It seems u don't know which nerine you have but looks like its a winter growing variety if it just started sprouting. Might flower next year if bulb is big enough.

Dear Ay Khan
Sorry to say I don't know the variety of Nerine Bulb but bulbs are in big size. At this stage, can I transplant my bulbs to large container?

I think you should wait till its bigger. I don't see the bulb size but from the foliage it seems the pot is fine for now. Sometimes being root bound helps early flowering. Transplant next year when dormant.

Not sure on these. However, most bulbs are natures way to adapt plants for less nutrition and water so I do not think it needs too much fertilizer. Maybe phosphate for stronger roots and some potash to encourage flowering. Most plants love sun so Nerine shouldn't be different. However, if it's been in shade move it gradually to full sun.

After discussion with Ay Khan Sb about Nerine Flowering. I can transfer my Nerine Bulb's in full sun and takes appropriate care. After one month I can get the result of Nerine Bulb. Now-a-days a flowering bud appears on my Nerine Bulb.
At this time I also need my friends suggestions and tips.
Here today fresh pictures of Nerine Flowering Bud

I don't know its Red Lycoris or Red Nerine. 3 Years back, I purchased this bulb from Pride Seeds Lahore. Owner of Pride seeds tell me its Nerine bulb.
So let's judge its Lycoris or Nerine but I am happy after 3 years its bloom.
