  • Humidity .It should be high, because you have to arrange hypoestes imitation of the native culture of the tropics.Should spray the plant every day throughout the year, and in the summer - several times a day.The water for this purpose take boiled, filtered or defend.Alternatively, you can put the pot with the culture in a pan filled with expande
    d clay moist.
  • Soil and capacity .Containers for planting choose a wide, low walls, medium size.To water does not stagnate when watering dishes on the bottom of the drainage layer is poured.Substrate for cultivation hypoestes should consist of two hours. The ground sheet 1 h. Peat 1 h. And 1 part humus. River sand.If you do not want to cook on their own ground, buy at the store variegated soil mix for houseplants.In any case, the substrate must be loose, fertile and slightly acidic.
