    I grow mine in pots and I've had mild success, I grow them just as I grow 
all my other South American amaryllids in a very pourus mix.  Also mine seems to 
be a cross with Brunsvigia *thanks Nhu :)*, so that may be helping the 
situation!  I have mine in a gallon sized pots.

Has anyone outside of the "Mediterranean" climate had success with growing
and blooming this one in the ground or in pots? What special things did you
do? I have tried planting them 12 inches deep in a sand filled pit, in a
cool greenhouse, and in a cold frame - with no success except a feeble bloom
stalk the first year - and no bloom, growth, or survival after that.
