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 Cryptanthus zonatus 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.

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