    Almost about 2 years now re-bloom again after had diseased affected the leaves I nearly lost this beauty. Attempted selfing but unsuccessful maybe no luck.

    I've always found these "bird head" blooms intriguing. How big is the bloom?

    Very nice bulbo! I really love the section Hyalosema. I'd like to have this or frittillariflorum.

    one of my favorite ....nice shot, nice plant!!!
    there is a forum member (can't recall from which forum) who told me to spit on the pollina and then only do the selfing, higher chances of success. i have not tried it, and also never do any research to find out the truth of this plus i wasn't really sure if he is pulling my leg either.
