Germination As a houseplant, plant indoors in pots, 1/2" deep, in a mixture of two parts rich potting soil, one part builders sand and one part peat moss. Tubers can also be started indoors in late Winter then transplant to the garden. Place in indirect light and keep soil evenly moist. Once it begins to grow, move into more sun and increase watering. After blooming, withhold water and fertilizer, allowing the plant to go dormant. When the foliage dies down, dig the tubers and store them in peat moss or vermiculite through the Winter. They can also be left in their pots of dry soil until Spring, when they should be replanted in fresh soil.
