>this species?

Dear Tomas,
	I have grown this species for a few years and give it no 
special treatment, It is wintered in the pot in a cool greenhouse 
although a bit warmer this winter. When it shows signs of growing I 
begin to water lightly at first then more.
	Now the growing point is 6 -7 inches tall and expanding 
daily. It has bloomed in this pot and has enormous foliage and tall 
flower stem.  It is in a large pot -maybe 10 gals capacity. With 
regular fertilizing in growth.

	I do nothing other than this for a few other Eucomis, but I 
got a large size bulb to begin with and it may  just be bulb size 
that determines bloom.

	No special care needed here.		Best wishes.		Jim W.
