Mystery Bulb

HCP20December 1, 2012

I recently went to Amsterdam and visited the flower market where I saw a bulb that was advertised as needing no water or soil. I bought one and sure enough it's growing, even though it's just sat on the table and I've done nothing to it.
The only thing is, I have no idea what it is! I've attached a picture, can anyone help me with this?

Hi there,
I got one some years ago as a gift, and it really flowerd just after sitting there without any water& soil.

but
how sharp is your scent?

When I entered the room after the bulb had started flowering in the night it made me really gag and my first thought was were the cadaver might be hidden.

so, it`quite an experience, but I wouldn`t keep it in the living room.

Well then, have fun with it, bye, Lin
