Queen of the night I like the article

Irrigation Queen of the nightTenere 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.

Temperatures Queen of the nightPosizione mezza ombra
We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day. 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.

Care Queen of the night
The Queen of the night is developed like a succulent plant. These plants have an erect, columnar development. The Queen of the night Is large in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a white colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.

Adversity Queen of the night
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 Queen of the night
Letís prefer soft and incoherent, with elevated drainage soils.
