The Psylliostachys suworowii 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 Psylliostachys suworowii
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.
