Generalities Mountain ebony
The Mountain ebony develops like a tree. They tend to develop like erect small trees. This plant in the spring assumes a white colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 4,5 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Exposure Mountain ebonySole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Mountain ebony in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. For a correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring.Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.

Watering Mountain ebonyTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks . To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.

Treatments Mountain ebony
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.

Soil Mountain ebony
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.
