Light Acaena microphyllaSole pieno
We advise cultivating the the Acaena microphylla outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures. These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.We suggest to position the the Acaena microphylla in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.

Cultivation Acaena microphylla
The Acaena microphylla is a plant for a rock garden. The Acaena microphylla Is small in size; in winter it assumes a greenred colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal.

Fertilize Acaena microphylla
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.

Water Acaena microphyllaTenere asciutto
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.

Pests Acaena microphylla
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 Acaena microphylla
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
