That's the way it works in the wild and the "soil" can be gravel and nothing else.

This is Cypella coelestis, a subtropical bulb, rather different than Herbertia lahue, that can take slight frosts without problems.

Cylella coelestis has survived 3 winters here in Kansas USA, this last we had a low
of 19 below zero F.  Also surviving our winter is Eucomis and Sprekelia, and Cypella herbertii.

Only by reverting its natural winter cycle to a summer one. It is still a subtropical bulb being killed by frosts during its normal winter cycle.
 
These occasional experiments do not imply the plant will become a cold climate one. Proof of it is how uncommon in cultivation it is.

I possess Cypella coelestis, perhaps this being varying its, but I have not never seen with stems of 140 cm, but I trust myself the observations, I do not know the difference

I have made a little of search, me seems of to have understood that the difference between the two species is in the form of the inner petals
