If you like Bulbos, I think this little miniature is a real gem.

Marvelous - I'm not a bulbo fan, but this is one that always catches my eye. This one and medusae! Great photo too. How miniature is miniature? (one thing I can't stand about this genus is the rambling :()

Hi Calvin, How miniature? the umbrell is less than an inch across and the 'tails' about two inches long. You are right of course about their rambling nature. I have a real problem with some of mine, I started out with quite large wooden baskets, 10 ins.square only a couple of years ago and now they are full and creeping out in all directions. I could take some divisions and establish them in more baskets or on rafts but I don't have the space in my greenhouse. It looks as if I shall have to discard much of the old growths and start all over again. Peter
