I grow my ledebourias in a rich organic mix of about 1:1 organic:///inorganic/.
A number of them (like L. socialis) don't like full sun. Ledebouria socialis
in particular should stay moist during its growing season and be fertilized
sparingly. They also look sad and hold on to only 1 or 2 leaves if you don't
give them a dry winter dormancy. Once they get out of their dormancy they
will sprout new leaves and produce lots of flowers.

In my experience, the bulblets take a while to grow new roots and leaves.
