Fertilize Dietes bicolor
Bulbous plants use nutritious substances stored from the previous year for their flowering ; this is why usually the soil should be enriched, during planting, with a slow release or organic fertilizer. Later we must fertilize with a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants, every 15-20 days, starting from the moment in which the first flowers are withering.

Cultivation Dietes bicolor
These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers. The Dietes bicolor Is large in size; in summer it assumes a yellowgreenwhite colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form.

Water Dietes bicolorTenere asciutto
These plants don't need too much water; staying in a soil which is too damp, can easily cause the development of rotten in the bulbs. Water sporadically, with 1-2 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks .

Pests Dietes bicolor
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
