This plant in the spring assumes a blue colouring; it is small in size and can reach 10 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The Tecophilaea cyanocrocus has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. These plants are bulbeous. Feed Tecophilaea cyanocrocus
Letís use a slow release fertilizer, or manure, when planting, mixing the product to the ground; during the spring letís mix, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants to our irrigation water, starting from the moment in which the first flowers are withering. Temperatures Tecophilaea cyanocrocus
Let's grow the the Tecophilaea cyanocrocus outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero. Let's grow the the Tecophilaea cyanocrocus in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.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 Tecophilaea cyanocrocus
We suggest watering the the Tecophilaea cyanocrocus 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 Tecophilaea cyanocrocus
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 Tecophilaea cyanocrocus
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
