This subject of growing this plant has come up often on this list. 
Here's a post of mine on it a little more than a year ago. It 
references an earlier post of Diana Chapman's. People have gotten 
seeds to sprout, but haven't had much luck beyond that. I asked then 
if anyone had  gotten it to bloom and no one responded. I think it's 
a plant to visit in the desert when they have had a good rainy 
season. And sometimes plants with cool foliage if you were growing it 
just for that  and not expecting blooms don't have the same foliage 
in cultivation. Jim Shields will have to tell us if the one leaf of 
his plants that shows up every five or ten years is worth the trouble.
