Care Century plant
This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. The Century plant is a succulent plant. Feed Century plant
During the beautiful season itís good to enrich the soil of our succulent plants; we advise using a fertilizer rich in potassium and phosphorous, but poor in nitrogen, because this chemical element doesnít help the development of succulent plants, making them too soft and full of water. Temperatures Century plantSole pieno
The Century plant can't tolerate freezings, therefore it is best to grow it in a cold green house or in an apartment; during late Spring we can place them outside, when all risks of freezings are unprobable. For a balanced development of the The Century plant it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.A great part of succulent plants can endure low temperatures, even below 5įC, but if weíre growing them in a harsh climate we must avoid watering. Irrigation Century plantTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. Succulent plants can also endure long periods of time without watering; usually as the climate gets colder they need less water, while during the summer months they should be watered abundantly . Adversity Century plant
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. Substrate Century plant
These succulent plants need to be located in an accentuated and drained substratum. We suggest repotting every 2-3 years.
