Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage. The Opera flower can't stand temperatures below zero; they should be grown in cold green houses or at least in a place where they are sheltered by the wind; when every risk of late freezings has gone by we can place them outside or remove the protections.It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.

Treatments Opera flower
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Soil Opera flower
These plants prefer acid, very soft soils, with average drainage, which can maintain the dampness, with an acid PH. Every 2-3 years letís repot the plant, placing it in a slightly larger container than the one before.
