Drimiopsis

Its name literally means "similar to Drimia", another genus of a bulbous plant, with which it has several common characteristics. It is also a succulent, consisting of a semi-exposed bulb, from which oval and fleshy leaves branch off. The leaves often, as they grow, take on a particular "spotted" effect which, according to botanists, is the plant's way of camouflaging itself and defend against phytophagous insects. At the apex of the central stem, small white and fragrant flowers bloom that help liven up both your apartments and rock gardens, upholstering interiors and exteriors with its extraordinarily suggestive exotic touch! Here are some easy tips for its proper care and cultivation: It requires exposure to full sun or even partial shade, as long as it still receives a lot of light during all seasons. It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures, which should never go below 8 ° C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered places during the winter period. It is advisable to always keep the soil moist enough, never dry, to prevent the bulb from drying out. Pay attention to stagnant water that could cause rot. We suggest a strongly draining soil as an optimal solution, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate. They do not need frequent fertilizations, it will be sufficient to dilute a specific fertilizer with watering once a year.
