    Default Bulbo sprucei

    This Bulbo was in another Bulbo growers collection and he wasn't able to get it to bloom. I only purchased it off of him this past April, so I hate to claim the blooming rights. I had checked with him regarding his culture and he noted he tried many different cultures. The only thing I saw that he didn't do was run it dry. So, I decided to try that and voila...12 spikes so far. I think the flowers may open more and if they do I will update this post.

    Oh Ron, don't tell him. LOL. Gosh, that is amazing! 12 spikes in just over two months of growing. Great work!

    Cheers,

    I did tell him and let him know that I feel if he just kept it longer it would have bloomed for him. I offered to sell part of it back to him if he wants.
