The Cuphea cyanea have a one or two year development cycle. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Cuphea cyanea Is small in size; in summer it assumes a orange colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
Exposure Cuphea cyanea
the Cuphea cyanea should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Cuphea cyanea 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.These plants have an annual development, therefore when it becomes cold they deteriorate, and get completely eradicated.
Watering Cuphea cyanea
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses 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. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.
Treatments Cuphea cyanea
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 Cuphea cyanea
We advise locating these annual plants in a dissolved soil, with an elevated drainage.
