Hi, Paul. I planted my lot in a 4" pot and only 2 survived. They have 
never gone dormant, but I do not claim them to be evergreen. I just 
don't know, since they are so young and have been in a controlled 
environment the entire time. These are not big plants. The leaves are 
fairly narrow. Only the one of the two bulbs has bloomed, so I don't 
know about consistency. It's my first time to bloom a Rhodophiala..
