I've followed the instructions on planting depth and bulb spacing for freesia. Since I want to grow them indoors, what temperature and how much light should the bulbs be getting?

Place the pots or pans, without watering them (assuming you planted them in moistened medium), in the shaded window of a cool room where the temperature remains between 45-55 degrees F. Under such conditions root growth will commence promptly. When thesprouts break through, place in a south window. After the flowers begin to form, raise nighttime temperatures to 60-65 degrees F. Water moderately and never let the soil dry out.
