I have had a ledebouria socialis plant for over 35 years in the same  
small 4 inch pot. It mostly lives in my bathroom in the SF Bay Area  
and though it looks straggly, it has survived long stretches without  
water. Recently, I potted up some of the bulbs and brought one of the  
plants with me to Arizona for the winter. It was doing splendidly  
there indoors and outdoors for a week or two and appears to be a  
violacea cultivar, looking almost exactly like the photo 1 by Nhu  
Nguyen. Very recently, the tips of the leaves have withered and curled  
up. I cut off these tips, however, one of the leaves continued to curl  
up and I removed that leaf. I am wondering if you can tell me why this  
has happened and what I should do to prevent this plant from dying.
Yours truly, Michele
