Harts' Hint
"Acidanthera are safest grown in pots. Bring the pots indoors for the winter and move back outside in the Spring once the risk of frost has passed. If potted, they make wonderful Autumn houseplants too."

 

  • Position your corms in full sun to partial shade in well-drained, moist soil.
  • Plant your corms 10-16cm (4-6") deep.
  • Space your corms 10cm (4") apart. 
  • If planting in pots, we advise: 
    • 7 to 10 bulbs for a 20cm pot
    • 13 to 15 bulbs for 30cm pot
    • 20 to 25 bulbs for a 50cm pot.
  • Plant in pots or directly in the garden. 
  • See 'Care Instructions' for protecting over the winter months.
