" Anyone have luck getting laticoma to bloom?"
Hi Jim:
         Nerine laticoma along with several other species flower regularly here. We can grow citrus of several kinds that produce abundant crops provided they are protected from southern (cold) winds. This to give an idea of the conditions we enjoy. Say zone 9 in winter and zone 10 in spring/summer/autumn. 
         N. laticoma bulbs are in gallon (4 litres) black plastic pots. The mix is gritty and we do not repot for several years. In winter they receive occasional rains and the foliage disappear completely then. As for frost, there are many slight frosts (down to -3 C) but day temperatures are mostly above 10 C. 
         This species do not seem to be fussy about desert conditions. It flowers in the big late summer flush along with krigei, undulata, huttoniae, filifolia, filamentosa, angulata, masoniorum, bowdenii, etc.
Best regards
