Gerd, if I knew what the problem was, I would fix it. The bulbs got smaller and stopped flowering. I tried in different conditions, but it doesn't seem to help. I sent some back to Spain last year as I did not want to kill them all, but the few I have left are just emerging. I do have hybrid seedlings from them though. I am really happy to see they are doing well somewhere else, as I know how rare and precious they are.

Thank you Anne. Your reply reminds me to be more carefully with this species. Indeed they were slightly smaller here than a year before, so I have to prevent that this will continue.

Things are coming into flower so quickly, it's hard to keep up with the photography.

My pot grown Cyclamineus have begun to open this week. They still take my breath away way more than any other Narcissus.

That’s a terrifying statistic! And probably even fewer in cultivation?!  :-\

Acis tingitana, from the same area, is also very located and with <50 mature individuals in the wild. Hopefully, it is now quite common in cultivation, at least in collection.

Ivain - would you please let me know the citation for the scarcity mentioned above.

Gerd, This is in Conservation assessments and Red Listing of the endemic Moroccan flora (monocotyledons): Red Listing of the Moroccan Flora by Rankou et al. 2015. There's distribution map for the moroccan endemic monocotyledones.

Nice pot of Acis, mine is growing and I hope to get seeds soon with my seedlings from the SRGC Seedex.
