Fritillaria striata

Hi everybody,

Just a quick question if anybody would be kind enough
to help. I have managed to acquire a bulb of Frit.
striata, and wonder if there is any special
requirement this species has? I have planted it in a
sandy/gritty loam and have started to water it, which
is much the same way I cultivate F. liliacea with
reasonable success. Any other thoughts? I ask as it is
always said to be a very difficult plant. I've also
managed to get some small F. gentneri bulbs and
propose the same treatment - does anyone have
experience with this one which suggests otherwise?

Very many thanks indeed,
