african blood lily

I have growing in conservatory a Blood Lily. It has flowered with huge flowers and is 3 ft high with large leaves. What do I do with it now? Do I cut it down or stop watering and let it die back?

After the flowers have faded, you can either keep your blood lily green all year round, or you can encourage it to go dormant. To encourage dormancy, don’t cut the leaves, but instead stop watering and consider moving the plant to a cooler location so that the foliage will die back by itself.
