These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Dipcadi serotinum is small in size and 30 cm in height; in the spring it assumes a orange colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
Temperatures Dipcadi serotinum
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. The Dipcadi serotinum can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.If necessary we can extract the bulbs from the ground, during the vegetative rest; after letting them dry we should place them in a cool, dry and dark place. During the most indicated season we can plant them again.
Irrigation Dipcadi serotinum
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 glasses of water . 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.
Adversity Dipcadi serotinum
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.
Substrate Dipcadi serotinum
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
Cultivate Dipcadi serotinum
When wanted we can grow these plants in a vase. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
