That is known as 'Red Hot Poker', 'Torch Lily', and other common names. I don't know the exact variety, but the genus is Knipfophia. :)

This is kind of strange because I was just coming onto the site to tell you that I counted the "pokers" on my plant today and there were 27.

I just planted some of these seeds. Does anyone know about starting them from seed? They are on my window right now and about a week or so old, above the soi/ :roll:
I have some tomato plants I have started from seed and now they are too wet and I have repotted them. I gave them some asprin, for root growth and I wonder if they are going to die. They were in hot wet pots in the sun.
