Irrigation ShellplantTenere asciutto
It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases. We suggest watering the The Shellplant every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water.

Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day. We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage.Let's avoid exposing the The Shellplant to temperatures below 15įC. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind.

Adversity Shellplant
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Shellplant
These plants favour soft and very well drained soils. We suggest, every 2-3 years to repot the plants, changing the soil.
