Fertilize Dichroa versicolor
Letís remember to fertilize our shrubs often; we can fertilize enriching our soil with manure, at the end of the winter; or we can give it a fertilizer for flowering plants, every 20-25 days, when watering. If the shrubs are large or cover a large area, we can use a slow release granular fertilizer, to be used every 3-4 months. In the spring letís favour fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of a new vegetation and of flowerings.

Water Dichroa versicolorTenere Umido
The Dichroa versicolor Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 2-3 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 1-2 buckets of water . Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases.

Light Dichroa versicolorPosizione mezza ombra
During the winter months we can cover a portion of the soil near the roots with dry leaves or other mulch tissue; in this manner we will protect the plant from the harsh climate. It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays only during the coolest hours of the day.During this time of year the the Dichroa versicolor can be grown outdoors.

Pests Dichroa versicolor
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 Dichroa versicolor
These shrubs need to be cultivated in a quite drained, specific soil for acidophilic plants.
