Care Widow's-thrill
The Widow's-thrill is developed like a succulent plant. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Widow's-thrill Is medium in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a yellow colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.

Temperatures Widow's-thrillSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15įC.We can grow a large part of the succulent plants in a cold climate; some species can endure temperatures below 5įC, but only if the soil stays completely dry.

Irrigation Widow's-thrillTenere asciutto
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 4-5 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 glasses of water . These plants are very resistant to droughts; letís avoid watering excessively; during the winter months we can avoid watering the plants located where thereís a cold climate.

Adversity Widow's-thrill
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.

Substrate Widow's-thrill
Letís prefer soft and incoherent, with elevated drainage soils.
