Hi Fred,

The trick to getting these Andean bulbs to bloom is to allow them to cool
down for several months. My P. viridiflora multiplies well just like
yours.  I don't think it has as much to do with mixes as it has to do with
cooling them to get them to bloom. My pots stay outside (Berkeley, CA) and
cool down to near freezing temperatures (8-4C) for a few months and the
temps even dip down to -2C some nights. I also stop watering them during
dormancy, but because my winters are cool and moist, the pots never dry out
and I don't ever recommending drying out completely for these bulbs.

 I even keep them cool and dry in the winter like the clivias,
