Have to check, but there are a couple of nurseries that sell seed and a few offsets each year.

Since it's been here a fair while it should be on AQIS's list, though a quick ICON search doesn't show it.

You could try joining the Yahoo Australian Bulb list; several people there may be able to help.

Hi Ezeiza
When i bought it yesterday, it was bought at a place that specializes in orchards both the one i bought and the 3 large ones they had were being grown in a quick draining orchard mix.....all were very healthy, so I will prob stick with that...if its not broke dont fix it.
Temperature here where i live in aussie land is sub tropical. I will repot it into a  terracotta pot simply because they are quite porous and expel water through the pot when it needs to be repotted and then leave it so as not to desturb it too much....its all a learning curve. Its my belief that you can get tooooooooooooo much info on the net and it will do your head in lol
