Help newbie w/Crinums..
Help me please..I just recieved some crinum bulbs from a fellow GW'er. I put them in a pot on top of my fridge since it is late in the season, plus I don't know if these types are hardy here. I don't know what kind they are, only labeled "pink" and "wine".
The bulbs are dry, should I water them once in awhile and keep them dormanr for the winter in the basement with my brugs, or should I give them some bottom heat and light to get them going?
Since they are already dry, though they do show a tiny bit of green at the top of their "handle"? should I just let them be dormant?
I planted them as I would amaryllis, the top 1/3 of the bulb above soil, and I also put sand on top of the soil to avoid the dreaded fungus gnats.
Help please, I really dont want to lose these, I have wanted crinums for so long, and they are a cherished gift.
