Snowdrop I like the article

Feed Snowdrop
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.

Irrigation SnowdropTenere Umido
The Snowdrop needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 glasses of water . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.

Temperatures SnowdropPosizione mezza ombra
These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce. We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day.We suggest growing the The Snowdrop outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.

Adversity Snowdrop
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.

Substrate Snowdrop
These plants need a scarcely drained soil, which can remain slightly damp.
