A Chinese species that has done well in cultivation and is now fairly widely available.
Mine is still a single bulb, establishing in the pot.

I was a little suspicious about the shape of the flower of my first plant, so I bought another which is distinctly different. The species comes from Yunnan in China where it grows at around 2,700m asl as a terrestrial among woodland. It is supposed to need a drier winter rest than other species.
