Answer: Dear Dawn,

After flowering, the bulbs will spit to produce more smaller bubs which will flower within another one or two seasons.

You can leave them in the pot if you wish as they will flower better the second year if left undisturbed. The benefit of keeping them in a pot is that you will be able to move them around to find the sun. They do enjoy a sunny spot.
