Temperatures ZebraplantPosizione ombreggiata
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. Plant which prefers shady spots, avoid exposing it to direct solar rays, especially during the hottest hours of the day.These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15įC.

Feed Zebraplant
During this period of the year it's good to fertilize our plants every 15-20 days; letís choose a specific fertilizer, for house plants, flowering or green ones, to add to the water used to irrigate. We should prefer fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour flowering and the development of new vegetation.

Care Zebraplant
These plants have a pendolous deportment. The Zebraplant is a perennial herb plant. The Zebraplant Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a green colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.

Irrigation ZebraplantTenere asciutto
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.

Adversity Zebraplant
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.

Substrate Zebraplant
Letís grow these apartment plants in a very well drained soil.
