    Twinkle is one of those over-achieving weeds that should be in every collection, especially since it is easy to find space for and you can probably get it in your favorite color. This bright yellow looks especially good.

    They are great! I had three but lost them all to the evil Oncidium rash. Have not seen any available since.

    Twinkle is only easy when grown cool (or at least with cool nights). In lowland tropics, the bulbs get progressively smaller and the buds do not form well on the spikes.
