A pot that is taller than wide helps the drainage tremendously.  I have used a mix with hydroton/hydrokorrel/lecca clay or whatever it is called these days and the Hippeastrums did well.  I just happened to have access to a lot of leftover from someone's research but it is not too expensive for just a handful of plants.

I used gray lava rock in pots of moraeas one year and the did terrible compared to non lava. What about granite instead. Where can it be easily obtained. Thanks,   Bob
