Water Watsonia beatricisTenere asciutto
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. Water sporadically, with 1-2 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks .

Cultivation Watsonia beatricis
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Watsonia beatricis is large in size and 1 m in height; in the summer it assumes a red colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers.

Light Watsonia beatricisSole pieno
We suggest to position the the Watsonia beatricis in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. 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.These plants don't like excessively harsh temperatures, with night-time minimum temperatures below 0C. during the spring in general they are grown in a covered place, moving them outdoors, or uncovering them, when there isn't any danger of sudden temperature drops.

Pests Watsonia beatricis
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.

Mold Watsonia beatricis
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
