Thankyou Alessandro,
 I bought it from Bob Brown - Cotswold Garden Plants five years ago. He had two kinds but when I got home I discoverd I had only bought the one. ::) :-[ ::) :'( The other one was black. it has been muchhappier growing in the ground. I am hoping to get T bivalve this year :D.
Your Bessera is lovely, I did not know it came in purple, I tried to grow it once but it never came up :-\

Alessandro,

I'd heard of the purple form of Bessera, but don't recall ever seeing a pic of it.  Thank you so much.  It's an excellent colour, isn't it!!  :o

Wow.
Cheers.

The first Rhodophiala in flower today. It came as Rhodophiala elwesii (actually Hippeastrum elwesii) from Harry Jans ex Goteborg BG.

Back to the greenhouse, I just spotted an aphid in the photo.
