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. Fertilize 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. Light Tecophilaea cyanocrocusSole pieno
These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year. The Tecophilaea cyanocrocus should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light.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. Water Tecophilaea cyanocrocusTenere asciutto
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. 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. Pests 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.
