Some time ago we discussed Doryanthes, a genus from Australia. Some 
pictures were added to the wiki of Doryanthes excelsa which has very large 
and tall flowers. At that time there was a question about whether or not 
this genus qualified as a geophyte. In the last few days on the AB Images 
list they have been talking about this plant. I thought some of the 
conversation was very interesting and got Jim Lykos' permission to add 
information from the discussion to our wiki page. Alberto Grossi has 
contributed some pictures of D. palmeri, another species, that he 
photographed growing in Italy. Jim says Doryanthes definitely has bulbous 
root growths. Those of you not on the AB Images list may want to read about
