    Unhappy Angry or sad Bulbo?

    Hello Chian, Thank you for you help. Bulbo culture is hard to find info about online. If you know what I may have done to this poor little guy by repotting it...I tried to switch it to S/H, saw the yellowing and shriveling advancing quickly, so I put it in sphag. The yellowing seemed to stabilize, well... here are the photos.

    My understanding is that most of this genus need to stay wet, plenty of water year around. The s/h was probably not keeping all portions of the roots equally as damp?

    It is a Jersey. I have it sphag and it seems more stable now. I will post a photo tomorrow because it has a new growth that I am not sure about.
    Thanks and welcome to the forum!
