Indian shot I like the article

Exposure Indian shotPosizione mezza ombra
If you desire cleaning the ground from the bulbous plants after flowering, wait for the leaves to dry; later itís possible to take the bulbs out of the ground and place them somewhere dark, cool and dry, until the best season to plant them again. During this time of year we shouldn't worry about minimum temperatures, in fact the the Indian shot can bear temperatures a few degrees below zero.For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Indian shot in a partially shady place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.

Watering Indian shotTenere bagnato
We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs. Letís water the the Indian shot frequently and regularly; every 0-1 weeks we should wet the soil deeply, using 2-3 glasses of water , but avoiding wetting it too much.

Fertilization Indian shot
Letís use a slow release fertilizer, or manure, when planting, mixing the product to the ground; during the spring letís mix, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants to our irrigation water, starting from the moment in which the first flowers are withering.

Treatments Indian shot
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Soil Indian shot
Letís favour a humid, heavy, scarcely drained soil for these bulbous plants.
