Unfortunately, it is very difficult to grow tulips successfully long term in a container. The forcing process exhausts the bulbs and they usually do not bloom again. If you have access to a garden you could try planting them there and hope for them to recover enough strength to bloom again in about two years. Sadly, I would suggest you enjoy them and then discard them.
