>I went back to the original query.  How do reticulatas compare with other bulbs?  Are there some bulbs that require similar conditions, so that if you can grow Xx or Yy, you will also succeed with reticulatas?

Well, all of the bulbs you mention grow like weeds here, reseeding everywhere (especially Cyclamen coum), without any interference from me. 
I only feed the snowdrops because the Phillips and Rix book said to. 
So maybe you’ve discovered an important difference. It never occurred to me to feed reticulatas, though Oncocyclus irises are certainly heavy feeders. Maybe junos are, too.
