I dug the bulbs up, then cut the roots and took off most of the dirt. I now have them hanging w stems and leaves attached. I figured to let nutrients go back to the bulbs. Is this right to do? Thanks! :)

I take it you are in an area where the plants would not survive the winter outside. If you have a really sunny window and they are normally container grown, they can be wintered over inside. Here is some info for storing the bulbs over the winter.
