It did say the bulbs without leaves aren’t guaranteed to grow so there is the chance all the bulbs I got were duds. I’ll give them a bit longer and flip them if they don’t become soft and rot on me.
I received one bulb with a healthy sprout on top a few months ago. I was too rough when planting it and broke off the sprout. I planted both anyway, thinking the sprout probably wouldn't make it without its bulb. I now have two very nice Barclaya. The sprout is smaller but doing very well. I highly recommend this company and this product.
