Hyacinth bulbs

Hello, I planted my bulbs in pots early Nov and put them in a cool dark place. I have attached a picture and just wanted to find out at what stage I move them out of a dark place and where to? This one is probably the least developed. Thanks

    I'm no expert as it's my first year growing hyacinths in a pot.
    The bulbs I used were 'prepared' bulbs.
    I planted them in late October and left them in complete darkness in my garage.
    Once the shoots were about 1.5" long I brought the pots indoors and left them close to a window (but not on a window sill as it's too cold at night) in an unheated bedroom until the leaves greened-up (about 7 days).
    A week ago I brought them into my lounge and this is how they look today-

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
