Ixia, big box store

I bought a box of hybrid Ixia bulbs at a big box store 2 weeks ago.  I
decided to try them indoors in my plant room since they only grow a few
inches tall.  I potted them up in a clear plastic pot, watered them in, and
a week later they were bursting up through the soil two inches tall
already... and the root systems were MASSIVE, clearly visible through the
transparent pot.

I've never grown Ixia before, but I'm excited at how quickly these broke
dormancy & how vigorously they're growing.  So I went back and got a box of
Tigridia bulbs, too.  :-)

Ixia have been offered occasionally in the BX but I never considered trying
them until my impulse buy at the store.
