The bulb multiplies each year. At the end of the cycle, the mother bulb dies to allow bulbils to grow, multiply and bloom.
After about 4 years, it is suggested to separate the bulbs and replant them on another piece of land.
These bulbs can be planted in a drained soil with a friable texture, dry during periods of rest and without excess moisture during the vegetative period. It is important to have a good sunshine on your plot.
