Fertilize 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.

Water Beehive plantTenere Umido
Let's wet abundantly with about 2-3 glasses of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 1-2 weeks . Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.

Light 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. Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can take in the solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.We advise cultivating the The Beehive plant in a covered place, in an apartment or green house, as they don't like temperatures below 15įC: during late Spring they can be moved outdoors.

Pests 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.

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