These lush plants, in fact, are often found where the cold climate is present at high altitude, or where the climate is warm. At the beginning of spring, especially the houseplants begin to put new buds, when this happens the panthees need careful treatments with fertilizers. As soon as the plants begin to put the new shoots, in fact, it is necessary to immediately take steps to increase the watering, since, with the increase in temperatures, the water will tend to evaporate.

Our beautiful evergreen pot plants are divided into two main types, those that suffer from the cold and those that do not have problems and can stay outside in the garden or on the terrace even during the winter season. Plants that do not suffer from the cold, such as cypresses and pinaceae, leave without problems and except for strong and sudden frosts, they almost always spend the winter without problems. The broad-leafed evergreens, on the other hand, such as some famous houseplants such as ficus, potos or kentia, are plants to which we must pay close attention as soon as the first cold arrives.
When the temperature drops, these plants should be promptly sheltered and taken inside the house or in a heated greenhouse. The non-woven fabric that is sometimes used for lemons and plants such as cycads for some plants may be insufficient and in any case is not an equally valid solution to protect them. For the positioning of evergreen plants we choose a bright area away from cold currents, which allows the plant to receive so much light without suffering from sudden and dangerous temperature changes.
