Single, fleshy bulb about the size of a large marble, with two strap-like, lanceolate leave.
The soil medium should be fairly well drained and consist of about half coarse, washed sand and half finely sieved compost. Plants should be kept in a sunny position and will grow very happily outside during the winter months providing it doesn't drop below freezing. In order to keep the leaves green when they come into flower, watering should be maintained until flowering time.
|Minimum winter temperature||0 ºC to 10 ºC|
