I said the opposite, but I think we are both right depending on the
ambient climate. I believe the Ammocharis in question are tiny seedlings.
My experience in a warm climate is that such will struggle with being
uprooted, shipped and repotted during warm weather unless they get a
little coolness and water after repotting. For larger bulbs I would agree
with Alberto.
