I have a not-amazonica Eucharis that I've grown for many years without flowering. During
the growing season I've babied them with lots of fertilizer, frequent watering and lots
of heat. The plant offsets well. I give some of the containers a dry winter rest outside
in my carport. Last winter I lost the ones outside because they got too cold. In all
this time no flowering from any of the containers.

I gave a single bulb to my mother in southern California. She put it on her kitchen
windowsill and watered it as though it were a normal houseplant. In a little over a year
hers bloomed.

Mine has still not bloomed.

So I recommend you ship your plant to my mom.
