Water Puya chilensisTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants with 2-3 glasses of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 1-2 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Light Puya chilensisSole pieno
Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. The Puya chilensis is a pretty delicate plant, which fears minimum temperatures below 15°C; during late spring it can be cultivated outdoors.Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.

Pests 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.

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

Seeing the quite contained development it’s possible to grow these plants in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
