I would do that. In the end, it is just an experiment of how well these bulbs grow here.

Eucharis and hymenocallis planted, others are now stored along with the rest of the bulbs in a cool dark place with limestone (choona) dusted on them so they don't get fungus or mold

i don't know about nerine but the foliage of Lycoris dies down and in fall the flowers first emerge followed by foliage.

yes in mid summer or late summer their foliage die back and they flower in fall first and followed by foliage again but not sure about the nerines as I will plant them for the first time that's why I m getting very conscious
