Ammocharis longifolia - pot culture advice

The "seedling" is at least 7 years old, 9 cm tall, 4 cm wide and weighs 56 grams. 
It was grown from seed but I would not call it "tiny". 

See photo at…
My windowsills are not big enough to hold a pot this size.
The roots are in-between white and brown, sort of a light tan. I did not cut them. 

Leo I read your article in the Bulb Garden with keen interest. 

It made me think "where there's a will there's a way". 

My climate here is nowhere near as challenging. 

It got up to 85 F today but that is rare. 
My A. belladonna bloom around 1 in 3 to 1 in 2 for their own mysterious reasons, 

not due to excessive drought or heat. 

So... it is a big enough bulb so I go with Alberto's no-water, right?
