Izhar did you plant the sparaxis this fall? Is it a good idea to keep them in the ground or pull them out once leaves yellow?

I did not plant any sparaxis this fall in my soil bed but some flowers popped up. Which means they can naturalize in lahore. But i left many in ground last year, Rest were rotten by rains.

This is the first time I have grown them... the way they are growing and multiplying, I will keep 2 out of five in the bed and dig the other after the leaves dry out completely...
