Things you need to know about planting Alstroemeria Inca Safari
1.Keep the soil moist, as Alstroemeria produces the most blooms with moist soil and may become dormant if the soil becomes too dry. Don’t allow the soil to remain soggy, as excessively wet soil causes rot and fungal disease. Water the plant lightly during periods of dry winter weather.
2.Feed the plant in spring, using a general-purpose, time-release fertilizer. Apply the fertilizer at the rate recommended on the container and water the plant deeply to distribute the fertilizer. Repeat in midsummer and early autumn.
3.Spread 2 to 3 inches of mulch such as compost or shredded bark around the plant in spring. Mulch enriches the soil, keeps the roots cool, and extends the blooming period. Replace the mulch as it decomposes or blows away.
4. Pull the stems carefully after the blooms fade. Otherwise the blooms go to seed and blooming decreases. If the plants are immature and the stems don’t pull easily, cut them from the plant with pruning shears. However, pulling the stems is healthy for the plant because it stimulates new growth.
5. Divide Alstroemeria during spring, summer or fall if an older plant begins to appear woody, overcrowded, or nonproductive. Dig up a clump and pull the tuberous roots into smaller sections, each with at least four or five healthy roots. Plant the smaller sections in well-drained soil and full or partial sunlight.
