My limited experience of amanacaes is that it grows from mid/ late Summer
until mid Winter, grown indoors/ under cover in the northern Hemisphere. I
would not give such bulbs much water to wake them up, rather a little
humidity and wait for them to grow enough leaf to use water, before wetting
the soil.
