Hippeastrum rutilum

Hippeastrum rutilum I like the article

Watering Hippeastrum rutilumTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. These plants don't need too much water; staying in a soil which is too damp, can easily cause the development of rotten in the bulbs.

Exposure Hippeastrum rutilumSole pieno
The Hippeastrum rutilum should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. These plants don't like cold weather, therefore in the Spring it is best to set them outside only when the temperatures are above 15C.If necessary we can extract the bulbs from the ground, during the vegetative rest; after letting them dry we should place them in a cool, dry and dark place. During the most indicated season we can plant them again.

Generalities Hippeastrum rutilum
These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Hippeastrum rutilum is small in size and 30 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a red colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Treatments Hippeastrum rutilum
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.

Soil Hippeastrum rutilum
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
