|Light Helleborus orientalis
continental : We suggest a quite sheltered location, so that the plant can be exposed to sunrays only during the coolest hours of the day.
alpine : Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to sunrays during the coolest hours of the day.
mediterranean : We suggest to locate these plants in bright places, where they can receive direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.
continental : The Helleborus orientalis needs very frequent watering; during this period of the year we advise watering even every 0-1 weeks using 1,5 litres of water, trying to keep the substratum always slightly damp.
alpine : We advise frequent watering, every 1-2 weeks using 0,5 litres of water, so that the soil is always a bit humid.
mediterranean : The watering must be very regular and frequent, using 2,5 litres of water, so that the soil is always slightly damp, avoiding excesses and water stagnation. A good rule is to wet every 0-0 weeks.
Fertilize Helleborus orientalis : In the summer letís fertilize periodically, using a fertilizer for flowering plants, to add to the irrigating water every 10-15 days; we can otherwise use a slow release fertilizer, to spread near the plants every 3-4 months.
Pests Helleborus orientalis : During the summer months it is best to apply precise treatments, specifically against each type of parasite, to be used only when we have already noticed the presence of fungus or insects on our plants; these treatments should be applied during the coolest hours of the day. In general during this period of the year an infesting of ticks and rust is very likely to occur, because its development is favoured by dry climates.
