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.The Purple queen should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light.

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.

Pests Purple queen
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.

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