Care of the plant Tulipa or Tulip

The genus Tulipa, family Liliaceae, comprises 100 species of bulbous plants native to Europe and Central Asia. The variety of its flowers is immense, due to the multiple races obtained especially in Holland, which is the main exporter of bulbs to the whole world.

Common name: Tulip.

They are bulbous herbaceous plants that reach 70 cm in height. They have elongated, fleshy, glossy green leaves. The bowl-shaped flowers have 6 petals and can be of many colors (depending on the variety).

They are used to form groups of bulbous plants, on slopes, in rockery, in pots for patios, terraces and balconies and as cut flowers.

La Tulipa needs full sun exposure. The minimum temperature is 8-10 ºC.

The soil should be light and contain abundant organic matter and coarse sand.

Start watering when the leaves sprout and stop watering when the flowers fade. Some varieties need stakes so that the flower does not fall.

Fertilize every 15 days with mineral fertilizer from when the leaves sprout until the flower withers. When the leaves are completely dry, you have to dig up the bulbs, wash them to remove the earth and store them in a dry and dark place, better with sawdust. They can be left buried but each year the flower will be smaller.

The main enemies are aphids, mites and fungal diseases.
