Adversity Acalypha reptans
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate Acalypha reptans
These plants need to be grown in a soil which isnít too drained. Every 2-3 years we should change the soil and place the plant in a larger container.
