Text taken from gardens-spaces:

should be lighting the keenest possible myrtle at any time. If it is placed more than 30 to 60 cm from a sunny window, it withers for lack of light. Turn it frequently to ensure it a steady growth.

In order to keep a port harmonious, myrtle trim. Remove large bulky shoots that detract from its appearance. Pinch terminal buds regularly to make some healthy subjects thick.

All varieties of myrtles grow well in the usual atmosphere of a living space in summer. Stay outside in sunny location will make it more robust. Plan a winter rest at temperatures around 7 ° C. This plant is hardy on the Mediterranean coast.

Always use soft water. In times of growth, water thoroughly, without leaving the mixture to dry and without water saturation either. Systematically empty the saucer. Reduce the frequency of intake as temperatures fall in autumn. In periods of rest, although the wet mixture to each watering, but allow it to dry for 2.5 cm before a new contribution.

Enrich ordinary liquid fertilizer fortnightly from the third month that the myrtle is in the same pot and only in times of growth.

regularly Repot in spring, during the resumed growth. Always use a slightly acid compost. A base mixture of compost and leaf mold, peat or peaty soil is suitable. Carefully tamp soil around the roots and bury the stems at the same depth they were in the old pot. When a lodge myrtle in a pot of 20 cm, simply repeat the mixing surface every spring.

Good culture !
