Temperatures Musk mallowSole pieno
Let's grow the The Musk mallow in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. Since the foliage is used to be eaten, letís use specific insecticides and anticryptogamics, far from the harvest period.Let's grow the The Musk mallow outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Care Musk mallow
The Musk mallow has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. This plant in the summer assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. These plants are perennial herbs.

Feed Musk mallow
During the spring months letís fertilize our plants periodically, every 15-20 days, using a fertilizer rich in nitrogen. When desired, it is also possible to use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil every 3-4 months.

Irrigation Musk mallowTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Musk mallow every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses 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. Medicinal plants can be used fresh or dehydrated; if we want to harvest them to put them aside dehydrated, letís get information regarding the balsamic period of the plant we have chosen, rather when the plant has a higher quantity of active principles.

Adversity Musk mallow
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 arenít 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 Musk mallow
Letís prefer dissolved soils, with an excellent drainage.
