Bulb Identifcation

Question from Cate Brown

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi,
I have a large number of bulbs that I dug up last year and didn't label then as to what they were. I can't find pictures of plants with their actual bulb to help me try and identify them. Do you know where I can find anything like this on the Internet. Many thank,

Identify my plant please

Comment from Helen Ross

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi. I rescued this plant from an office about 3 years ago. It is flowering now, but this is only the second time it has done so in those 3 years. The leaves are velvety and tend to go white/yellow and fall off a lot ( this may be down to overwatering, I'm being less generous now). It sends out tendrils but I'm not sure if it wants to climb up, or just spread out. There is no fragrance from the flowers.
