These plants are grown in apartment or in a temperated green house; they can be brought outdoors when the minimum temperatures are above 15į C.

Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 2-3 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases. Pests 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.

These plants favour soft and very well drained soils. We suggest, every 2-3 years to repot the plants, changing the soil.
