Paintbrush plant [Haemanthus albiflos] 12.08

Paintbrush plant [Haemanthus albiflos] 12.08 (Haemanthus albiflos)

I couldn't resist this plant when I saw it for sale at a local fund-raising event quite some time ago, it was so unusual. It has flowered once. For a long time I didn't know what it was called or what conditions it preferred. With the help of my GoY calendar I intend to give it better care.

Not too sure about this - which way up does it go? LOL. What kind of flower did it have?
