I like the articleGeneralities Cypress
This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 80 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. They tend to develop like erect small trees. The Cypress develops like a shrub. Fertilization Cypress
In the spring period we suggest fertilizing bonsai periodically, every 20-25 days, using a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of new vegetation and of floral buds. On the market there are specific fertilizers for bonsai plants, which in general arenít very concentrated, to avoid excess fertilization, which could damage the plants cultivated in small containers. Exposure Cypress
The Cypress plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures. Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day.We should remember to move the vases in a quite sheltered place, during the hottest weeks of the summer, to avoid the water supplies from becoming excessive. Watering Cypress
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks . Bonsai are usually grown in very small containers, this is why itís best to check for water supplies often, to avoid very damaging periods of drought. Treatments Cypress
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Soil Cypress
Locate these plants in an averagely drained, not too humid soil.
