Wow, yours is blooming?? 😍 I've actually been meaning to ask you about mine. The bulbs have gotten SUPER chubby, but even the new leaves have died off. I haven't un-potted, but the roots must be solid, bc the plants won't budge. They're getting strong dappled sun until 11ish, same as the Dorstenia and Talinum. I've had a Drimiopsis maculata for a few years that basically did the same, bulb got super chubby but the leaves aren't what they should be at all. I can't figure out wth. Any ideas??

Chubby is good. As long as the bulbs are looking healthy.... leaves will grow back. They do go threw some dormancy in the winter. The ones that are flowering are my mature plants. I do have mine in full sun year around, also. I think u can increase the amount of sun they are receiving. 🌞

Cool, thanks, I won't panic yet. 😅 I'll need to put them in a bigger pot so they don't dry out so fast, but I'll try scooting them out into some stronger sun. 👍
