Comments: I find these easy to grow, and for each tuber have gotten 5-8 new tubers each year. Dormancy is critical, and is keeping the plants wet while in growth.
Donor's culture notes: This is a terrestrial species native to Eastern Australia, where it grows in well drained, humus rich soil in open forests. The habitat is cool and moist during the winter growing season. The plants bloom in late winter/early spring, then die back to underground tubers during the hot summer months. I grow these shady, outdoors in Los Angeles, CA in shallow clay pots with organic potting soil with 10% sand added. I unpot the tubers in August and directly replant them about 1" deep in new pots and fresh mix. Single tubers can be grown in a 2" pot, but a mass grouping looks better.
Unique ID: MC4622
(this will not change even if any part of the name should change)
