I think amaryllids are best put into their final large containers, then watered carefully, rather than repotted several times. I have three old B. haemanthoides from Silverhill seed, and a packrat delabeled H. species, none of which has flowered yet. I put them into what seemed like large pots at the time, but now look painfully small. I plant to repot them towards fall. They definitely go dormant here in Phoenix whenever it gets hot, and then spend the summer in a northwest facing window. They always begin growing before I think they should.
