Hi Vlad,

My (currently  unavailable) source for Hieronymiella marginata stated it 
would be very unhappy in pots and would prefer open ground. I tried 
that, it flowered first year, got digged up, dry storage for winter, and 
came back next year without flowering. I ordered a second one, one time 
flowering (first bulb again leaves only), and then... well, as it 
happens in my heavy ground, i damaged one bulb on digging it um, didn't 
get through dry storage even though I thought I had cleaned it up 
thoroughly. If you find a less dangerous solution, even giving regular 
flowers, I'm all here for that.

I hope a bad experience helps you more than no experience at all :-(
