What species takes the longest to flower from seed?

So many environmental factors go into how fast a bulb goes from seed to 
flower. A lot of talented growers on this list speed up the process. We 
visited Harry Hay in the UK in 2004 and we saw Pseudogaltonia clavata in 
flower. Harry said it weighed over a kilo and took 21 years from seed to 
flower. He obviously had a lot of patience. Nhu is growing this same 
species. Perhaps it will flower sooner for him.
