Thanks very much guys. With luck and some tender loving care I hope to beat ALINAs 15 years ( I should live that long) I was given two bulbs and told to put them in a cool room .I put them in a north facing bedroom with little light and little heat. They started to grow in two days and grew about 100cm a day . Flowered at7 days . One had 3 blooms and no leaves, the other 2 blooms and 3 leaves. They were kept in the lounge during flowering which I now realise was a big mistake as they only lasted about two weeks.We wanted to appreciate them and could not get the pleasure if they were left in spare bedroom.

If yoir soil is free of stones then it should o.k Depending on shape , sand is good but if sides are steep then it is likely to finish up in the bottom of the hole.

My two plants have now finished flowering . I would like to keep them and hopefully flower in the future. What do I do?
