Cyrtanthus herrei

Tue, 21 Jul 2009 16:55:51 PDT
I just potted up a few loose bulblets from around my Cyrtanthus herrei which had been uprooted by an animal (probably a skunk) which had been digging near the bulbs.  Each had a single root attached, which I left in place and appear otherwise healthy.  The main bulb has never bloomed for me ... perhaps because the spot its in has grown somewhat shady.  They seem to remain everygreen for me here in San Diego.  Should these be in full sun?  and should I be giving periodic H2O through the summer?  I understand these are from Southern Namibia/Northern Cape province of SA., but it is not described in the 'Color Encyclopedia of Cape Bulbs'.   Any advice would be appreciated.
