Answer: With good care it should bloom every year for you. It sounds like you did things right, but it takes a lot of foliage for the bulb to rebuild its strength enough to rebloom. For best results you need to fertilize it and give it ample sun and water during the spring and summer months so it grows lots of healthy leaves over as long a season as possible. Then stop watering and store it for eight to ten weeks (four months is a little long), cut off the leaves when they dry up, and then after the rest put it back into growth. Since it has made lots of foliage, and you'll be giving it another season of good care this year, it should be able to bloom next year. Don't give up!
