I can only say I have had a similar experience with this species, from the
same source. I don't get the idea that it is a fire-follower in situ. Mine
are outdoors all winter in part sun in a very sandy mix in 5" pots. Some
grew well last year but no flowers. Since they are outdoors and subject to
the full effect of our winter rains (Los Angeles average about 17"/year)
they are not the victims of any capricious watering regime yet they will sit
there and refuse to budge in spite of this natural drenching. Some
eriospermums and albucas are like this also and it is difficult to say if
they "alternante" years or just what is going on.
