All bulbs need some period of rest. Even if you bring it inside, it will need to go through a dormancy period of several weeks. You will need to gradually cut back on water until the foliage dies away. Once the foliage dies, cease watering and store in a cool place for several weeks. After a few weeks begin introducing water once again and you should start to get some new foliage.
