Jim McKenney's message of June 25 is a wide-ranging discussion of bulb  
requirements in different areas.

I think it may be missed by anyone skipping the Ixiolirion messages,  
so I would like to draw attention to it.
I have included just a few snippets, but the whole message is well  
worth reading.
