The Ricepaper plant Is large in size; in winter it assumes a greenwhite 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 Ricepaper plant has a shrub- like development. Fertilization Ricepaper plant
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.
