    One of my favorites. But the plant is too big for my growing space.

    Super fun plant!
    I used to have one back in the day but don't recall what led to its demise.
    I'll have to keep an eye out for one because I know they are warm growers so I should be able to grow it here.

    Hey Jack. Since Medusa was a woman, it's Bulbo. medusae.

    I knew that middle-school Latin would come in handy someday...

    Leigh if you are still in the Keys you should have no problem.
