Hi Mary Sue - thanks so much for all this info, the below seems to match
pretty well - I have just been out and carefully emptied out one pot and
opened up the corm for a photo, link below.  Is this what's called a
'woody' tunic?All the tepals are pretty much the same length in cross view,
and I'd call their shape lanceolate rather than ovate but I'm not very
experienced with these terms.    Think I'm still leaning to watsonius, just
because the leaves aren't very terete, but still open.  Terry
