You say nothing about your local conditions.

if they are the winter dormant form sow in spring in pure coarse sand in a deep 
pot with very good drainage holes. Once germination takes place move gradually 
to full sun (they grow in full sun). Careful with the waterings. The worst 
period is the first dormancy but seedlings are apt to keep on growing the first 
and second season with no dormancy inbetween. On the other hand once mature will 
live and flower for many years.

In summary, hot desert warm season bulb (there is a winter growing form in 
cultivation). Bulbs very deep in the soil, large, offsetting slowly. Dry winter 
dormant for a long season.

Good luck
