    You will find that Bulbo rothschildianum is not a stinky one...it smells like fresh cut grass

    Zain, very nice!!....it bloomed earlier for you this year...you posted this one in May 2013...Being you grow outdoors, the "fragrance" should not be an issue. Do you find that it get's fertilized outdoors?

    looks quite big like virescens or binnendijkii?
    You are right almost similar the density of the flowers made everything huge.

    Thanks Ron so far none of them get fertilized despite many flies kept coming over and over could be my area is not conducive to support this process.
