    Default Bulb. sumatranum 'A-doribil' x Bulb. vietchianum 'A-doribil'

    This is my first Bulb.that I have ever purchased. The vendor was telling me that this one grows like a weed. Requires low light, they grow these plants under the benches in their greenhouses. I will be posting else where to get information on the proper culture on this one. The fragrance on this one isn't bad, not something that I really want to smell a lot. It smells like some type of medicinal antiseptic? Two of the leaves are showing a little bug chewing damage.The vendor was asking $12.00, but gave it to me for 10. Three plants $40.00, A very good day! Have Fun, Rich

    I guess I need to do a internet search before posting any names of plants. This time the spelling on the tag is not correct? Should be bulb. sumatranum 'A-doribil' AM/AOS X Bulb. veitchianum 'A-doribil' CHM-HC/AOS ????

    Well after going any many sites and looking at photos. It looks likes it is Bulb.Jim McGoogan. I didn't know that there are so many that look very much the same? The vendor that I purchased this plant is from the same area in FL. as that grower/hybridizer who came up with this cross. Thanks, Rich
