I have found this species to be a good grower for me in my 'Frit House'. This is my oldest plant and its offspring. It lives in a 2 litre plastic pot filled with very gritty compost. It gets watered three times a year, once at the beginning of December, once in February as it begins to come through the surface and lastly once now at flowering time. It is then left alone under cover.

It produces seed each year and they germinate readily the following spring, on the surface of the same gritty compost with a light covering of vermiculite.

Watering regime

Wow! Just three times year. I give mine a splash whenever I'm watering the other plants - predominantly narcissus. Have I got it horribly wrong? My plants are in pots outside as I haven't assembled my Access frame yet.
