Thank you, you are so clever.  As you can see my mind is a bit slow these
days.  I have not been at my best but am recovering and hope to learn a bit
more about plants and flowers.  If you recall I started put as a novice and
eventually grew some Oxalis plants.  I can finally tell the difference
between leaf and a bulb.
Thanks again

Dear Christine,
	Go to your local library and request the book
	' Brugmansia and Datura: Angel's Trumpets and Thorn Apples' 
by  U Preissel & H Preissel  for inter-library loan. It is the 
'bible' on the topic.

	See this link for more info on this book:…

>  One more question, why are these plants so expensive?

	You might be looking at the wrong source. Many are well under 
$10 each and well worth it.
