Scented Acidanter. Cultivation and care
Bulbous plants are among themselvesfavorite for many florists. They are very easy to care for, so it is not at all problematic to plant them. Due to the fact that bulbous flowers of different species blossom from early spring to late autumn, it is possible to plant plants in the garden in such a way that the flowering does not stop, some will dry up and others will throw out buds.

In our latitudes it will not survive the wintering, so in the late autumn the tubers need to be excavated. "Fluffy Gladiolus", "beautifully flowered or Abyssinian gladiolus", "Gladiolus Muriel" - all these are the names that people have received from the people. Growing and caring for her is simple, so she takes root in the gardens of many florists.
The flower is really very similar to the gladiolus, butmore tender and elegant, besides it has a very strong fragrant aroma. Flowering begins in late July and lasts until mid-September. Peduncles reach a height of more than a meter, but they do not need a support, the plant is not even afraid of wind or rain. It feels good on drained and pre-fertilized soil. In summer, you need to water constantly, but do not allow waterlogging the soil, which so does not like acididera.
Cultivation and care involves regular fertilizing with mineral fertilizers and circumcision of wilted flowers. In this case, flowering will be moredurable and abundant. To the athlete looked beautiful, it can be planted in groups or immediately planted in lawns. In autumn only the peduncles are cut off, and the leaves are left as they feed the tubers. If the winter is warm, then the plant is poured with peat, straw or fallen leaves, which will save from the cold a flower like azidantera.
Care and cultivation in the regions where the winter is frosty,involves the excavation of tubers from the ground and their storage in a room at a temperature of 15 ° C. First, they are stored a month at a temperature of 20 ° C, when the tubers dry, you can remove all unnecessary and put them in paper bags with holes for ventilation.
