This plant in the summer assumes a greenpurple colouring; it is large in size and can reach 3 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The Princess-flower grows erect, developing a short stem with a small crown, usually roundish. These plants are shrubs. Feed Princess-flower
During the spring letís regularly use a fertilizer rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour the development of the new vegetation; fertilization is done by adding fertilizer to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days. Temperatures Princess-flowerSole pieno
Let's avoid exposing the The Princess-flower to temperatures below 15įC. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind. Let's grow the The Princess-flower in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage. Irrigation Princess-flowerTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Princess-flower every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases. Adversity Princess-flower
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. Substrate Princess-flower
These plants need a soft, dissolved, not very drained soil with an acid PH. Every 2-3 years we should remember to repot the plant in a slightly larger container.
