Hi Guys,

I've been asked the question, can one grow Cape bulbs in Taiwan.

I answered the following:
I'm probably not the best person to ask, but I'd think that as long as you 
mimic the basic seasonal factors you'd be good to go: dry summers (i.e. 
no watering of bulbs - you can lift them and store them in as cool a 
place as possible, in paper bags to breathe), lowering of temperatures as autumn sets in, then start watering and 
continue throughout winter.

Can anyone confirm or add to this?

Thanks for your expertise,
