Unfired clay pot, 60/40 perlite/aquatic plant potting chips, plus a dash of regular garden seedling potting mix. So far the verdict is: Easy as pie, as long as you get a healthy bulb to start and follow the rules.

Warm, essentially bone-dry dormancy in summer, wet winter with days below 60 and nights around 50, low tds water and weak ferts. I like my bedroom ice cold to sleep and my water is 23ppm from the tap, so this is easy for me.

Unglazed, not unfired, that's what I get for typing while baking.

Very exciting. Congrats and good luck on the spike!

Your easy as pie sounds a bit much for me. I appreciate the share all the same!
