Unusual Amaryllid foliage

There is not a definite horizon between the layers.  depending on the size
of the bulbs I will mix the adjacent components from 1 to 3 inches (2.5 -
7.5cm) deep in about equal proportions.  For the bottom layer I do this
below the bulb, and then I mix my top grit above the bulb, for those that
are completely below ground.

I just started doing that recently when Babiana pygmaea started their
seasonal growth then several suddenly rotted as the mix they were in was
retaining too much water.  The survivors and the few others I tried this
with seem to be doing fine.
