Hi Benacre,

I tend to cut off the flower stalk immediately after flowering and then continue to water as normal until the leaves fade. If possible put the bulbs into some soil and place outside...this way they can continue to store new energy in their leaves until the leaves yellow and fall off. At this stage you can either leave them, or palce them in the fridge in a bag for about 16 weeks before replanting and forcing all over again,

Geoff
