    ...though that doesn't hurt. The soil needs to get down to 40 degrees for about 6 weeks for them to bloom again.

    Another thing is they really need to be fed "bloom builder" type fertilizer for best results.

    If you don't have full sunlight, even though the thing will come up each year, the leaves won't be able to create enough "food" (i.e. starches) for the bulb to be able to bloom the following year...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
