Hi Eugene and Victoria,

The giant form of Haemanthus humilis is truly impressive! It's not too
difficult to grow. In general, Haemanthus humilis are summer growers and do
go dormant in winter. I would allow the plant to dry out in winter (I've
kept mine near bone dry), then resume watering in spring.
