Care Small-leaf spiderwort
Small-leaf spiderwort Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a greenwhite colouring; the adult specimens are small in size and reach 25 cm high. The Small-leaf spiderwort has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. These plants are perennial herbs. Feed Small-leaf spiderwort
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 Small-leaf spiderwortSole pieno
Let's avoid exposing the The Small-leaf spiderwort to temperatures below 15įC. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind. Let's grow the The Small-leaf spiderwort 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 Small-leaf spiderwortTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Small-leaf spiderwort 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 Small-leaf spiderwort
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 Small-leaf spiderwort
These plants favour soft and very well drained soils. We suggest, every 2-3 years to repot the plants, changing the soil.
