Hi, Steve.

Here in bone-dry California, I never let my potted Haemanthus dry out
completely. It damages the bulbs' perennial roots. When they're dormant, I
try to give them just enough water to keep the soil from completely drying
out (here that means I run the drip lines for about 15 minutes once a week).

The plants are in a spot that's fairly shady in summer, so they don't get

I don't know how that advice will apply in your part of the country, but if
the bulbs are shrinking significantly, that's not a good sign.
