Feed Cretan brake
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.

Care Cretan brake
The Cretan brake develops like a fern. The Cretan brake 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.

Irrigation Cretan brakeTenere Umido
Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots. The Cretan brake 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 .

Adversity Cretan brake
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 Cretan brake
The Cretan brake favours not very drained soils, which can slightly withhold humidity.
