Dear Chad,

	What soil mix do you use and how much of the bulb is exposed?  These both seem very appropriate for good culture.

Hi Jim,

I keep my H. Mandoni mostly dry. I don't give it any water in the winter time and water it about once a week during active growth. I try to let it dry out pretty good in between waterings. I like to use hydroponic fertilizer with most waterings,  But sometimes I use a granular bulb fertilizer after which I skip the hydroponic stuff for awhile. I think patience is the main trick to get them to flower. :-)
