I know that I answered your question before.  I'm not certain that you got
what you were looking for.

I just came in from checking one of my "growing areas," and there is another
S.membranaceus flower "spike" showing in one of the pots.

I take it that you have tried "methods" that you have used with other
Scadoxus and they have not produced blooming results?

What size are your bulbs?  Generally the "bulbs" are not large, but they do
have rather extensive root mass. For that reason, they are "deceptive" as to
the required pot size.  They can use a minimal 8in. pot, good drainage, and
some shade.

Scadoxus, in general, thrive on shaded, bright light.  Does that give you a
slight clue? 

If you have more specifics, please ask as I think I am just being too
