Sandersonia aurantiaca

Sandersonia aurantiaca I like the article

Exposure Sandersonia aurantiacaSole pieno
For a correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring. During the period of vegetative rest, itís possible to take the bulbs or tubers out of the ground; the well cleaned and dried bulbs should be placed in a cool, dry and dark place; to be planted later on during the most indicated time of year.For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Sandersonia aurantiaca in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.

Generalities Sandersonia aurantiaca
The Sandersonia aurantiaca develops bulbs or tubers. Sandersonia aurantiaca isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a orange colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 60 cm in height. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.

Fertilization Sandersonia aurantiaca
Letís add some organic fertilizer or humus to the soil, when planting our bulbous plants, in the spring or autumn; later letís remember to start fertilizing when the flowers are withering, using, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants.

Watering Sandersonia aurantiacaTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . To avoid that the bulb or tuber should become rotten, we must remember to avoid excessively abundant waterings, which keep the soil wet for a long time.

Treatments Sandersonia aurantiaca
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Sandersonia aurantiaca
We advise cultivating these bulbous plants in a soft and light, very well drained, soil.
