I've had this for probably 25 years or more and it blooms reliably in the greenhouse, but multiplies VERY slowly, occasionally making an offset every 5-10 years.  This year before growth began, I repotted in some fresh promix, and here it is expressing its thanks.  Either that, or the arrival of so many new bulb plants has convinced it to up its game lest something else get a better spot on the bench.
It was sold as Haemanthus coccineus back in the day and I have no idea where I got it.  Now that PBS has allowed me to see and grow some real Haemanthus, I was able to properly id the thing.  A cool plant in any case!
