A new leaf is growing from one of the bulbs I am hanging. I am going to put it in a pot for my window. Has anyone had success doing this? Please let me know. Thanks! :)

In the past I have kept them growing indoors over the winter, then put them back out when it got warm enough. I had one plant for several years, never re- potted or fertilized. I think that are pretty tough?

It stayed petty small inside where there wasn't a lot of light, then when I put it out it got much bigger. Last year I didn't bring it in and it bit the dust. A friend of mine has big glass doors that face south, hers stay big through the winter.
