Pleiones require good drainage and a sheltered spot in the garden. For winter protection, a mulch of pine needles works well. Pleiones may also be grown in pots . Any well-drained potting mix is suitable. When the growth begins in the spring, water just enough to moisten the soil. Don’t over water; warm wet soil will rot the shoots right off the bulbs! When the plants have developed their roots, feed regularly with balanced soluble fertilizer and keep the soil moist but not wet. Peter’s or fish fertilizer is suitable. Granular fertilizer may lodge in the base of the leaves and burn. When the foliage dies down, the pots may be allowed to dry out and should be stored where the temperature will drop to or slightly below freezing at least part of the winter.
