    Smile My First Bulbo Bloom

    I had never bloomed a Bulbo before (or tried for that matter) but now I have.

    It is an unnamed hybrid- Bulbo gracillinum x Bulbo medusae. I bought it last October at the end of its blooming cycle so I am not sure if this is fully open or not. The spike emerged off a pb I wasn't expecting to bloom. The next new growth is visible. I'm still hoping my Bulbo frostii will bloom.

    It looks like a crazy-wild creature. I thought you didn't like bulbos.
