Dear Mary Sue and Tom:
                      I have grown most of the species of Lachenalias and 
those really difficult in this rainy climate were of Namaqualand and Karoo 
origin. They grew well but were extremely susceptible to summer moisture in 
the mix while dormant. Since we have year round rains special precautions 
were taken, read lifting the bulbs for the summer and keeping them in jars 
with a thick dry peat or vermiculite cover.
