The Freesias are probably winter growers, F. alba certainly is

Zantedeschia pentlandii is a summer grower/dry winter dormant

Pasithea caerulea is not a bulb, but an herbaceous perennial with swollen roots. It is a winter grower/summer dormant. Needs well drained soil and full sun. It likes it warmish although very fine specimes were grown at the S. American slope at UCBG Berkeley where winters are not precisely Caribbean.

Generally speaking it is better to start with smaller pots and potting on to larger pots the whole rootball without any pricking, which bubous plants seedlings particularly dislike.
