The Narcissus Nylon grow in a potting soil of pretty good loam, perlite, and peat moss routinely watered over winter and kept thoroughly dry in the summer, though I suspect they might be better off with the occasional dampening given that they do just fine in the ground. They get all of what sun there is in the winter. Soil in this area is somewhat acid.
