I'm so sorry for your loss.

These plants are usually spring plants. They start to grow around the time of the first frost. They give a burst of life and they will go dormant.

If it's been a while since the leaves sprouted, you could pull out the bulb, wash it off, and see if you can force it to grow in water. Many times stores will sell them around spring time and Easter and they are blooming in water.

You can also remove them from the soil and allow them to be dormant in a dry, dark place and plant them again in the cold months so they can be ready to bloom again in spring.

The thing about hyacinths is that they have the energy to bloom once a year for a few years, but eventually the bulb will be spent.
How long have you had it? Has it already bloomed?
@sarahsalith It was my moms, she had it outside at her house, yes it bloomed, it was beautiful, she passed, so I took the bulbs and transplanted them into a pot about 6 months ago, she gave me two long leaves, but they died so I cut them off, and nothing else after that, I’ve moved it around the apt to find a better place for it, but nothing
