Yes, pull flowered stems immediately after flowering to encourage further flowers. I grow just one variety now.....one of the Princess series...after growing a few different ones. It flowers for 6 months without let up.
Janebal, yes pot up those little roots ASAP. For me, I would pot on a couple of times before plantImg out in the garden so that a good size vigorous specimen not eaten by slugs, snails etc., is already established., Good soil but not cold waterlogged.
Placing alstromerias is important. They flower for months but then go dormant often in mid or late summer leaving a gap in the border. So I plant behind a dahlia, agastache, actea, etc so,that the gap is not seen.
