It is a winter loving bulb, Jar or pot , it can bloom in both, if they are healthy they will produce a bloom , in LHR/KHI/ISL they are treated as disposable bulbs i.e. after bloom throw them away as they cannot store energy for next year bloom due to short winter season in our region, bulbs to be sown with tip out of soil, give less water and keep it on dry side. it needs good amount of light so put it outside , Dec/Jan sunlight is good for it. Need low temperatures less than 10C to feel healthy. Better to wait until Dec and then sow it.
