Rested in full sun. Put this richly flowering plant in a beautiful brightly colored pot on a terrace or balcony and enjoy!
It is early enough to water the osteospermum when it is almost dry. Do not let him stand with his roots in the water. Make sure there is a hole in the pot so that the excess water can always run away.
Pour the water directly on the earth and not on the flowers, they do not make it more beautiful.
To stimulate the formation of new flowers you have to cut the old one.
Plant food for tub plants is just as important as food for you. Without food you become weak, lifeless and you do not function properly. This also applies to container plants. Give plant food once every 2 weeks during the flowering period. This keeps the plant new leaf, good color and ensures that buds are formed. A richly flowering tub plant throughout the summer is the result.
Take an adapted potting soil that is well supplied with the necessary nutrients. Potting soil is also available to which water-absorbing polymers have been added. This means that you do not need to water your plant. Fill your pot to a few centimeters under the pot edge. This way the irrigation water attracts well into the ground.
Did you know that the Osteospermum closes its flowers at night to radiate during the day?
After you have been able to enjoy your tub plant for a whole summer, you can ensure that you can enjoy it the following year. This can be done by having the tub plant overwinter in a frost-free place. Tub plants can not stand the frost.
It is important that the plant is frost-free. This can be done, for example, in a cool spot in the house at approximately 7 ° C. Water the plant moderately so that the pot ball can not dry out.
It is possible that the plant drops all its leaves, as if it were dying, but this is not the case! This is the rest period.
A plant with little or no leaf evaporates almost no water during this rest period. So pay attention that the plant also gets very little water!
Starting in March, you can set the plant slightly warmer and lighter and new leaf buds will soon appear.
At the end of April, there is possibly the time to repot the tub plant. Add some clay so that a lot of moisture is retained. When the plant is in a pot, make sure there is a hole in the bottom so that the excess water can drain away!
Osteospermum on trunk is a beautiful terrace plant with lots of colorful flowers.
