I presently grow a number of Eucomis pole-evansii in pots.  My largest 
bulb is about seven years old and has yet to flower.

I was grown from seed received from the old IBS seed list.    I had the 
trouble of limp foliage previously but this year I watered them every 
second or third day and the turgor of the leaf has been much better.  I 
also moved them into a position where they were not protected from 
winds.  The theory behind the wind was to strengthen the leaf by 
exposing it to stress.
