    Unusual, bizarre, and somehow beautiful. This umbel is 9.5" across, the flowers are huge compared to most of the umbel-type bulbos. A moderately large plant, with an exceptionally long internodal distance, with growths about 6" apart. Potted in a chc mix in a shallow 12" long pan about 6" wide, and wrapping the plant back around when it gets to one end or the other. Grown warm in high light, kept moist year round.

    Wonderful species indeed. Thanks for the pointers on how to keep it and obviously make it bloom.
