Watering Veltheimia bracteataTenere 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 Veltheimia bracteata
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 Veltheimia bracteata
We advise cultivating these bulbous plants in a soft and light, very well drained, soil.
