Black Taros sun or shade

ihrtdahliasJuly 19, 2010

Hello, I bought 2 Black Taros today and put them in pots on my deck in almost full sun. The nursery said they should be Ok if I keep them watered. Does anyone have any tips on these beautiful plants. Do I fertilize and with what?

Thank You, KayC

Grown on terraces like rice paddies in full sun in Hawaii. Sold here as an aquatic. So: the more sun and warmth the better, with plenty of moisture. Will have to be overwintered indoors.

watch for spider mites when you overwinter them indoors. They seem to be beloved by them.

Thank you for the replys, is there anything I can do to prevent spioder mites. I dip my dahlia tubers in a bleach water solution, would this help? Thanks so much, Kay
