Growing bulbs inside house

Massonia, Lachenalia, Daubenya, etc  can be grown inside your house in winter under very bright lights If you keep your house cool 40-60F (4-15C) that is 35-40F nights and up to 60F days (when lights are on) and not too dry relative humidity.

 In my experience in Michigan (42 degrees N) a sunny window provides inadequate light. Perhaps a cold sunny window could work if you live close to the approximately 30 degree latitude of the native area. 

An unheated garage that does not freeze or near cold leaky windows in a basement under very brights lights on a 12 hour timer work well.
