@bblondie Hi Amanda I’m amazed the bulb has no substance to it just a papery shell - I’ll be surprised if it does much. I’d put it in the garage when I took the wax off and put it in the garden a couple of weeks ago in the sunshine!! The pot was full of water yesterday when I returned from a weekend away - it was when I tipped the water out I spotted life 😱😍
Wow weird ! Its probably so relieved, what a great surprise to come home to ! One time I was given two succulents that were covered in a thick coat of red spray paint for xmas. They didn't do well at all grew all warped and weird ended up dying. I wish companies cared more and took into consideration that they're living things, anyways though i can't wait to see its progress now that it's free 🕊
I would cut the wax off after it flowers so you can save the bulb and it can regrow again. Its so bad for the bulbs and roots i hate that they do this.. https://www.houzz.com/discussions/2808938/the-horror-that-is-wax-encased-bulbs
I’ve heard of these before, think they are designed for a ‘one time show’ only unfortunately - which I guess is fine if that’s all you want. My tutor at college did an experiment on one to try and get the wax off, quite difficult but she managed to get a couple of roots to form so it may survive another year.
