Answer: We recommend discarding bulbs that have been forced to bloom out of their normal blooming period. If you purchased pre-cooled bulbs, it's because your growing region does not provide the winter chill that these bulbs need prior to bloom. Pre-cooled is not the same as forced. So, once your bulbs have finished blooming and the leaves die down naturally, dig them up, store them in the refrigerator, then replant in December for spring bloom next year.
The green pod on your freesia is a seed pod. I'd cut the old flowering stem off to allow the plant to store energy for next year's bloom.
