Hi Steve,

I repotted mine in Jan-Feb, just before they started growing again.  If you 
don't disturb them too much, you could probably do it anytime, but I 
strongly prefer to repot just before the new growth cycle gets going.  The 
plant is then hormonally primed to take off and grow, whereas now it is 
probably getting ready to start to head for dormancy.

Repotting of Scadoxus membranaceus is important if you want to see them 
bloom, or so I have found.
