Temperatures Puya alpestrisSole pieno
For a balanced development of the the Puya alpestris it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.The Puya alpestris is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild.

Care Puya alpestris
Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. This plant in the spring, summer, autumn, winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Puya alpestris develops like a perennial herb.

Feed Puya alpestris
In the spring let’s remember to fertilize our perennial plants, using a slow release granular fertilizer, to add in one solution every 3-4 months. If desired we can also use a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix with the irrigation water every 20-25 days.

Irrigation Puya alpestrisTenere asciutto
Let’s water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Adversity Puya alpestris
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.

Substrate Puya alpestris
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
