Puya chilensis

Puya chilensis I like the article

Irrigation Puya chilensisTenere asciutto
Letís 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.

Temperatures Puya chilensisSole pieno
For a balanced development of the the Puya chilensis it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Puya chilensis 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.Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.

Care Puya chilensis
The Puya chilensis develops like a perennial herb. 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 1 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Adversity Puya chilensis
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 chilensis
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
