Just getting started

Hi there. This is my first winter with these very nice plants. I have had some good luck so far with a couple of discounted potted bulbs. One has just sprung into bloom. Wow what a treat for mid-winter.
Question: The hard bit for me is watering “sparingly” while waiting for a shoot to emerge. My question: for a given bulb size, what amount is “sparingly”? 50ml? 100ml?
Perhaps it depends on the mix of the growing medium too... The two cheap pots have a richer darker mix. So far so good.
