    Bulbs are planted in the dirt to grow tulips and daffodils.

    As a general rule, a relatively low-wattage "type A" household lamp CAN be called a bulb. Anything else, whether it be for a Fresnel, CYC Light, Ellipsoidal, Par, Follow Spot, Moving Light, etc - should ALWAYS be called a lamp. In some parts of the world, "globe," "bubble," and "bottle" (especially with PAR lamps, as in "spin the ___") are also used.
