Dear Jane,

Thanks for that suggestion about extra water in early growth for 
Tecophilaeas. I see Ian Young is suggesting not letting them get too dry in 
dormancy when others have said to keep them dry. They are corms and don't 
have perennial roots, but maybe yours in the plunge are surrounded by soil 
that still has some moisture in it when my soil be late fall when they 
reappear has been completely dry for a long time. Bill (Dijk) and Lee, 
during dormancy do you ever water your pots? I assume John Lonsdale would 
get some moisture from rain for his.

Mary Sue
