Question and pics
It may sound kinda strange... If I know what a bulb looks like, and I want it to increase in size ASAP would it help to cut the scape off as soon as it emerges from the bulb? My thinking is: it would just save all that energy.
The first pic is of an unidentified plant. A friend brought me the bulb from a Bangkok marketplace.
This is a cross between 'Exotica' and 'Yellow Pioneer'. Well, I can see why yellows are hard to produce.
This is a cross between H. papilio and H. johnsonii. Of this seed batch this appears to have carried the johnsonii genes to the greatest extent. I provide no protection to this cross during the winter. True, we are in the south but we did have a couple light snows, and a min. temp of 22F with below freezing temp for 40hrs.
