Feed Crossandra nilotica
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 Crossandra nilotica
The Crossandra nilotica has a shrub- like development. The Crossandra nilotica Is small in size; in summer it assumes a redpink colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown.

Irrigation Crossandra niloticaTenere asciutto
Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots. 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 .

Adversity Crossandra nilotica
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.
