Corms of Acidanthera bicolor var. murielae Perry
were planted at three depths (4, 8, and 12 cm) and at four spring dates
(the third and fifth week of April, the second and third week of May). The
number and weight of cormels was examined in the total and marketable yield.
The highest total and marketable yield of cormels was obtained from planting in
the fifth week of April at a depth of 8 or 12 cm, and in the second week of May
at a depth of 12 cm.
