Kalopanax pictus k-ricinifolius

Kalopanax pictus I like the article

Light Kalopanax pictusSole pieno
We suggest to position the The Kalopanax pictus in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. 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 advise cultivating the The Kalopanax pictus outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.

Cultivation 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.

Fertilize 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.

Water Kalopanax pictusTenere Umido
Let's wet abundantly with about 2-3 buckets of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 2-3 weeks . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.

Pests 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.

Mold Kalopanax pictus
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
