Care Mickey Mouse plant
The Mickey Mouse plant has a shrub- like development. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Mickey Mouse plant is medium in size and 1,5 m in height; in the summer it assumes a red colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Temperatures Mickey Mouse plantSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. The Mickey Mouse plant can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.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.

Irrigation Mickey Mouse plantTenere Umido
The Mickey Mouse plant 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.

Adversity Mickey Mouse plant
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 Mickey Mouse plant
These plants are planted in a soft, but quite heavy, and not excessively drained soil.
