Care Leathery polypody
The Leathery polypody Is medium in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a green 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 Leathery polypody develops like a fern. Feed Leathery polypody
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. Temperatures Leathery polypodyPosizione mezza ombra
The Leathery polypody can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric. We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight 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. Irrigation Leathery polypodyTenere Umido
The Leathery polypody needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 glasses of water . Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots. Adversity Leathery polypody
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. Substrate Leathery polypody
The Leathery polypody favours not very drained soils, which can slightly withhold humidity.
