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.
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can take in the solar rays during the coolest hours of the day. We advise cultivating the the Urnplant in a covered place, in an apartment or green house, as they don't like temperatures below 15įC: during late Spring they can be moved outdoors.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 sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . 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.
