded the file,
but am not going to put the picture on the Mystery Page because I don't
have permission from the photographer to use this picture. I am adding it
briefly just so people can look at it and give Hans a guess about what it
could be and then I will remove it. My guess (and I don't grow many of
these) is a Rhodophiala. It looks like am Amaryllid of some kind anyway and
the photo is really nice so I can see how it ended up on a postcard. Is
that a snake or a stick in the picture? Hopefully some of our South
American members will help him with this one or anyone who might be growing
this plant.…
