- Add Note: Rick Martin (2012-05-31) - Never flowered, at first thought Puya or Griega?

- Identification (9862): Geoff Lawn (2012-05-31) =Fascicularia bicolor ?
- Needs extended very cold season to trigger flowering regularly--from coastal southern Chile (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Add Note (9862): Rick Martin (2012-05-31) - Geoff, the Fascicularia bicolor I have is distinctly different, leaves more slender and symetrical in form. I doubt it is F. bicolor
Cold triggering could account for its inability to flower.
- Add Note (9863): Eric Gouda (2012-05-31) - Looks like Fascicularia bicolor to me too. We do have several different looking clones. They only flower when in full ground, not in pot and better if outside in summer (and or winter) (Sent: email@example.com)
- Add Note (9863): Rick Martin (2012-05-31) - I was unaware there were clones of this species, I must say I'm begining to see the probability...I dare say if Geoff and Eric are in agreement, Fasciculata must be correct. Your help appreciated.
