    Question Bulb. medusae

    I recently acquired one of these. Does anyone have any hints as to its special needs? Couldn't resist when I saw the flowers! It is not flowering at this time but is supposed to be BS.

    I got one several months ago. I am growing it in a basket in bright light. It has put out a new growth and I expect it to bloom from that growth. (At least that is my plan... heh)

    Cheers,

    Mine is also in a basket. I hope I have it in bright enough light.

    I have mine on driftwood. It's on the west end of the greenhouse and gets some direct late afternoon light. It tends to be more of a fall bloomer.

    I grew mine under 40 watt flourescent lights and it bloomed faithly. I use the past tense because I gave it away to make room for more I have not bloomed....
