Let's grow the the Lobivia backekergii in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. Succulent plants can also be cultivated in a cold green house, with temperatures which must be below 5įC for many species, but in this case itís necessary to keep them totally dry.Let's avoid exposing the The Lobivia backekergii to temperatures below 15įC.

In this period of the year, letís remember to enrich the soil of our succulent plants, using, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer; fertilizers for succulent plants must be poor in nitrogen to avoid them from producing too much vegetation which would be easily attacked by fungal diseases.

Irrigation Lobivia backekergiiTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the Lobivia backekergii every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. Letís remember that the succulent plants can withhold water inside their materials, therefore they need to be watered only when the weather is hot.

Adversity Lobivia backekergii
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
