Plant Care

The tubers should be planted with last year's leaf scar facing up. The tubers should be placed 2 inches deep and 10 inches apart in light, loamy soil with a pH of between 6.8 and 7. In warmer climates, tubers can be soaked in water for a few hours to promote proper propagation.


A vernalization period (period of cold) will promote better and faster floral production. If the start time for floral production is pushed forward, the plant will produce more flowers over the growing season.

Soil and Irrigation:

Keep the soil moist while the plant is actively growing. Make sure the soil is well drained to prevent root rot. Light, loamy soil is ideal.


Use a fertilizer for tuberous plants every 2-3 weeks while the plants are actively growing. Do not fertilize in the winter as the plant is dormant.


Juvenile plants are susceptible to birds.
