Having never "Flickered" I cannot look at the link, but I have never got any seed of what I grow as flavissima. It flowers typically after a dry/wet period treatment (under glass), though not as "automatically on cue" as some of the other rain lilies.
Rhodophiala bifida in flower at the moment. 3 Pots from 3 different sources/countries, all identical in appearance and presumably the sterile form.
