    I have three examples of this species in my collection. Two of them flower on bulbs 6-8 inches high. I had never seen larger, until I spotted this example with a bulb much bigger. I was not sure if that was a freak, but snapped it up anyway, and as you can see it always produces these big bulbs now. Rather more flowers than on the normal size, but again, not opening too well.
    It does seem to suffer when flowering - rather shrivelled bulbs, but make them up again when new roots and a new shoot start into life... fingers crossed !
