Had another first bloom, Tigridia phillippiana, native to Chile. Interesting flower. It does look somewhat like the flower listed on the wiki as “Tigridia unknown South-American species from Lima”. Not sure if it was worth waiting 6 years to see from seed. But since it doesn’t really require any special care in my climate, it just grew on its own and finally flowered. Each flower lasts a day.
