    How many did you get? I like it for the same reason why I like maculata, the lip.

    I only got one, but my friend got a few. I'm going over to his greenhouse tomorrow, I'll see if he'll let one go.

    Very nice, Bill!

    According to this:
    Pleione Taxonomy - The Pleione Website
    all three monographs seem to consider them separate species. Did they get synonymized recently? I don't know much about Pleione (and I just ordered a couple books), so I'm curious.

    Do you keep it completely dry at this stage (until the leaves start to expand)?

    They are not synonyms, my plant was just mislabeled. I keep all my Pleiones outside year round, so they tend to not dry out. A friend of mine unpots his as bare bulbs for the winter and only repots when new growth starts.

    Hello Kelly, that would be great if tyou could change the title. I can't figure out how to do that on my phone app.

    Do you think you could grow them in the ground up in Eureka?

    Yeah. A friend of mine grows them on an old spruce stump on the Oregon coast. I just haven't found the spot to commit to growing them out of pot. I grow them in pot outside year round.
