Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 2-3 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, we can interrupt watering, and let the plants perish. Pests Lady's slipper
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there aren’t flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
