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 :()

I love this one! Great photo. If I ever start having any luck with bulbos, this one will go on my wish list.

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
