Ok, thanks again. All of my bulbs (Hyacinthaceae & Amaryllidaceae) are greenhouse kept. So; I think that would slow the development. Also- based on other info from previous posts; I think I need to repot into deeper pots when they're dormant. This summer was the first year that I unpotted most of the bulbs. I did find it odd that some bulbs sat so low in the pot. I didn't realize they moved to a location they like. The square pots I'm using are not very deep at all.

For Bay Area conditions they are reported to flower in its fifth year. But it is a tough, long lived bulb and does well with an 8 in. pot for years.
