These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Ornithogalum lanceolatum is small in size and 10 cm in height; in the spring it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
Exposure Ornithogalum lanceolatum
the Ornithogalum lanceolatum should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.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.
Watering Ornithogalum lanceolatum
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. 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.
Treatments Ornithogalum lanceolatum
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.
Soil Ornithogalum lanceolatum
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
Notes Ornithogalum lanceolatum
