Did I say I now live in Florida? I know nothing about growing tropical plants. But the bulb seemed healthy so I hid it behind a shady palm, near a fence, and promptly forgot about it. Till about a month ago. It was well on its way to having six blooms. I admired it often.
Then a Superhero spied it.
He karate-chopped the flower off. And gave it to me. Amazingly, it survived in a vase.
And continued to open its blooms for me to enjoy.
(Next to another Thing I love.)
I left the bulb, flowerless and sad, in its pot outside. Guess what happened?
Another blossom! And the flowers are still opening!
I hope it will survive another season.
I intend to put it in the ground, away from the fearless arm of Superhero.
