✿ The plants grow really well in loamy soil with good drainage. Avoid excess water, as the bulbs may decompose due to water logging. Use peat moss, compost, or decomposed manure to fertilize them.
✿ They require a balance of sunlight and shade. Planting them in harsh sunlight may result in lighter colors. Deadheading the plants will give them a tidy appearance.
✿ When the plant slips into dormancy, you can remove the foliage.
