Hymenocallis Question

Jacob and all,

Our pots of Hymenocallis eucharidifolia are left dry for up to 6 
months!  After a couple months of being dry here, most of them lose all 
their leaves.  I'd try leaving your plant dry until it has lost almost all 
its present leaves, then start watering again.

Until we get additional input from others who grow and bloom H. 
eucharidfifolia, you will have to do some experimenting.

Good luck!
