|F. bucharica is a perennial with broadly-lance shaped or lance-shaped to ovate, gray-green leaves. The flowers are borne on stalks. Each stalk may have up to 10 wide cup-shaped, nodding white flowers, veined with green. They are 3/4 inches long. Native to the Middle Eastern countries.
The large, skunky-smelling bulb is rodent-repellent, and is very succeptible to bulb rot if improperly stored. For best results, plant bulb on its side, at a depth 4 times the diameter of the bulb. Water moderately while in growth, but reduce to almost dry when bulb is dormant. For container plants, repot yearly in fresh soil.
Second year and older plants should be fertilized monthly with half strength fertilizer.
