Exposed glossy bulbs offset to form mounds topped by short waxy leaves and occassional shy white nodding trumpet flowers soon fading to a pale pink with faint green tips. Beautiful when treated as a foliage potplant. Remember, a chill or a severe drought cause a mini-dormancy, practiced by some growers who feel that the bulbs are more likely to produce their shy blossoms after re-emerging from such an "artificial" dormancy.
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
