Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.We suggest growing the The Kalopanax pictus outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.
Care Kalopanax pictus
These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Kalopanax pictus is medium in size and 9 m in height; in the summer it assumes a green colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Kalopanax pictus develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree.
Feed Kalopanax pictus
Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted.
Irrigation Kalopanax pictus
The Kalopanax pictus needs to be watered quite frequently, every 2-3 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 buckets of water . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
Adversity Kalopanax pictus
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.
Substrate Kalopanax pictus
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
