Moved to the UK from South Africa about 4 yrs ago. The climates couldn't be more different so I'm still getting used to what grows well here & what do

So excited! I bought a plant a couple seasons ago & got 2 side shoots come up. I've separated them & they're shooting again! Love #bulbs!

But when I cut off all the leaves & stop watering the bulb will go dormant as all bulbs do.

When they stop flowering leave them. Feed and then don't water them so they suck back the goodness into the leaves. Then they'll dry out and rest and then around Christmas time put them in a pot of soil not buried and start them off again. They like to be rested otherwise you'll just keep getting leaves.
