It grows fast, blooms huge flowers and then will wilt, best to cut the dead blooms off and it will start to grow leaves, water for a bit after this and then allow the bulb to hibernate. Easy to care for but has lots of steps.

Easy to care for. Don’t chop them down to the bulb after the flowers die off - the leaves are fun and dramatic and stay green for a long time.
