Notes:

Friends in Venice, Fla. area have this bulb/tuber and don’t know what it is. I was at a loss for an answer to give them also. Don’t think it is an elephant ear. Does anyone else have an idea? They said it has a cucumber type smell to it.

    Thanks, Jake, they do look identical. My friend will love to know that he has a ground orchid at his new home.

    This might be Drimiopsis maculata, a scilla from Natal, South Africa.
