I suppose this explains my problem with I cycloglossa to some extent.  I did
read up on it before ordering.  (If you see a photo of it you WILL want it)
As I recall, they do need good drainage, but I hadn't read about sand beds.
I guuess I thought that since the bed has good drainage and supports other
bulbs, it would be adequate.  I had also read that this particular Juno was
much easier to grow than others.
