    Congratulations, Sue! I wouldn't be surprised if this weren't your first, but to us armchair growers it's a great honor! May we touch the hem of your watering smock?

    Definitely, Bulbo Vlad! In my humble, pink-fanged, ever-parched, crimson-stained opinion.

    Ya know...

    I've taken another long look at the blooms. I think Masd's are more Vladish. These flowers remind me much more of a group (an oxymoron in nature) of predacious diving water beetles: Bulb. Dytiscidae.

    Just letting you know that the decision has been made. I'm naming it for my friend Ellen. I had asked some offline friends for advice, and she jokingly suggested I name it for her, so I am. The hybrid name will include her last name, but I'm not putting it here so that it doesn't show up in a google search. She's getting married soon, and I plan on presenting the plant, and a printout of its rhs 'new hybrid name' listing to her as a gift, so I want it to be a surprise.

    I was sorely tempted by "Bulb. Dytiscidae", which would be absolutely perfect, and is a great idea, but naming it for Ellen is just too much fun for me to pass on.

    If any of you have one of these guys from trading with me in the past, just PM me and I'll tell you the full name.

    Thanks to all of you for your help! I'll be keeping some of these grex names in mind for when I have the opportunity to name my own hybrid. Especially "Hurt Your Dog" and "Mem. H.G. Wells," both great ideas.

    Naming it for your friend Ellen, who's about to get married...

    The penultimate Valentine's Day post!

    Sue, you gushy romantic!

    Well if you decide to go the more macabre route [vamps & such] you could also go with Bulb. Cthulhu after the rather warped visions of
    HP Lovecraft


    Well done. I'm still trying to bloom a different bulbo I got from you in trade a few years back .... though on the plus side it hasn't died LOL
