I have a small -- very small! -- bulb of Hymenocallis woelfleana. It is 
starting to leaf out just now. It does not seem to get any bigger, and 
every spring I fear that I am going to lose it.

I am currently growing it in a 1-gal. plastic container, outdoors, under 
dappled shade. In winter, it is kept quite dry and in the cool greenhouse, 
temperatures never quite dropping to 32°F (0°C). It tends to hold it leaves 
until very early spring, when they yellow off.

Does anyone grow this successfully in cultivation? How should this species 
be grown?
