This is my experience also. These bulbs seem willing to form bulbs  
whenever they 'realise' no further downward growth is possible. Some  
Australian terrestrial orchids do likewise. So I expected Leontice to  
be similar but it appears they really do want that extra depth.

Sorry - haven't worked out how to quote properly yet and the sun is  
sining (a rare event this winter) so I want to get out in the garden!
