Irrigation Brahea armataTenere asciutto
We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry. We suggest watering the the Brahea armata every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water.

Care Brahea armata
The Brahea armata has an arcuate development. Brahea armata Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a orange colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 7 m high. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree.

Temperatures Brahea armataSole pieno
Let's grow the the Brahea armata in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds.These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the the Brahea armata with non-woven fabric.

Adversity Brahea armata
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 aren’t 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.

Substrate Brahea armata
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
