Irrigation Lollipop-plantTenere asciutto
If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender. Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 2-3 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 buckets of water .

Care Lollipop-plant
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Lollipop-plant Is small in size; in spring it assumes a yellow colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Lollipop-plant has a shrub- like development.

Temperatures Lollipop-plantPosizione mezza ombra
We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day. To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves.These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15°C.

Adversity Lollipop-plant
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.

Substrate Lollipop-plant
For these shrubs it’s necessary to choose a rich and deep substratum , which presents an excellent drainage.
