Babiana rubrocyanea

Given rainfall that we had a few weeks ago, we've not watered our bulb plot
here in San Jose. Probably too late for these bulbs, but we also plant in
well draining mounds, not pots. 

Cheers,
Bracey

How often you give water? 
I think I planted Freesia grandiflora
at the same time, and they are ready to bloom.  Everything grows fine except
for Babiana. Using the same soil mix that I made.  ( DG mix)
I should stop watering for a while.
