Thanks very much guys. With luck and some tender loving care I hope to beat ALINAs 15 years ( I should live that long) I was given two bulbs and told to put them in a cool room .I put them in a north facing bedroom with little light and little heat. They started to grow in two days and grew about 100cm a day . Flowered at7 days . One had 3 blooms and no leaves, the other 2 blooms and 3 leaves. They were kept in the lounge during flowering which I now realise was a big mistake as they only lasted about two weeks.We wanted to appreciate them and could not get the pleasure if they were left in spare bedroom.
