Guys, The bulbs were growing in 1-gal pots (ca. 7 in. diam x 7 inches deep)
with 3 or 4 to 6 or 7 bulbs per pot for the larger bulbs (Zephyranthes).
There were more seedlings per pot, and more of the smaller tubispathus
bulbs per pot.

Charles emphasized (after 40 years of growing these things in pots in
greenhouses) that rain lilies need lots of healthy roots if you want to see
them bloom.  That says to me that the pots need to be at least as deep as

Have fun!
