Zephyranthes root pruning.

Hi.

I live at India where the temperature hovers around 30-40C almost everyday! Recently I had bought a pink Zephyranthes from a nursery. I wanted to transplant them to the pots. But they have developed very long roots that it\’s difficult to plant them in a bowl like container. I fear that they would die because of very less space for their roots to grow.

Is it advisable to prune the roots?? I don\’t have any big sized pot right now.

Thanks in advance.

You could trim 1/3 of the roots from the bulbs.
