The yellow is more than likely because the plant isn't getting enough light. You will need to find a way to give it stronger light for a longer duration.
Most well-known bulbs (tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and crocues [corms]) need at least six hours of natural sunlight daily in order to do well. Under artificial light, they will need for the light to be closer to them and to be exposed to them much longer.
If, after you've given your plants adequate light, the plant remains yellow, then you'll need to see if you might have given it too much (or too little) fertilizer. Usually bulbs don't need very much fertilizer, if at all.
