Phaedranassa viridiflora

I got a bulb from BX 387 (October 2015) and it grew right away.  After a 
couple months it went dormant.  Then it grew again right away, and went 
dormant right away.  And I although I haven't kept track, I feel like 
it's been dormant about the last 5 months.  So I figured it was dead.  
Nope!  I dug around in the pot tonight & found out that the bulb is firm 
with fresh new roots coming out.

It was growing on a south-facing windowsill without supplemental 
lighting.  (Same place I grow my Hippeastrum seedlings.)  Does it need 
stronger light than that?  Does it need to stay wetter?  I was letting 
it dry out between waterings.  Should I set it outside in the summer 
sun??  (I do that with my Hippeastrum seedlings too.)

cleaning, and sorting my Iris seed harvest)
