Feed Cornflag
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.

Care Cornflag
The Cornflag develops bulbs or tubers. Cornflag isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a pink colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 70 cm in height. The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development.

Irrigation CornflagTenere 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. Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy.

Adversity Cornflag
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.

Substrate Cornflag
We advise cultivating these bulbous plants in a soft and light, very well drained, soil.
