Brazilian plume flower leaves are curly because the concentration of fertilizer is too high and the roots are burned. Brazilian plume flower leaves can get sunburned after long periods of strong light in summer and need proper shade protection. As the temperature rises, it is necessary to water in time and make an adequate water supplement. Brazilian plume flowers grow quickly and need to be pruned to avoid the growth of large numbers of bacteria and pests. The following are details of Brazilian plume flower care for its leaves curly.

1. Proper fertilization

Adequate nutrient supplementation can promote the continuous growth of Brazilian plume flowers. When applying fertilizer to Brazilian plume flowers, the fertilizer should be diluted and the root burning phenomenon will occur if the concentration is too high. Fertilization should be controlled, and timely watering should be done to ensure that the soil is moist and the soil should be turned over to effectively promote the absorption of the roots of Brazilian plume flowers.

2. The light  

Brazilian plume flowers get sunburned and their leaves curl up after prolonged exposure to the sun. The Brazilian plume flower should be properly shaded in the summer when the sun is strong. The Brazilian plume flower is preserved in a ventilated and bright place, with proper sunlight scattering, so that the leaves can carry out sufficient photosynthesis and promote the growth and flowering of the Brazilian plume flower.

3. Moisture

Brazilian plume flowers like humid conditions. In the summer, when temperatures rise and evaporation speeds up, the flower's leaves curl up. In summer we need to do a good job of water supplement, and it can be watered once a day, to ensure that the soil is in a moist state. During the rainy season, do a good job of soil drainage, to avoid water.

4. Pruning

The Brazilian plume flower grows rapidly and needs to be pruned in time to reduce the consumption of excess nutrients. Remove some withered branches and old yellow leaves to increase air circulation and avoid the breeding of bacteria and insect pests. Spray insecticides in time to manage the water and fertilizer of Brazilian plume flowers to effectively promote their growth and flowering.

The yellow leaves of Brazilian plume flowers are caused by sunburn caused by strong sunlight. Apply fertilizer to the Brazilian plume flower each time to avoid the concentration being too high and the root burning phenomenon. When the soil becomes salinized, the roots of Brazilian plume flowers cannot absorb it as efficiently. Brazilian plume flowers grow rapidly and need to be sprayed with insecticides to prevent aphids and leaf spot disease. The following are details of Brazilian plume flower care for its leaves yellowing.

1. Illumination

Summer light is strong, a long time of sunshine can cause the sunburn of the leaf, leaf appears yellow .In summer, Brazilian plume flowers need to be properly shaded and protected. They should be maintained in a ventilated and cool place to ensure proper sunlight scattering, so that the photosynthesis of Brazilian plume flowers can be continuously carried out, and the continuous growth and flowering of the flowers can be promoted.

2. Proper fertilization

The leaves of Brazilian plume flowers turn yellow when they are fertilized with too high a concentration of fertilizer, causing roots to burn. Fertilization needs to be stopped and timely watering carried out tilting treatment to effectively promote the absorption of the roots of the Brazilian plume flower. Fertilizer should be diluted and used to promote the continuous growth of the Brazilian plume flower.

3. Soil  

Brazilian plume flowers like loose and fertile soil. When the soil becomes salinized during the maintenance process, resulting in a large loss of nutrients, the flower will develop yellow leaves. Brazilian plume flowers need to be turned over frequently to effectively promote root absorption and add sediment to increase soil permeability and effectively promote leaf recovery.

4. Diseases and insect pests prevention

Brazilian plume flowers, which have dense leaves and grow rapidly, are vulnerable to aphids, causing their leaves to turn yellow and wilt. They need to be treated with artificial dewormization in time, or they need to be watered with cigarette water into the soil. Brazilian plume flowers suffer from leaf spot disease and need to ensure air circulation and spray flusilazole once a week for effective control.
