    Default Bulbo purpureorachis spike

    I got this yesterday as a gift. I've wanted one for years but could never manage to find one that was affordable. My parents got it for me. I had just used up my expendable cash when I came across the first affordable offer I'd seen! It's a small division, but I wouldn't have the opportunity to grow it otherwise.
