Fertilization Dorstenia foetida
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.

Generalities Dorstenia foetida
The Dorstenia foetida is a succulent plant. Dorstenia foetida isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 50 cm in height. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.

Watering Dorstenia foetidaTenere Umido
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 . We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 glasses 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 .

Treatments Dorstenia foetida
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.
