Water Sarcococca hookerianaTenere Umido
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. The Sarcococca hookeriana 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 .

Cultivation Sarcococca hookeriana
The Sarcococca hookeriana develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the winter assumes a pinkwhite colouring; it is small in size and can reach 80 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Sarcococca hookeriana develops like a shrub.

It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays only during the coolest hours of the day. 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.During this time of year the the Sarcococca hookeriana can be grown outdoors.

Pests Sarcococca hookeriana
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 Sarcococca hookeriana
Let’s favour an averagely drained, soft and rich growing substratum.
