The world's smallest flowering bulb! On our trip to South Africa in 2005 we saw this fun little bulbous plant in habitat. It grew in a layer of green moss on large boulders, in the shade of trees. The 2 inch tall, chive-like foliage emerged above the moss-like fine green hairs. This tiny bulb, which at maturity reaches thumbnail size, produces tiny flowers that are about the size of a fly's hiney so if show is the driving requirement behind your plant purchases then this plant is not for you. However if novelty is a factor in your plant buying decisions then consider this unique bulb. Tips: Should be grown in shallow containers in organicaly rich, well drained potting media.
