I can see why you are excited. The flowers look nice, too!

Yes, a forrest would be great! Hope you have enough room for them, Nil. I've only known one person that had one very tall specimen. It was fabulous! I believe it died after it flowered, though.

yeah they are monocarps, but the flower stalk produces hundreds of bulbils for the next generation.

How long does it take from bulb to flower? They look pretty huge.
