Yes  I  have  sown Tigridia pavonia in pots  and they havent  flowered 
as  rapidly as those  I  sowed in the ground. In fact  the  mature T 
pavonia  bulbs  are not happy in pots. I  intend  to  get all mine into 
the ground  this  winter. The  other  species  I  grow chiapensis, 
dugesii, durangense, multiflora and vanhoutei  as well as the  closely  
related Rigidella orthantha  all seem  quite happy in pots.
