Light Dichroa versicolorPosizione mezza ombra
Avoid excessively sunny places; we suggest to put the the in a partially shady spot. When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw.These plants are rustic in the areas with a Mediterranean climate, therefore they can be grown outside.

Cultivation Dichroa versicolor
The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. Dichroa versicolor Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a bluewhite colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 2 m high. These plants are shrubs.

Fertilize Dichroa versicolor
To obtain a florid development it is important to remember to fertilize our shrubs periodically; in the spring letís use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, which will favour the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. We can intervene at the end of the winter, mixing a good dose of slow release organic fertilizer to the soil surrounding our plant. During the spring it is also possible to act periodically, with liquid or powder fertilizers, to add to the water when irrigating, every 20-25 days.

Water Dichroa versicolorTenere Umido
Water regularly, every 2-3 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 1-2 buckets of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Dichroa versicolor in a container, we should remember that it will have slightly different needs compared to a specimen grown in the ground: we should pay more attention to its water and nutritional needs and check more often for possible development of parassites.

Pests Dichroa versicolor
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Mold Dichroa versicolor
The Dichroa versicolor prefers quite drained soils, with a low PH.
