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.
Light Ixia viridiflora
The Ixia viridiflora should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light. The Ixia viridiflora can't stand cold weather, therefore in general it should be grown in a sheltered place; during the Spring months, when the minimum temperatures are above zero, it can be moved outside.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.
Water Ixia viridiflora
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. 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.
Pests 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.
Mold Ixia viridiflora
