SOIL - TRANSPLANT

During the whole spring and summer period provide a liquid fertilizer with irrigation water, every two weeks, at medium doses and particularly poor in nitrogen.

They are plants that can not be pruned. Only those parts that are dried or damaged are removed to prevent them from becoming a vehicle for parasitic diseases.

The multiplication of Stromanthe can occur by seed or, more simply, by division of the plant.

MULTIPLICATION BY DIVISION OF THE PLANT

After flowering or at the end of winter divide the rhizomes using a clean, sanitized and sharp knife to avoid that the tissue is frayed, in several portions, each provided with at least 2-3 well-developed leaves and roots, treating the cut surfaces with broad spectrum sulfur-based fungicides. Each individual portion is quickly planted in individual pots using the same substrate used for adult plants and kept in the shade, at a temperature around 24 ° C and with a high humidity rate until the new buds begin to sprout. Since then they can be treated as adult plants.

Brown stains on the leaves, especially on the underside, could mean that it is in the presence of brown cochineal or cottonseed mealy bugs. To be safe, it is advisable to use a magnifying glass and observe and confront with the indicated photo. The brown cochineal appears with the body covered by a species of waxy coat of dark color while the cottony cochineal, with the body wrapped by a species of fluff fluffy. Also if you try to remove them with a fingernail, they come out easily.

Leaves that begin to yellow, appear dotted with yellow and brown spots

If the leaves begin to yellow and subsequently to these manifestations, they are curled, almost assuming a powdery appearance and fall, most likely you are in the presence of a red spider attack or spider mite, a very annoying and harmful mite. Observe carefully to note also subtle cobwebs especially on the underside of the leaves.

Remedy: increase nebulisations around the plant because the lack of moisture favors its development and eventually only in the case of infestations particularly severe, use specific chemicals. If the plant is not particularly large, it can also be tested to clean the leaves to mechanically remove the parasite using a wet and soapy cotton cup. Afterwards, the plant should be rinsed very well to remove all the soap.
