Thank you Mary Sue.  Not always does it mention if plants go dormant, 
but it looks like most of them don't.

I find it interesting that I bought the Cyrtanthus Venus bulbs locally.  
They were growing in a pot on a shaded table with large trees around.  
The soil was very wet, yet it was flowering.

But now have a better idea of what to expect after reading the Wiki page 
and the links.  And your comment about the C brachyscyphus.
