|F. cirrbosa is a perennial with whorls of linear, gray-green leaves. The upper leaves have tendril-like tips. The flowers are borne on stalks. Each stalk bears singular, sometimes 2-3, broadly, bell-shaped, pendant pale green flowers, sometimes tinged with black to purple and checkered with brownish-purple. They are up to 2inches long. Native to E. Himalayas and S.W. China.
The large, skunky-smelling bulb is rodent-repellent, and is very succeptible to bulb rot if improperly stored. For best results, plant bulb on its side, at a depth 4 times the diameter of the bulb. Water moderately while in growth, but reduce to almost dry when bulb is dormant. For container plants, repot yearly in fresh soil.
Second year and older plants should be fertilized monthly with half strength fertilizer.
