[Digikam-users] How to get DK to include new directories in collection?

I have a script which gets pictures off my digital camera's SD card, 
rotates them, adds date and time to their filenames (like 
YYYYMMDD_hhmmss_original-filename) and puts them in folders (like 
/home/john/pix/2015/20150311/ ). This is similar to what I could do 
using digikam to import from the card but it handles my camera's video 
files better than digikam does.)

My home directory is mounted via NFS and is a "Collection on Network 
Share" in digikam. Also: /home/john/pix/ is actually a symlink to where 
the filesystem is really mounted.

Sometimes after importing pictures using my script it takes digikam a 
few minutes to notice the new folders and add them to the albums in my 
collection. However since 13th February Digikam has not added any new 
folders to my album collection!

Is there any way to make Digikam "see" the new folders and add them to 
my albums?

I'm on Digikam 3.5.0 on Kubuntu 14.04 (kde 4.13.3).
