REVEALS ITS GENEROSITY

LIGHT

DIDI is ideally developed in places illuminated by filtered light, but it belongs to the club of plants that stand low-light conditions.

WATER

DIDI likes to be watered regularly which means that you should water it again whenever the surface of the soil in the pot is slightly dry. You can control the frequency of watering by dirtying your finger to feel the moisture of the earth. Never cease to drain excess water from the watering so the soil will never become soaked and you should make sure that no water is kept in the bottom of the decorative pot. The prolonged contact of this water with the roots of DIDI is a risk, as they can lead to its rotting.

IT’S NOT A DEFECT IT’S A FEATURE

A little bit like grandmothers, it does not stand draughts … such a style this one. Leaves with brown tips or edges may indicate that the air around it it’s too dry. Spray DIDI with water to increase the moisture content. “White little spots” like cotton and sticky tracks on the leaves? It’s cochineal. Clean DIDI leaves with well-soaked kitchen paper in a solution of 1 L of water with a few drops of dishwashing detergent and two tablespoons of olive oil. Keep DIDI under your eye and remove, through the same process, any spots that are recurring. One or two yellow leaves over a year probably represent the life cycle and they will only be leaves at their end of life, but you should inspect the underside of the leaves for the presence of tiny spiders or the presence of webs. In this case proceed as described above for the case of “white spots”.
