    Frequently Asked Questions

    Iris Eye of the Tiger bulbs should be planted in the early fall, preferably in September or October, before the first frost sets in. This allows the bulbs to establish roots before the winter and ensures they receive sufficient cold stratification, which is essential for their growth and flowering. By planting in the fall, the bulbs have ample time to develop a strong root system, leading to healthy growth and vibrant blooms in the following spring and summer

    To plant Iris Eye of the Tiger bulbs, follow these steps for successful cultivation.

    • Start by choosing a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight per day.
    • Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or debris and adding organic matter to improve drainage.
    • Dig a hole that is large enough to accommodate the bulb, ensuring it is deep enough to cover the bulb with about 2 inches of soil.
    • Place the bulb in the hole with the pointed end facing upwards.
    • Gently backfill the hole with soil, firming it around the bulb to remove any air pockets.
    • Water the newly planted bulb thoroughly and continue to provide regular watering during dry periods.

    While Iris Eye of the Tiger is not classified as highly toxic to pets, it is still important to exercise caution. Like other irises, the plant contains certain compounds that may cause gastrointestinal discomfort if ingested by dogs, cats, or other animals. Symptoms can include drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, and general stomach upset. If you suspect that your pet has consumed Iris Eye of the Tiger or is experiencing any adverse symptoms, it is recommended to contact a veterinarian immediately for guidance. To prevent potential issues, it's advisable to keep pets away from the plant and consider planting it in an area inaccessible to them.

    When planting Iris Eye of the Tiger bulbs, it is crucial to consider the appropriate depth to ensure successful growth. The general guideline is to plant the bulbs at a depth that is two to three times their own height. This usually translates to planting the bulbs approximately 4 inches deep in the soil. Planting at this depth provides adequate protection and insulation for the bulbs while allowing the emerging shoots to reach the surface easily. Additionally, the deeper planting depth helps promote stability and prevents the bulbs from being dislodged by wind or other factors. Remember to measure from the base of the bulb to the soil surface when determining the correct planting depth.
