Planting and care

Cut back on wintertime watering
In summer, water well, but keep out of water logging situations.
Avoid exposing leaves to strong sunlight in the afternoon as it can lead them to curl.
If you want blossoms the following season as well, leave the dead leaves on the plant; they protect the rhizomes in the winter.
When you notice packed leaves in a container, repot in a larger pot. If you discover any pest attacks or diseases, use organic pesticides or fungicides.
