A very popular hybrid of two unique species.  It has a bulbous base and deep green shiny tubular leaves similar to bulbosa and gets its thick, wavy leaves from the streptophylla genes.  There are many different crosses of this genetic pairing, so you can get one from three different growers and they can all look a little different.  This one is bulbosa dominant
