Should Ferraria crispa be flowering at this time? i wonder if my bulbs are big enough to flower .. they stink less than 1 cm ..

and my Massonia: I wait for them to germinate. :D

there are so many happy surprises with African bulbs..

Ferraria crispa should flower a full month to two after Ferraria ferrariola.

Sometimes it is easy , sometimes it is not. Probably depends on the seed viability. Needs very very well drained conditions. Mine are in 80-90% pumice

Lachenalia duo.

On the left is L. quadricolor

On the right could be L. luteola, or L. callista

Confirmation would be appreciated

I was given this as Massonia pustulata but the flowers don’t look right.  Massonia longipes looks more likely.  Your thoughts.
