Help with Hessea stellaris

I have tried various Hessia species from seeds. Stellaris was among them.
my impression was (like with various Nerines and Haemanthus) The growing
cycles do not fit neatly into Summer or Winter patterns, but Spring and
Autumn cycles. For example Haemanthus humilis comes into growth for me in
mid Summer and goes dormant in mid Winter -making it an Autumn rather than
a Summer growing plant. -I have to remember to leave it dry in Spring
