Space the bulbs evenly over the surface and bury only the bottom half or each bulb in the potting mixture.
    During the fist four or six weeks do not feed the plants and water sparingly, allowing the top half or the potting mixture to dry out between waterings. When the new roots should be well established, treat the plants in the normal way. Break up overcrowded clumps every two or there years.
