<Doesn't Alberto's mix dry out too fast? How regular do you have to water
and fertilize, since it contains a minimum of organic material?>

Hello Pieter,
No it doesn't dry out too fast at all.  I only water about once a month or
less even, and I admit I am not the most attentive of gardeners.  Over the
summer I let nature take care of them, and they kept on blooming.  I haven't
fertilized yet and I'm not sure that I will, it sure doesn't look like they
are lacking anything.  Getting results like this is new to me, I'm pretty
much sitting back and watching what is happening, and enjoying it.  None of
the hippeastrum have been given a rest period either.  They went from
outside to my basement under a 400 hps bulb and I was going to put them to
rest when the foliage died back.  Instead they are growing like weeds!

I wonder if I should be fertilizing them?  Would a tomato fertilizer work,
like a 6-12-12?  Would one application worked into the mix when I repot them
