Nice, one of my favorite easy to grow species. I see it has hit its peak height.

Yes, very short...
Also blooming today, Super Tsing. I don't know where I got the seed. planted seed on 10-30-09, it said M OP on the label. I asked Rick if he sent the seed, but he said he didn't. I planted the seeds outdoors on that date and I have 4 plants. (NO BAGGY SYSTEM) I forgot about them and the snails got to the flowers. Only one bloomed so far.

Rather unusual to have the outer three petals colored... very nice.

Has the same bulbs been blooming repeatedly, or have new ones in the bunch replaced the older ones? It is common for this variety of formosanum to act as a monocarp, but not always.

There are four (4) buds/blooms in this container. Last year only 3 bloomed. All should bloom this year. Been lucky, same four (4) as far as I can remember. Here are the photos from 2011.
