I saw your note about having several native Eucharis species. I was wondering if you would be able to swap these with me? I'm in Massachusetts (USA) - Let me know. I'm always looking for new swapping friends! Thanks, Jude

Several species of Eucharis are native here, and all the ones I know grow in 

open forest understory, with very high humidity. The ones that manage to bloom 

are usually near treefalls or cliff edges and get more light than average. They 

are usually in good soil, with many roots near the surface to catch nutrients 

from the leaf litter. The soil stays generally moist but is always well-drained; 

in some areas they may experience drier periods for a few weeks. Most species 

grow in hot lowlands and lower foothill forests, where nights probably rarely 

drop below 60 degrees F.

They grow well from fresh seeds and are generally not self-fertile. Their local 

name is "cebolla del monte" -- "forest onion".
