These plants are bulbeous. The Lachenalia glaucina has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. This plant in the winter assumes a blue colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 30 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Temperatures Lachenalia glaucina
Let's grow the the Lachenalia glaucina 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 Lachenalia glaucina
We suggest watering the the Lachenalia glaucina 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 Lachenalia glaucina
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 Lachenalia glaucina
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
Cultivate Lachenalia glaucina
