Fairyduster I like the article

Temperatures FairydusterSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves.These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15°C.

Care Fairyduster
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Fairyduster Is small in size; in autumn it assumes a white colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Fairyduster has a shrub- like development.

Feed Fairyduster
Shrubs develop new shoots and prepare their flowers during the spring period, therefore we must remember, by the end of the winter, to give it a good dose of humus or mature manure, or granular slow release fertilizer, to be added to the soil at the foot of the plant. During the spring we can choose a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to mix with the irrigating water, every 20-25 days.

Irrigation FairydusterTenere asciutto
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 2-3 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 buckets of water . If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender.

Adversity Fairyduster
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.

Substrate Fairyduster
For these shrubs it’s necessary to choose a rich and deep substratum , which presents an excellent drainage.
