Full Answer

After cutting the bloom off, allow the flower stalk to wilt before cutting it off directly above the bulb. If the bulb is planted outdoors, dig it up after flowering, or when temperatures begin to cool in the autumn, wipe the excess dirt off the bulb, and cut off any foliage before storing the bulb in a location with temperatures from 40 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
