The only hint that I can offer re: the tubers sold by Mr. Home at the
Fairchild show is that one set was Pycnospatha sp., these tubers were very
'flat', lighter colored and disc-like, a couple were actually blooming.
All the others were a grab-bag of take-a-chance plants as regards species, I
suggested to several friends that they purchase some of the elongate tubers,
as these had produced some nice vars. of Pseudodracontium in past years.
(shiny-smooth, well-marked petioles.)
Good luck,
