Wendy, they do go dormant. I doubt you killed it, unless the bulb itself appears to be shriveled or mush. http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/Albuca

Help! I am in Phoenix Arizona and in mid may my albuca spiralis lost it's corkscrew leaves. I had it in my bathroom window. Did it get too much moisture in my bathroom or did it lose it's leaves because it is dormant? I moved my beloved plant to my eastern exposure window in my bedroom with my other succulents. I am new to Albuca Spiralis and have fallen in love with my plant. Have I killed it or does it lose it's leaves in summer?
