How to grow
Under glass grow in loam-based compost with added sharp sand in full sun. Reduce water as leaves fade and keep just moist when dormant. Intolerant of root disturbance so only repot when congested. Plant in autumn with neck of bulb just above soil surface.
Propagate by seed sown at 19-24� C in autumn or remove offsets in late summer
