Jim McK.,

By deterioration, I meant rotted or dried up bulbs, as well as most of the 
surviving bulbs barely able to make any foliage in late autumn.  No flowers 
at all.

<<When you say that plants kept in the greenhouse dry gave poor results, do
you mean poor results in terms of bloom, poor bulb size, or poor results in
terms of overall plant quality, or what?

All of the above!

The rescued nerine hybrids were from a greenhouse in Oregon.  I doubt I 
could manage to reproduce any of those conditions here in central Indiana, 
one of the reasons I did not accept any of the rescued bulbs.
