Care Saint paulia
The Saint paulia develops like a perennial herb. The development of the The Saint paulia is Saint paulia isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a bluepurpleredpinkwhite colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 30 cm in height.

Temperatures Saint pauliaPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the The Saint paulia , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The Saint paulia can't tolerate freezings, therefore it is best to grow it in a cold green house or in an apartment; during late Spring we can place them outside, when all risks of freezings are unprobable.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 Saint pauliaTenere Umido
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 2-3 glasses of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 1-2 weeks , when the soil is dry. To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.

Adversity Saint paulia
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 Saint paulia
These plants need to be grown in a soil which isnít too drained. Every 2-3 years we should change the soil and place the plant in a larger container.
