Strelizia nicolai

Strelizia nicolai I like the article

Watering Strelizia nicolaiTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. 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.

Exposure Strelizia nicolaiPosizione mezza ombra
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. These plants don't like cold weather, therefore in the Spring it is best to set them outside only when the temperatures are above 15°C.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.

Treatments Strelizia nicolai
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.

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