I don't know but had a similar experience with some moraea.  I assumed that varmits ate the bulbs last year but no, they are covered with a screen.  This year they produced green leaves but no blooms.  The bulbs are firm and look fine.  I am located in NO CA

Subject: [pbs] Moraea tricolor corms not sprouting -2 years


I have two corms of Moraea tricolor that are not sprouting.  I planted 
the corms in September 2015 in a free draining soil mix in a cool 
greenhouse.  They have been in the cool greenhouse ever since.  I have 
watered them sparsely a few times during their winter growing seasons, 
and they were totally dry all spring and summer.  The corms are firm, 
they show no signs of rot.  They have no roots.  They're just sitting there.

Does anyone have any idea why, or if there is something I can do to get 
them going?
