They are rather easy to keep, just (almost) forget to water them in winter... You can divide them or pollinate the flowers (if no insects are around to do the job). The red-orange berries hatch easily and grow fast. Broken pieces of leaf may form offsets.

I'd be happy to send you a chunk of mine when the weather's ready to cooperate.

@janinilulu, it's so beautiful, thank you! I'll treemail you my address. Just let me know what the postage is when the time comes and I'll send you money via PayPal, or a check or whatever works for you.

Thank you again so much!

Google "Haemanthus albiflos for sale". You will find several places.
