Hi Luc,

Several years ago I organized a topic of the week for more than two years 
where we had a subject we discussed over a couple week period. Often there 
was a wonderful introduction to start us off provided by a knowledgeable 
member of our group. Cameron McMaster provided such an introduction on 
And here were some of the posts from that week (under Haemanthus):

Haemanthus pauculifolius is an evergreen species. I leave H. albiflos out 
year round although I shelter it a bit from the rain when we have a lot of 
it in winter, but I've found some of my other summer rainfall Haemanthus 
seem a lot happier staying in my greenhouse where it is warmer in summer. 
Your climate may be suitable to leaving it outside. After experimenting 
with a number of them in my covered structure outside in summer I moved 
them back to the greenhouse. Although this species was slow for me 
(purchased from Telos), it now seems to be growing quite happily in a pot 
and it's bloomed the last two years in the fall and I think it is most 
attractive. I keep the soil moist.
