I would recommend planting your seedlings in a shaded
and fertile area outside so that the corm can become
acclimated to the seasons starting just after your last
frost this spring (almost now). This will give them a
good start on a great corm for next year, and if you give
them a good mulch this fall, you should have them flowering
probably next spring!

In my experience, too long in the hothouse puts plants on
a "wrong" dormancy/growth pattern because they don't get
synchronized with the temperature cycles outdoors.
