    Most unusual and very different for a Bulbo, Tom. Does the flower open more than this? About how large is the flower and the plant?

    The flower is fully open. 2" long flower, individual growth is about 3", 1" gap between the pbulbs.

    That is nice! Does it have a fragrance? We have a similar one that was moved out of the bulbo classification. Cannot think of the name of it this morning though.... (monday... hehe)

    Cheers,

    what a cool bulbo with striking colors!

    also thought it looks like a "hornbill".

    Thanks!

    No fragrance, Bruce.
