    Craig, what they do is after flowering, they will produce two, what we call Daughter bulbs, as the mother bulb dies back. then eventually the mother bulb will just die. Each pbulb only flowers once. Good luck with your goal! its actually quite easy

    Thanks Gabi. I figured I should update it. I haven't done so since 2007! That old profile pic was from my sister's wedding. The new one is from this past weekend. I was in Memphis, TN to see some plays. Had a great time.

    Cheers,

    Thank you! Yes, they are cool growers, they don't like temperatures above 75 °F.
