Descriptif de la plante

Le mot de Rayon de Serre

Tiger foot morning glory is  a vigorous exotic vine whose leaves rival its flowers in beauty!!

Ipomoea pes-tigridis's deeply indented leaves are incredibly decorative and graphic, and their surprising shape has earned them the nickname "tiger's foot". The hairy stems are home to numerous small flowers in shades of pink and mauve; flowering starts in the first few weeks of life and can last all summer long!

Tiger foot morning glory is an annual, and reseeds itself with the seeds released from its flowers; over time, it quickly forms a veritable plant carpet covering your flowerbeds, or climbing up your walls and structures! Frost resistant, it will grace our gardens in many European gardens.

So, whether you're using it as ground cover, wall cover or a climbing plant, adopt this Ipomoea pes-tigridis, which is fierce in name only!

Growing tips

Repotting

Repotting

When you receive your plant, repot it in a pot slightly larger than the bucket, which must be well pierced. Avoid pot covers which prevent residual water from draining away and encourage fungal diseases. Choose a fine potting soil, ideally with added perlite or sand to lighten the substrate (do not use garden soil or acidic soil such as heather). Then plan two repottings per year (spring and autumn), gradually increasing the size of the pot and adapting it to the size of the root network (the roots must have room, but not too much as the plant must be able to dry out its substrate between waterings). This avoids having to add fertilizer, which always risks burning the fragile roots of the plants and making the plant wither as soon as the fertilizer is stopped.

Watering

Watering

Moderate watering: watering should be copious (the whole root ball should be wet), but wait until the substrate has dried deeply before watering again (you can stick your finger in the soil: as long as you feel moisture, do not water). Your plant will recover better from a lack of water than from an excess of water. Always water at the base of the plant, and do not mist it, because stagnant water in the armpit of the leaves favors cryptogamic diseases. If your atmosphere is too dry, put bowls of water nearby (above radiators for example), so that evaporation humidifies the air.

Pruning

Pruning

This plant is very easy to prune, which will make it branch out.

In case of pest attack

In case of pest attack

If your plants are under attack by aphids or other pests, the best way to control them is by hand. Change their soil, remove as many undesirables as possible by hand and then shower your plants with a strong stream of water to eliminate any eggs that may be present. Spray them (insist on the underside of the leaves) with liquid black soap diluted in water. Repeat the operation several times at a few days interval. Take them outside in good weather, rain, sun and wind will kill most of the aggressors!
