Lachenalia no show

Hi all,

I know they aren't terrible rare or unusual but I had an interesting
experience with Lachenalia rubida. My only pot simply failed to show up!

All the other lachenalia have been up for some time, and I've been
patiently waiting. Nothing. Finally this afternoon, I stirred the
potting mix a bit with my index finger caved in like a sink
hole. Nothing there. VANISHED!

Initial suspicion was that a mouse had made off with the bulbs, but
they usually leave a tell-tale hole where they've been digging. The top
of this pot looked untouched.

Any ideas???
