Indeed they are. But, on the basis of my experience, the bulbs they send out are tiny - probably one year seedlings. So, one needs to treat them with great care if they are to survive.  Seeds may be a better bet.

Note:

We are not very sure concerning N. deficiens as the Herbarium sheet is very bad. Some taxonomist think N. deficiens = N. miniatus and N. obsoletus = N. elegans.

But other taxonomist think N. obsoletus = N. deficiens, maintaining the name N. elegans.

The seeds I have are of N. deficiens (= N. miniatus) 

I think I have few seeds of N. obsoletus (= N. elegans)
