how do u get the bulb to start growing
it has being potted now for over a year

On plant Beaucarnea recurvata



I didnt think this had a bulb, just a swollen stem. but knock it out of the pot and see if the swollen bit is firm. if it is firm repot to the correct depth. I suspect it will have rotted off.

Plus it shouldn't really ever get out of leaf so if no leaves......that doesn't sound good.
