In March 2016, I purchased a bulb of Behria tenuiflora from Telos.  It grew
well that summerr and went dormant sometime in the autumn, but it hasn't
done anything since then.  In 2017 and 2018, it completely failed to break
dormancy.  I tried growing it alongside my Besseras, with summer watering.
When that failed, I dried it out and tried giving it water in the cooler
autumn months.  Nothing.

I looked it the pot yesterday, and the bulb still looks perfectly healthy.
I'm hoping someone can suggest a way to get it to grow in 2019.
