    Feed it occasionally with a liquid feed until the leaves start to die down naturally (the leaves are now building up the bulb) although they don't always go dormant.  If it does go dormant, simply stop watering it until you see it start to grow again, at which point start watering again. image


    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
