I have posted this before, I dont remember if it was to this fourm or another. .
So I will just start over.
I have been growing this for 9 months now. They bloom a beautiful pink bloom in the summer. They are bulbs. They Love to stay damp and love full sun on the deck for summer and bay windows for winter. Ill try to find pics of them in bloom after I post this. Maybe in the mean time one of you will remember these or know what they are called.. I remember... dihalla. Diha.. . idk ... something like that spelling.

Im curious. I have never moved these plants or even given them fertilizer would they do well with any type of fertilizer? All winter they done so beautifully they didnt bloom but they never looked unhappy either. I love the way they look now.

I've never fed mine in the 15 years I've had them. They just keep increasing and bloom in late summer/fall. They do like plenty of water.
