Does that unguicularis in your plant room (now blooming) live in a

Unguicularis takes to potted culture very well. It will soon fill a pot
rather quickly(they travel somewhat, just like the beardeds) and it is
not fussy about soil. I use a mixture of loamy soil(70), peat moss(20)
and perlite(10). I have also used ordinary packaged potting soil. I've
had many pots blooming in the house over the winter with their heavenly
scent of hyacinths. They will benefit by a vacation outside during the
Superstition Iris Gardens
