- The right location for the black-eyed Susanne
Preparation for wintering
Cut the plant back to 50 centimeters. You can use the cut green shoots as cuttings for propagation.
Examine the plant for diseases and pests and cut off any yellow and dry leaves.
Care during the winter
The ideal winter temperature is ten degrees Celsius. Avoid strong temperature fluctuations.
During the winter, the black-eyed Susanne needs little care:
- Pour sparingly
- Never let it dry out completely
- Do not fertilize
- Check for pests regularly
You can recognize a pest infestation by the fact that the leaves are hanging or turning yellow. If the infestation is severe, it is better to dispose of the climbing plant before the pests spread to all other plants in the house.
Do not plant out before the end of May
The black-eyed Susans are only allowed to go outside when no more night frosts are to be expected. This is usually the case after the Ice Saints at the end of May.
Tips & Tricks
Make the black-eyed Susanne lighter and a little warmer as early as February. By pulling it forward, the flowers develop earlier. On warm days with more than eight degrees, you can put the climbing plant outside for a few hours.
