It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays only during the coolest hours of the day. During the period of vegetative rest, itís possible to take the bulbs or tubers out of the ground; the well cleaned and dried bulbs should be placed in a cool, dry and dark place; to be planted later on during the most indicated time of year.The Dutchman's breeches bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures.

Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Dutchman's breeches isn't an evergreen; during the spring it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 15 cm in height. The Dutchman's breeches should be used for rock gardens,

Fertilize Dutchman's breeches
Letís add some organic fertilizer or humus to the soil, when planting our bulbous plants, in the spring or autumn; later letís remember to start fertilizing when the flowers are withering, using, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants.

Water Dutchman's breechesTenere Umido
The Dutchman's breeches Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 1-2 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 1-2 glasses of water . To avoid that the bulb or tuber should become rotten, we must remember to avoid excessively abundant waterings, which keep the soil wet for a long time.

Pests Dutchman's breeches
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Mold Dutchman's breeches
These bulbous plants favour fairly heavy, averagely drained, not too humid, soils.
