Gene, Mary Sue, and all,

My bulb of Hesperocallis has never flowered, and in fact it only sends up 
leaves about once every 10 years!  I may be exaggerating slightly, but only 

I leave it in its deep pot in the greenhouse summer and winter, dry.  I may 
water it once in late spring.  If it sends up leaves, I water it again.

I'm sure I do NOT know how to grow this thing in cultivation!
