The Opera flower Is small in size; in summer it assumes a white colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Opera flower has a shrub- like development. Fertilization Opera flower
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. Exposure Opera flowerPosizione mezza ombra
These plants don't like cold weather, therefore in the Spring it is best to set them outside only when the temperatures are above 15įC. It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.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. Watering Opera flowerTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots. Treatments Opera flower
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. Soil Opera flower
For an optimum development of the plant it should be planted in a specific soil for acidophilic plants; these plants need a very good drainage. We remind to repot the plant every 2-3 years, to give the radical apparatus the possibility to grow in a balanced manner.
