Fertilization Hippeastrum
Letís use a slow release fertilizer, or manure, when planting, mixing the product to the ground; during the spring letís mix, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants to our irrigation water, starting from the moment in which the first flowers are withering.

Generalities Hippeastrum
These plants are bulbeous. This plant in the winter assumes a red colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 50 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub.

Watering HippeastrumTenere asciutto
We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs. Letís avoid watering the The Hippeastrum excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water .

Treatments Hippeastrum
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.

Soil Hippeastrum
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
