D. canariensis is hardy in zone 6, but
should be covered for winter. In zone & it needn't this.
It likes direct sunlight, the soil should be well
drained, (not to let the tuber rot in early Spring), planted about 20 cm (8'')
deep . The tuber without leaves needs no watering in the ground, and when
it takes off, should be watered frequently,
If your plant produces offsets next year(s) I'm the
first in a queue to buy them from you.
