One of the standout features of 'Inticancha Maya' is its suitability for cut flowers.

'Alstroemeria 'Inticancha Maya' is also beneficial for attracting pollinators like bees and butterflies, adding ecological value to its ornamental beauty. Its long flowering period, vivid colours, and ease of care make it a must-have to elevate your garden design.

Planting Conditions

The Alstroemeria 'Inticancha Maya' thrives in a sunny to partially shaded position, basking in the warmth of the sun's rays. Find a spot in your garden where it can receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight each day. This ensures optimal growth and abundant blooms. If you live in a region with scorching Summers, providing some afternoon shade can help protect the plant from excessive heat. Remember to plant it in well-drained soil to prevent waterlogging. With the perfect balance of sunlight and soil conditions, the 'Inticancha Maya' will reward you with its vibrant and breath-taking display.

Watering & Feeding

When it comes to watering and feeding the Alstroemeria 'Inticancha Maya', a balanced approach is key. Keep the soil evenly moist, but avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, and ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogged conditions. As for feeding, a slow-release fertiliser applied in Spring can provide the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and abundant blooms. Additionally, a monthly dose of liquid fertiliser during the growing season can boost its performance. Remember, moderation is key in both watering and feeding to keep your 'Inticancha Maya' thriving.

General Care

General care for the Alstroemeria Inticancha Maya is relatively simple, allowing you to enjoy its beauty with ease. Provide it with a sunny to partially shaded location, well-drained soil, and moderate watering to keep the soil lightly moist. Regular deadheading of spent blooms not only keeps the plant looking tidy but also encourages continuous blooming. Additionally, the Inticancha Maya benefits from dividing every few years to maintain its vigour and promote new growth. With these minimal efforts, you'll be rewarded with a flourishing display of vibrant blooms and a plant that brings joy to your garden year after year.
