Thank you, Jacob! I will take your advice and repot in a mostly pumice medium, most likely with no organic material. These had been in a homemade soil mix of about 40% DG, 40% perlite, 10% local (clayish) soil and 10% home-made fine compost. I will leave out local soil and compost ... what do you think of perlite as an component with pumice? Coastal San Diego is usually relatively cool, but I should have been more aware of the hot humid weather that can occur here in late summer.

(... was due to and was accelerated by the high humidity ... ... and let them dry and callous for a week or two before re-potting into pure pumice. It took a few months of watering very sparingly and being patient for the bulb to resume leaf growth only a week ago. Although losing so many roots may set your *Boophone* back, as long as their basal plates are intact, I think they will be fine. However I would repot them into a medium that has a high gas exchange to moisture retention ratio, and water sparingly until they have shown a positive response with new leaf growth (usually predicated by new roots).
