The Howea forsteriana develops like a shrub. The Howea forsteriana develops long arcuate leaves ; the deportment is typical of palm trees , with a pretty erect stem in the lower part, bringing an arched crown. This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1,2 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.
Temperatures Howea forsteriana
For a balanced development of the the Howea forsteriana , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The Howea forsteriana is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild.Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.
Irrigation Howea forsteriana
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Adversity Howea forsteriana
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Substrate Howea forsteriana
