  Boophone, and large Amaryllids in general, cannot be over-potted. The largest, deepest pot you can adequately manage is the thing to go for. If you are growing B. disticha, you should certainly consider trying one of them in the ground - I get yearly blooms from my B. disticha in the front garden since I planted them.
