but no roots. I know cybisters are lazy when it comes to growing roots, but with this one I had noticed somebody had chipped off quite a bit of the basal plate and wonder if the bulb would grow roots later on the side of the basal plate. I have taken it out of the soil to investigate if the cause is red blotch or another disease,,,but it seems ok. I will wait another 2-3 weeks till the seeds are ready and replant the bulb then or use it for chipping -- don't know yet.

Thank you for showing the seed pods on the plant. I didn't know they were so small.


The information on the roots helped me. I always had hard time growing them.
I am interested in species. Do you grow them?

My friend also bought one of those mandoniis. How sure can one be if it is REALLY a mandonii??? I received my friend's mandonii bulb and it looked like a CRINUM bulb infested with STAG. YIkes!!!

I do not grow crinums but doesn't it look like one????

Now $60-$70 for this bulb might sound cheap compared to how much others are selling it. But take a look at what's inside it!!! Gezzzzzzzz...
