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. Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.Let's grow the The Crocus banaticus outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Irrigation Crocus banaticus
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 1-2 weeks can be enough using 1-2 glasses of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. 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.
