Generalities Strelizia reginae
The Strelizia reginae Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a orangegreen colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Strelizia reginae is a perennial herb plant. Fertilization Strelizia reginae
Shrubs develop new shoots and prepare their flowers during the spring period, therefore we must remember, by the end of the winter, to give it a good dose of humus or mature manure, or granular slow release fertilizer, to be added to the soil at the foot of the plant. During the spring we can choose a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to mix with the irrigating water, every 20-25 days. Exposure Strelizia reginaePosizione mezza ombra
These plants don't like cold weather, therefore in the Spring it is best to set them outside only when the temperatures are above 15°C. It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.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. Watering Strelizia reginaeTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. 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. Treatments Strelizia reginae
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. Soil Strelizia reginae
For these shrubs it’s necessary to choose a rich and deep substratum , which presents an excellent drainage.
