Hi Rick,

I grow mine in a mix that is high in pumice and perlite with some pro mix
and wood chips mixed in. About two weeks ago I put them outside to start
their growing season and they don't seem to be bothered by the cold but when
it gets very cold, I'll bring them in. I have a nice east facing window that
should make them happy.

Warm Regards,

I'm potting up bulbs of l.viridiflora and l.aloides, and not sure how they
should be set in the (gritty) medium, and how much room in the pot they
require. I understand that they're heavy feeders, and prefer lots of sun,
regular moisture in a very cool environment, and also read that they can be
a little crowded in the pot?

Any practical advice here will be appreciated.
