Hi Jim: 


         Many thanks for the useful information. Here these oxalis and very many other Cape species are grown at about 13-15 C at daytime and about 5 C at night. 


         A number of the bulbs were of flowering size so do not give up hope. As the weather turns hotter in Spring do not force them into dormancy, take them to a spot as cool as possible and with good light (not in full sun if it is too hot). This way they will keep on growing during your spring and summer before going dormant. This will happen the first season. In subsequent years they will sprout in autumn, flower in autumn and winter and go dormant in mid/late spring, for the summer. 


All the best and good luck
