Ledebouria and soil type

Just a quick question about *L. socialis* (but I'm sure it applies to
others):  Have you found soil type to make a major difference in growth
rate? * L. socialis* grows for me, but I never seem to be able to get it
looking quite as nice as my sources.  Bulbs grow, they offset....but the
leaves seem thinner, weaker, and I never get a large number of them.  Young
bulbs seem to take forever to get going.  I mostly keep succulents, so I
tend to use a very gritty mix - could that be it?  Do they need fairly
regular feeding (something I rarely do w/ most of my plants)?
