I've had two amarcrinum plants in the ground for years. One has been growing in part sun/part shade for 5 years and the other has been growing in full sun for 4 years. They have fine, strappy leaves, spread a bit and look fine all year but no blooms, ever. In December, I gave them a light application of fish emulsion. I just now gave them another dose (late January) because I thought maybe they needed more. They get low to average amounts of water and are growing on a slight slope.

Should I water them more? Should I fertilize them more? What will it take to get them to bloom? I know they can take awhile before they flower but 4-5 years seems like more than enough time! I'm not getting any younger and I'd like to see them bloom.

If anyone has any ideas or experience growing amarcrinums, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks!
