Q.I believe my plant is in the Lily family. What do I do to keep it alive after it has bloomed?

Anonymous added on August 14, 2020 | Answered

It bloomed beautiful and large orange flowers during spring. I continue to water it once a week but the leaves are dying and the blubs are drying up. It’s an indoor plant. How do I keep it alive until next spring and will it bloom again?
