Hi Ina,

I would love to have those temperatures you have during the winter. I think
they're cool enough for Lachenalia, even if your daytime temps go to 19C.
They tend to have leaf rot issues with too much water and not enough air
movement. Sounds like a fun adventure with some really interesting plants.
