Dear Nan et al:
                     In my experience Lycorises do not bloom for years for 
the simple reason that people would share or sell offsets and seldom the 
mother blooming plant. After a few seasons of being grown on they will 
flower for years to come. OF course if they increase rapidly the clump will 
lift the bulbs to unsuitable depths and the whole group will produce no 
further blooms.
                     BUT, to this same forum Jim Waddick brought the most 
sound piece of information on Lycorises in bulb cultivation history. After 
seeing them in the wild in China he advised on watering copiously and giving 
them shady positions. We have been growing them like Nerines whcih Jim 
demonstrated they aren't.
