The bulbs are tiny but the plants they make are surprisingly large.  I'd put
about six corms per 20-cm pot, although you might be able to get away with
up to eight.

I've found them to be easy to grow, but in my conditions the corms tend to
dwindle over time.  Maybe yours will be happier, but until you know for
sure, don't forget to re-seed them from time to time.

The climate they're native to is similar to Antalya, Turkey or southwestern
Greece.  Similar temps to where you are, but a little bit more summer

Good luck!
