Neutral palmbob On May 17, 2012, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

I have never grown this plant, but from what I have seen and read about it, it is a unique representative of this genus. Native to eastern South Africa, it grows between rocks in protected locations, getting little if any direct sunlight. It is a perennial and likes moisture year round, though less in colder seasons. It grows flat agains the ground and maintains only 2-4 leaves at a time. Roots are pretty large for a bulb. Supposedly very apt to be attacked by mealy bugs.
