This plant, once common in horticulture, is now an extreme rarity which is seldom seen nowadays. In fact it needs care and attention to raise from seed. This takes a minimum of 4 years of careful cultivation before even the first few flowers appear. It makes no offsets and so seed is the only route by which the tiny bulbs can be raised. This species will always be expensive as it is so slow to produce.
A moist, but very well-drained, sandy, leafy soil is best. Slightly acidic soils outside in the garden are better than either limey soils or pot cultivation. These are perfect, sound, beautiful, nursery-raised bulbs in pristine condition but please be warned, this is naturally amongst the smallest of daffodil species with very small bulbs.
