Calochortus notes

The recent post " I grow my plants with close to no fertilizer so 
they are very slow but have no problems with winter losses." reminds 
me that I read somewhere that Calochortus are intolerant of 
chlorinated water. I water my bulb beds from a rainwater storage tank 
filled from the gutters on the roofed bulb house. It is tedious 
because of the low pressure but it avoids city water. In my former 
home I had a well with very pure water.
