Planting & Care
They are suitable for planting directly into a bed in a cool glasshouse which is kept just-frost-free, or for growing in pots, although many of them are a little tall for this purpose. After reaching the end of their growing season in late spring they can be dried off for the summer months.

Soil: Well-draining soil

Water: Regular watering during periods of growth.

Temprature: 68-77 F. (20-25 C.).

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer.

Care:
  • Corn lilies and other Ixia species are usually grown from corms; these should be planted on top of sand at a depth of 10 cm, and about 10 cm apart into a rich well drained soil.
  • The corms can be planted in spring for flowers at the end of summer or at the beginning of winter for spring flowers.
  • It is possible to grow Ixia from seed, though it may take more than three years for them to flower, simply cover the seed in soil after the last frost of spring.
  • Ixia members can be grown in either sunny or partially shaded areas of the garden.


Harvesting: Harvest the corms in fall, and store in dry peat at 35 to 40°F.

Care:
  • It is fairly easy to look after Corn Lily, African Iris, and other Ixia in the grden; they require regular watering whilst growing and flowering.
  • In very cold areas bring the corms indoors and store in a dry place; replant in the spring.
  • If you require more plants then the corms can be divided in the spring.
