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. For a balanced development of the The Hibiscus manihot it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.During the spring the The Hibiscus manihot can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric.
Feed Hibiscus manihot
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.
Care Hibiscus manihot
Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. The Hibiscus manihot develops like a shrub. Hibiscus manihot isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a yellow colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 1,5 m in height.
Irrigation Hibiscus manihot
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry. 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.
Adversity Hibiscus manihot
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.
