Answer: What a great find! Usually the post bloom procedure is to trim off only the bloom stalk and then continue to grow the bulb as a foliage plant so it can rebuild its strength to bloom again. I think you should repot them as soon as possible (leave the top third of the bulb above the soil line) into approximately six inch pots and try to get them into active growth. After that, put them into the normal care regime of strong growth from bloom until they take a rest during the fall. To do that in October simply withhold water and allow the leaves to wither, keep at a cool temperature (say 50 degrees) for about 8 to 10 weeks. Then bring out into the light and warmth, water lightly once and wait for growth to resume. Good luck with the bulbs!
