|When the flowers fade, cut off the flower stem. Place the plant in light shade and water and fertilize to encourage the growth of new leaves. Bulbs can be left in their original containers for 2 or more years before repotting is necessary. When the plants go into dormancy you can cut off the dead foliage. After it has rested for several months you'll see a new flower stem develop and new leaves. Enjoy!
