Charles Crane grew these bulbs inside a greenhouse and found that they did very well for him growing actively for about 11 months of the year, including straight through winter. He let them rest (dry) for a month or so during the hottest weather in summer. My advice would be to pot immediately, place in a moderately warm spot with good light, and begin watering carefully. When you get good leaf growth, water more and feed regularly. Enjoy your new rain lilies!

What is the growing season for these species? Should they be potted up and watered now or in Spring? Nick -- James Shields email@example.com P.O. Box 92 Westfield, IN 46074 U.S.A.
