Nerine bulb

Dear Ina, Does it look like part of your plant is leaf tissue and the rest  
roots. I keep seeds like that covered with a plastic bag to prevent drying 
and  keep the plant in bright light. I keep the soil moist with a very 
diluted liquid  plant food. Say 1/4 teaspoon of water soluble fertiliser in one 
gallon lukewarm  water. Make sure the soil is not sopping wet, just moist. 
The roots will grow  down into the potting mix on there own. But don't let 
them dry. If the roots  grow, but lay on the surface of the potting mix you can 
put a very thin layer of  moist mix over the roots. Just enough to cover 
them. If the leaves are getting  enough light they should have a healthy green 
color.not yellowish. If it is too  pale there is not enough light. Keep 
warm/not cold say mid 70's f. I hop this  helps. if it doesn't send me a 
message and we will figure out what needs to be  done-Russ H.

I was  given this bulb by Terry Hatch who had recently received it, but 
no  name.  Last winter it was suggested on the PBS it could be Nerine  
undulata.  The bulb has now pushed a large part out of the  soil.  Should 
I plant it deeper or leave it?There is a little one and  a bigger one 
coming up to the right of  it.…
