I purchased a orange star plant, however it has pretty much dried and is returning to a bulb look. I expected from the plant tag that it would at least remain a green plant after removing the spent blossom stems. Have I not given it proper care?(I've kept it moist)
Will it rebloom next year in proper storage? Should I replant like a tulip blub?
Help! I really would like to extend it's life.

Since orange stars are perennials, it is possible to get them to bloom again next season. You should cut back the flower stalk to the base of the plant to allow it to flower the next season. This will let the plant put more energy into the bulb and store it for the next season. Once all the foliage has died back, the bulb should not be watered until you start to see new growth again in autumn. This should allow your orange star to bloom again next year!

Thank you for choosing Rocket Farms!
