The devious calculus of plant acquisition

Jim, I of course in mild climate Auckland, have them surviving just fine 
in the garden.  Almost all go into the leafless bare corm state.  They 
are in a place where they get little sun, and are open to what rain we 
get, and we get quite a bit.  So with the lack of sun, and the 
occasional rain, they would not dry out completely.  Which is probably a 
state which needs to be duplicated in the cold frame.

They come away and make a marvellous show every winter.  And yes, some 
corms don't survive but the seedlings make up for it.
