We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day. If necessary we can extract the bulbs from the ground, during the vegetative rest; after letting them dry we should place them in a cool, dry and dark place. During the most indicated season we can plant them again.The Notholirion campanulatum can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.
Care Notholirion campanulatum
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Notholirion campanulatum is large in size and 1 m in height; in the summer it assumes a pink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers.
Feed Notholirion campanulatum
Bulbous plants use nutritious substances stored from the previous year for their flowering ; this is why usually the soil should be enriched, during planting, with a slow release or organic fertilizer. Later we must fertilize with a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants, every 15-20 days, starting from the moment in which the first flowers are withering.
Irrigation Notholirion campanulatum
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 glasses of water . These plants don't need too much water; staying in a soil which is too damp, can easily cause the development of rotten in the bulbs.
Adversity Notholirion campanulatum
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Substrate Notholirion campanulatum
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
Cultivate Notholirion campanulatum
When wanted we can grow these plants in a vase. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
