Haemanthus Season (What Causes This?)

Winter-growing Haemanthus are also coming into flower here - buds appeared 
in the dry resting pots a few days ago and are expanding rapidly now that 
they are being watered. Cooler temperatures (or a sudden drop in 
temperature) may be a trigger and seem more probable than daylength. We have 
certainly progressed into cool 'autumnal' weather - has anyone else noted a 
cooling event that could have caused flowering to start?

Does anyone know what actually triggers the blooms or the new season growth?
