I believe that these are mesic forest dwellers and even climb up onto the
base of trees and can be seen in  crevices...quasi epiphytic.  Old orchid
mix w/ compost and sand  and/or coir or orchid mix even with potting soil
should work.  They do not like to be too dry, as I have found out killing a
batch of seedlings 5 yrs ago in a drought.
this same mix works well for my Worsleya, too.  I thinlk that these are two
amaryllids like very little disturbance once established.
