Boophone disticha

My boophone start into growth in early April and at that point I give 
them a good drink.  I have fed them one per week while in growth with 
50% african violet food as I do for my Clivia.  They are currently 
outside in full sun and have gotten much water due to our unusually high 
rainfall this year.  I have them potted in commercial potting soil with 
grit added to about 50%.

As for the arum italicum the only difference I can see in he images is 
that your has a dark purple stem below the spathe and the ones I have 
are lighter green.  Could it be that is the "albispathum" that is described.
