  • Plant Gloriosa in soil based compost. JI No.2 is also very good. Gloriosa need heat to develop the shoots & roots. Place in a conservatory or greenhouse, water sparingly at first, then water regularly and feed weekly when in growth. After flowering, slow the watering down and then stop and allow to dry out. Leave them in the pots in a warm place. In very warm areas they can be grown outdoors in summer but must be brought back inside they are tender plants. Gloriosa are twining plants and will need support. They like a large deep pot but should only be planted a few centimetres deep. If you are unsure where the top is, plant the tubers horizontally. All parts of the plant, especially the tubers, are poisonous and should never be eaten.
