These plants are bulbeous. When growing these plants tend to go up, developing very little in width, and they tend to have a columnar development. This plant in the spring assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Temperatures Ixia viridiflora
Let's grow the the Ixia viridiflora in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. These plants can be put outdoors only if any danger of freezings has gone by.If you desire cleaning the ground from the bulbous plants after flowering, wait for the leaves to dry; later itís possible to take the bulbs out of the ground and place them somewhere dark, cool and dry, until the best season to plant them again.
Irrigation Ixia viridiflora
We suggest watering the the Ixia viridiflora every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs.
Adversity Ixia viridiflora
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Substrate Ixia viridiflora
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
