Hi Ken,

That's a really interesting pattern. The top of the leaves are green but
then starts mottling and becoming yellow-green. I have not seen that before
but there is definitely some sort of issue with the bulb.

Snails and slugs have been known to spread viruses because they scrape the
plant tissue that they eat, causing mechanical inoculation of the viruses
and other diseases.
