    I have it up in a relatively bright and windy spot, so I added moss so it wouldn't dry out in a couple of hours. I water every day year-round. Like a lot of bulbos it doesn't seem to make much effort to attach to the mount. I've weaved it back amongst the roots otherwise some parts would be hanging way out in mid-air.

    Hi pcolman,

    Based on your original post, I did also search out and get one. Your recent photos inspire me even more!

    Note:—The swollen and sterile ovary of the apical flower develops well before anthesis of the other flowers. It is distinguishable even in young inflorescences. It swings in the smallest draft of wind; how this relates to the pollination of the species needs investigation.
