gladiolus winter or summer growth: when to water again?
« on: October 12, 2018, 07:07:41 AM »
I sowed Gladiolus from the seeds exchange in January and got some seedlings. who rested at the beginning of the summer.


 G. cunonius
 G. watermeyi (I got a single seedling, really tiny ..)
 G carneus,
 G. splendens
G. meliusculus
G. atroviolaceus

 it is not always easy to know if their growth is winter or summer. should I water them to make them leave?
bulbils were very small for some species, I would not want them to dry out.

G. carneus makes me shoot 3 (out of 20) after watering .. the others, nothing.

then I water or I do not water?
are they really winter growing?

thank you Michel.
 so G cunionus and splendens must stay dry until about April?

my other summer Gladiolus are still in leaves, so I worry about them

phew, I finally have 1 G. meliusculus that appears
