We suggest growing the the Saxifraga hirsuta outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather. These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year.

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 Saxifraga hirsuta
The Saxifraga hirsuta 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.
Adversity Saxifraga hirsuta

Substrate Saxifraga hirsuta
