Default Tiger Lily

Can anyone point me to a resource on Tiger Lily's ? or tell me about
their history?

I bought one and it is growing like crazy (great light and CO2), but I
don't know much about the plant and how it propagates. I am just
curious when the bulb 'thing' separates from the 'plant'. Oxygen
bubbles all over the underside of the leaves. Gorgeous plant.

There isn't much writtern on them that I can find.

I have a bunch. Pull the plant off when it reached a reasonable size
(a few inches) and repot it. Leave the bulb alone and it should
grow a new plant. The plant you separated should grow a new bulb.

All this presumes adequate fertilization.

What will happen if I leave it like it is? (i.e. bulb attached to
flourishing plant)

It'll grow more plants, but they'll be crowded and light starved
and won't get as big as the first one.
