Temperatures Lily of the IncasSole pieno
These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the The Lily of the Incas with non-woven fabric. Perennial plants mainly have a spring and summer development. During the coldest months of the year the aerial part can completely dry out, to come up the year after.Let's grow the The Lily of the Incas in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.

Care Lily of the Incas
These plants are bulbeous. This plant in the summer assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub.

Feed Lily of the Incas
In the spring let’s fertilize perennials periodically, using a specific fertilizer for flowering plants, to add to the irrigating water, every 20-25 days; or we can spread a slow release fertilizer near the plants every 3-4 months.

Irrigation Lily of the IncasTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Lily of the Incas every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 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. These plants display a pretty long period of vegetational rest. During this time it isn't necessary to water the plants.

Adversity Lily of the Incas
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 aren’t 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 Lily of the Incas
Locate these plants in a soft and deep, very well drained soil.
