Maggi,
Every 3 to 5 years - this seems to work fine!

I got these bulbs from Will Ashburner  a lot of years ago, in 1998, as seeds.  Initially we called them Nerine filifolia, but more recently I started calling them Nerine filamentosa.  I see that  Graham Duncan does not use that name  in his recent book, "The Amaryllidaceae of Southern Africa" and these bulbs seem to me to resemble the flower form of Nerine macmasteri, in that the rolled-back petals and sepals extend no more than about half the overall length of the filaments and style.    The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families at Kew  < https://wcsp.science.kew.org/qsearch.do > considers it valid,

Nerine filamentosa W.F.Barker, Fl. Pl. South Africa 15: t. 569 (1935).
and
Nerine macmasteri G.D.Duncan, Amaryllidaceae S. Africa: 548 (2016).

It is clearly different from Nerine filifolia, which I have and which is just starting to open its first flower buds.   Might these bulbs be N. macmasteri?

This is another dwarf Nerine species that came to me under a mistaken name.  It was labeled Nerine gibsonii, which it sadly is not.  I am calling it Nerine angustifolia at the present, and it seems to look closer to that species than to any other.

652075-0

My physical measurements for this plant are as follows:

Leaves:  4 to 10  in number; 1 - 2 mm wide; 30 - 40 cm long;
Flowers: 
    Peduncle ht. 17 - 19 cm;
    Pedicels 17 - 20- mm long;
    Flowers 3 to 10 per umbel;
    Petal width 2 - 4 mm
    Diameter 25 - 30 mm (petals tip to tip)

My garden name for this accession, which I got in 2002 from Den Wilson,  is "Den's Dwarf."
