Cultural Topic.

We are now in the rainy season when our plants are subjected to heavy rain downpours. Care must be taken to avoid the onset of plant diseases and attacks from pests. Routine inspections are required to detect trouble and to take corrective action. Plants should be well drained. Ensure growing media is in good condition and do not hesitate to repot if necessary. Some plants may need to be brought under cover to avoid crown rot and in some cases tissue and root rot. Insects are prevalent at this time so do look out for these harmful ones and take appropriate control measures
