The bulb produced 2 scapes, so I though I'd post a follow up. I hope I'll see 6 blooms / scape next year.
I love the spidery look of the cybisters! Very nice Chico, Pat! Lots of very cool petals!
Chico is one of my favs and closest to the species. cybister, this is a nice one, Pat!

Very nice! I have Chico for the first time this year,keeping fingers crossed it's that nice. Lora
Pat, Chico is beautiful.
I still have my fingers crossed for the rest of your bulbs that endured the hard freeze.
Thanks y'all for the nice comments. Today I'll be transplanting H. papilios into a 24 x 24 x24 redwood box in Orchid Mix. We'll see how it goes.
