When I first got it I didn't know if it was finished blooming , and on it's way out, or just starting to bloom. I had never seen a bulbo in real life. I was pleasantly surprised.

I tried to get a shot from the bottom up. After many, many tries....in very awkward positions, I fail to get one worth saving. I did learn one thing, I have a lot of respect for others who get such great photos. I could never make a living being a photographer. I will have to be content just growing them instead.

That is quite nice. But I can't picture getting pollen from a medusae, or using it as a pod parent. Although the flower cluster is fairly big, the pollen must be tiny!
