These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside. These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall.The Solanum crispum should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.
Generalities Solanum crispum
The Solanum crispum has a shrub- like development. The Solanum crispum is medium in size and 6 m in height; in the summer it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants are climbers, therefore they grow leaning against supports of all types.
Fertilization Solanum crispum
For climber plants to develop without problems, letís act at the end of the winter, or in autumn, adding some manure, or a slow release fertilizer to the ground. In the spring, every 25-30 days, letís add some specific fertilizer for green or flowering plants to the irrigating water.
Watering Solanum crispum
Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets 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 have a vigorous development; when the stem is wider it might need abundant watering during the long summer months.
Treatments Solanum crispum
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 Solanum crispum
We advise growing these plants in quite deep and soft soil with an elevated drainage.
