In this product, purchase of minimum five bulbs is compulsory. Bulbs can give any type of flowers, because this is mixed variety of gladiolus bulbs. One image of the bulb has been shown in the centre of product image.
Gladiolus bulbs are very easy to germinate and grow. Plant the bulb up to its neck in the potting mix or soil, water it and keep in sunlight to provide a warmer temperature for better growth. Bulb should not be grown in a very small pot. It must have at least 5 inch soil under it for proper growth of roots. Give less water until the stem appears. Within 3 weeks, you will observe new leaves emerging from the bulbs. When leaves appear, gradually increase watering in proportion to growing size of plant. But, we must keep in mind that over-watering may kill the plant. To remove any such kind of possibility, we must have sufficient drainage holes in bottom of the pot. Moreover, the soil must be mixed with perlite, vermiculite and castor cake compost for more flowering. At this point, the stem will grow rapidly and flowers will develop after it has reached full growth. It develops a very tall inflorescence which continues blooming for longer days. If you wish to make your garden full of flowers during winter, plant these bulbs in your garden or balcony. With start of summer, blooming will reduce. The plant’s bulb can be dug out and can be used for blooming during next winter season. It can reach Max . height of 3 feet.
