Hi Carol:
Bowiea is now regarded as being an Ornithogalum. It is actually a true bulb, 
not a corm. It is extremely poisonous in all its parts. It is peculiar in 
that it seldom shows any leaves. As an adult, only when the plant is really 
happy in cultivation; it produces two or three short oblong leaves like 
those of Lachenalias. The "vine" is a series of branched peduncles that make 
photosynthesis just like leaves do in normal plants. Dry winter dormant in 
well drained soil and prefers some shade in the hot wild original habitat. 
The bulbs are grown out of the ground (liek other Ornithogalums do).
All the best
