Watering Strelizia albaTenere 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. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 buckets of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks .

Generalities Strelizia alba
Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. This plant in the spring assumes a white colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1,8 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Strelizia alba develops like a perennial herb.

Exposure Strelizia albaSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Strelizia alba in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. 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 correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring.

Treatments Strelizia alba
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.

Soil Strelizia alba
Let’s favour an averagely drained, soft and rich growing substratum.
