It looks a great deal like a Crinum bulb.
to me , also like Hymenocallis.
Neat link moon! Would Take me some guts and extra bulbs before I'd try that kind of surgery.
Hi Sally. That method, though scary, works very well. We moved an old stand of Crinums a few years back and they were so congested that some bulbs got whacked with the shovel....most of them did just fine...only the ones that got small pieces of the upper part did not take.
I suggested Crinum because of the size of the bulb in the second picture. My Hymenocallis bulbs are smaller and have a much darker "skin"
Thanks for the help ...when have leaves put back
This method scary as says themoonhowl, but put into practice.
Thanks for the link, themoonhowl
You are most welcome.
Take a look at this post here in plant ID
it does look like a HUGE bulb. My Hymenoc. are sure not that big . Good point!
