While I haven't grown this plant, other Hymenocallis grow during warm weather, and do
best in mostly full sun. I wouldn't expect much from your pygmy during the winter. Next
summer keep it as warm as possible in Canada and give it a lot of sun. You will also see
that overpotting Hymenocallis is a very good idea.
