Sir mine hasn't flowered for almost 2 years. The bulbs and their foliage are healthy and are potted in a sandy media.maybe they need more time.

Mikhurram,
Try growing them in some early morning sun and feed often.

Munir,
No, they are not from the rain lily family. I have posted a few Cyrtanthes Mackenii flowers which are tubular.
Regards
Heinie
