Albuca spiralis

I was given an Albuca spiralis 'Fizzle Sizzle' months ago and thought I was
doing the right thing..  I kept it on the dry side (but not totally dry) in
my propagation house which gets mostly full sun.  It produce a flower stalk
which didn't progress but slowly so I brought it into a west-facing window
in a house that varies from 60-70 degrees.  I watched it and much more
quickly it appeared that the flowers would be opening within a few days but
all the leaves died and the flower stalk was leaning. I touched the stalk
and it was not firm, felt loose and I observed mold so I tugged gently and
it came away in my hand and was clearly rotting, so I cut off the bad part
and stuck it in a glass of water.  Then discovered the bulb had completed
rotted.

 

I can't find any but the most general cultural information which doesn't
help me.  Does anyone grow this and if they do, may I please have some
advice on keeping them alive?  I was so looking forward to flowers because
it's reputed to have a wonderful scent!!!!
