  • Growing instructions: Plant from August onwards. Half fill the planter with the compost. Place the bulbs with the nose upright and cover with more compost. Water sparingly so the compost is moist. Be careful not to overwater. Place the planter in a light position (18-20ºC). Once in flower move to a cool, brigh position to prolong life. Turn occasionally as the flowers will grow towards the light. Keep compost moist at all times. After purchase store in a cool and dry place.
