    Default Onc. Tsiku Maguerite

    I'm FINALLY posting this picture. This is not the first time this one has bloomed, but it's the first time it has put more than one spike per p-bulb (Two p-bulbs have two spikes each!) The spikes kind of took their turns, blooming one at a time. It's in a 3.5 in pot and still has room to grow. Not nearly as impressive as Ron's Twinkle, but I'm pretty happy with it.

    Speaking of Twinkle, this is a cross between Twinkle and ornithorhychum. I can't see much difference between this one and Twinkle, though, besides the center being darker on Twinkle. Anyone notice any other differences?

    Very similar to Twinkle but a beauty in her on right! Very nice plant and lovely blooms.

    Looks a bit more purplish that Twinkle and the blooms slightly larger?
