I purchased one from a bargain corner at the end of the season from the local garden centre. Its produced some leaves but no flowers yet. I have put it in a pot. Sounds like from what everyone is saying it will be fine in the garden as long as its protected.

At last I have flowers!

My experience is that it will not flower unless it has summer moisture and will grow well in shade but no flowers. I find it easier to give it these conditions (and to put it under cover during winter) if it is grown in a large pot stood permanently in a drip tray of water on a sunny patio throughout the summer....if grown in a pot food is also a requirement.

How big are he pots and how much water do they get?

These  grow in water,  they need plenty to drink

I planted up some arum lily bulbs this year and have grown them in a pot, next to a south-facing wall beside some tomato plants in pots. I watered and fed the arums when watering and feeding my tomatoes. I now have luscious, large leaves, but no sign of flowers. I have no greenhouse, so will have to find a space in the house to overwinter when the frosts come. Do you think I have any hope of flowers next spring?!
