Briefly about leaving

Ahimenez needs bright lighting, but direct rays should not be allowed. During active growth, the temperature should not fall below 20 degrees (optimally around 23-24), and in winter the rhizomes are kept at 12-14 degrees. Achimenes is watered in the summer as the soil dries up, without flooding the plant, but also without overdrying the soil; in winter, watering is reduced. You need high air humidity, but you should not spray achimenes (put the pot on a pallet with wet expanded clay).

Achimenes is fertilized twice a month with complex mineral fertilizers a month after the appearance of the first shoots and until the end of the flowering period. At the end of flowering, the plant begins to prepare for the dormant period: the trunk and leaves dry out, rarely watered. Achimenes rhizome is transplanted in early February into nutrient soil. Achimenes propagates by cuttings, seeds or division of the rhizome.
