Feed Beehive plant
During this period of the year it's good to fertilize our plants every 15-20 days; letís choose a specific fertilizer, for house plants, flowering or green ones, to add to the water used to irrigate. We should prefer fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour flowering and the development of new vegetation.

Irrigation Beehive plantTenere Umido
The Beehive plant needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 glasses of water . Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.

Temperatures Beehive plantPosizione mezza ombra
Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage. We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day.These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15įC.

Adversity Beehive plant
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Substrate Beehive plant
The Beehive plant favours not very drained soils, which can slightly withhold humidity.
