    I have no idea...so I went to do a Google search and it doesn't come close, but then again I'm not sure how the "flower" will change as it blooms...can't confirm, but I don't think it is a bulb...it's still in the pot as I don't know the requirements it needs...but BLOODY HELL...you just showed me my next Purchase...:eek: ...OK maybe not PINK as they basically look exactly as my Pink ANTHURIUMS..:p
