Possibly Primula auricula from first viewing?

It looks like that to me, cliff..... so , Pat, at least if it's a true P. auricula the flowers will be yellow, like the Albuca!!  ;D ;D ;) That's kinda close on one count, eh?!  ::) ;D

Looks like Primula auricula to me too. You'll like it Pat, grow 'em on.

Uhm I might need some cultural requirements now as I have a feeling that Primulas would not be exactly happy in our conditions.

Pat,

They're looking pretty happy where they are by the looks of it.  Why change anything if you've grown them to this stage?  You've already done far better than me in the auricula germination stakes.  :'(
Cheers.
