The Urnplant is a perennial herb plant. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Urnplant Is medium in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a greenred colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
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 15įC.Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage.
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. Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.
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.
