I got one of this too! Been growing it with my phals indoors beside a very bright window. It has not bloomed either. Now what does it need to bloom? Does it need a cold dormancy too like the hippies? And what causes those browning leaf edges. Mine would do this also sometimes.

Oh one more thing...there is a smaller type that stays like just 6 inches tall. It has a very hairy leaf. H. albiflos has hair in it's leaf edges but this smaller kind has hair all over it's leaf surface and edge. What kind is this smaller one?

A lovely Nerine , N. flexousa.

Sorry I'm late replying, I think the Haemanthus you describe mariava is H. pubescens. The H.albiflos is grown here in a cool, frost free glasshouse. The brown edges to the leaves is probably caused by leaf scorch.
