You have changed my perception of mushrooms :-( Eating them will remind me of tadpoles now.

Anyway, ginger lily is beautiful whether it is edible or not...it is a different thing. BTW, one petal won't take a human being to the next world even if it were a toxic plant :-)

Sir they some time initially to adapt even upto 2 years then start blooming on a consistent basis. All they require is a moist soil in a location having sunlight/shade. Just two years ago i shifted them to a newer location and they didn't bloom in the first year and so i think they resent being moved.
