Sorry I had trouble with your spreadsheet but I am partially paralysed. I  
am a retired nurseryman with about 40 years growing experience with 
Amaryllids.  I have lived on the west side of the Phoenix valley, plus I have a 
friend that  has grown Belladonna in central Phoenix 20plus years. Summer temps 
are topped  out around 125F,winter about20F. Here in the dry SW spring 
watering is critical  for Amaryllids to flower not temp. Dormant bulbs heavily 
watered bloom in about  8 weeks.By heavy watering I mean weekly soaking. No 
rain for the past 8  months,we had several inches over the past 3 days. I 
would expect flowering  later this year. Other bulb relatives like Habranthus 
will flower at 125F if  they are watered every other day as will Rhodphiala 
and Crinums.Sprekelia bloom  around oct no matter what the water pattern is. 
If I can help you in any way I  can be reached at _jadeboy48@aol.com_
