Irrigation Camellia japonicaTenere Umido
The Camellia japonica needs to be watered quite frequently, every 2-3 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 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.

Temperatures Camellia japonicaPosizione mezza ombra
We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day. We suggest growing the the Camellia japonica outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.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.

Adversity Camellia japonica
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.
