Light Baby's breathSole pieno
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 Baby's breath in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.We advise cultivating the The Baby's breath outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.

Fertilize Baby's breath
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.

Cultivation Baby's breath
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Baby's breath is a plant for a rock garden. The Baby's breath is small in size and 5 cm in height; in the spring it assumes a pinkwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Water Baby's breathTenere 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 Baby's breath
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 Baby's breath
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
