Here in the hot, dry Fresno area, Ferraria do well in the ground in areas 
that get no summer irrigation at all. I gave some to a friend who waters all 
her plants diligently--and she killed them.

I don't know what to tell you. Here in Berkeley, they are 
trully weedy; they've taken over my front yard, and they 
spread in the botanical garden. The grow in full sun in well 
drained soil with little water and complete summer dryness.
