This one opened yesterday...I didn't notice the bud earlier and was digging around looking for whatever had died in the iceplant. It is about 14" long and smells HORRID. Thanks Azuleja D))

Lol, yeah exactly "what died?" I have a whole bed of this now but the bloom spikes haven't gone up yet. We're in for a real treat this year. :?

And so it begins. In appreciation for being divided in the fall, I've been rewarded with 9 bloom stalks this year.

Cool! No fruits here...are the corms you sent me all the same clone? Are they self-fertile and I'm just unlucky?

Yes, your corms came from these same plants, and all the plants are probably the same clone. Not sure why yours didn't fruit though.
