This species bloomed the other day. Its smaller than listed below, but its the first time it bloomed. It has three (3) stems coming out of the container.

Information from McClure & Zimmerman catalog
"Native to the Himalayas, this late flowering species bears up to 4 exceptionally fragrant, outward-facing slender white trumpets with a suggestion of green. Each petal is 6 to 12 inces long resulting in blooms of spectacular size. A real character, this plant produces stem bulbils underground ad tends to wander, creating some surprises when the stem often comes up some distance from where the bulb was planted."

Do not fertilizes

Very nice!
Hopefully, you'll have some more little bulblets from the wandering stem. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if it wandered much less, growing in a pot. The species is said to be short lived.

I decided to repot my L. wallichianum. I found 8 small bulbs, 1 larger and several (5) bulblets on the stem.

Tell me. If I peel some of the leaves from a bulb, how long would it take to develop a bulb?

Are you talking about scaling? You separate a few scales from a bulb, then you place them in sand or soil half way deep. Keep moist and they will in most case develop small bulbs that will look like its parent. I place a clear baggy over the container to make a small green house.

Well, for one that supposed to be short lived, it certainly lives on by multiplying! You've got enough there to keep you busy for a while Thumbs up Acorn Hurray! Hurray!

I went there are read a bunch. Boy was I naive, but I am going to give it a go. I have two Tiramasu bulbs so I am willing to dig one for the first try. I only want to see if I can do it, and also to share with one or two friends here and at DG. Thanks so much for the point in the right direction.

Mary, I recommend doing something small-scale (no pun intended) for your first time. Especially with an expensive bulb like Tiramasu. Depending on the bulb size I would take 3-4 healthy scales to try first.

That's what I was thinking. No point risking an entire bulb. Thanks.

I repotted the above bulbs. They look like they are coming up and a few have insect damage. Need to put some bait out.
