Treatments Hoffmannia
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.

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