Water Fritillaria ponticaTenere asciutto
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. We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 glasses of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 1-2 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed.

Cultivation Fritillaria pontica
Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Fritillaria pontica isn't an evergreen; during the spring it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 45 cm in height. The Fritillaria pontica develops bulbs or tubers.

Light Fritillaria ponticaPosizione mezza ombra
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 Fritillaria pontica bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures.

Pests Fritillaria pontica
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 Fritillaria pontica
We advise cultivating these bulbous plants in a soft and light, very well drained, soil.
