Beautiful Allesandro. I've found conflicting information on whether or not to keep the top of the bulb exposed. What is your experience?

Thanks Evan
the bulb must be exposed, even offsets produced by the mother bulb tend to emerge from the soil,many species of Cyrtanthus have this tendency

Thanks for clarifying that Alessandro. I've found a source here for this one, Telos Rare Bulbs.
