Lachenalia aloides 'Romaud'

One of the pots of Lachnalia bought a couple of weeks ago is showing its blooms beautifully.  There are so many more to open up.  I love the purple blotching on the stems.  With a delicate perfume too, and able to take the low temperatures they are an ideal plant for the conservatory, though when it threatened to go down to well below freezing, I brought them into the house for the night.  One of the leaves has rotted off, so I think I ought to water from the bottom.
