  dactylifer bulbil (was bulbifer bulb)

Hi George,

I've grown a number of Am. dactylifer and I've never had one produce a
bulbil. This plant produces lots of very small offsets at the top of the
tuber which must be left attached whereupon next season some of them
will form new plants. If your dactylifer produced a bulbil then I think
your plant is misidentified.

Ken,

Thanks for the info. I will check the correct ID of my "dactylifer".

Hi George,

I agree with Ken that true dactylifer has no foliar bulbils. There is at
least one species from Panay (as yet not flowered and thus unidentified)
that has a central foliar bulbil and I wouldn't be surprised if one or two
more Philippine species have it. One small species from Cebu also develops
bulbils.

Cheerio,
Wilbert
