Watering Ipomea batatasTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks . Before harvesting and using them, letís be informed on the balsamic period, rather the period in which the active principles are present in a greater quantity in the plant we have chosen.

Exposure Ipomea batatasPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. For a correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring.Letís remember that a large part of the leaves of the medicinal plants can be used for alimentary use, therefore letís use insecticides and anticryptogamics for agricultural use, far from harvest season.

Treatments Ipomea batatas
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Ipomea batatas
These medicinal plants prefer slightly heavy soils, with an average drainage, and too humid.
