Something else. We are accostumed to seeing Ledebouria socialis as a clump of plants in which the bulbs are completely exposed. This must be attributed to the Dutch method. As a matter of fact, this and other Ledebourias if given ample space bury their bulbs deeply in the mix or soil, only the foliage being visible and pressed flat against the mix. Offsets appear deep in the ground (at least 4 in, 10 cm.) from the base of the mother bulbs.
