Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase these bulbs? I just bought this houseplant yesterday at Walmart and it went right back today....it was FULL of spider mites!!

LUCKY YOU ! I JUST WENT TO THE PHILLY FLOWER SHOW YESTRDAY WHERE I SAW TWO VARIETIES AND MADE ME IMMEDIATELY WANT TO BUT SOME. I JUST ORDERED THREE TYPES FROM BRENTANDBECKYSBULBS.COM. THEY ARE THE CHEAPEST I HAVE SEN AT FIVE FOR SIX. ALSO IF YOU BUY AND PAY BY THE FIFTEENTH OF MARCH, YOU GET 10 % OFF. IF YOU SEARCH FOR LACHENALIA, YOU WILL FIND OTHER SITES WHICH I DIDN'T NOTE WHEN I FOUND THE CHEAPEST SITE. ONE PROBLEM IS, THO' MANY SITES WILL NOT TAKE ORDERS TIL LATER IN THE YEAR-THE DORMANCY THING YOU KNOW,

Silverhill Seeds in South Africa offers about 15 species. They will take 2-3 years to flower from seed; but you will have access to many which are quite rare.

Here is a link that might be useful: Silverhill Seeds
