Seyrigia

It is a small genus that includes only 6 species. The name of this genus honors a French botanist André Seyrig. Seyrigia is a climbing plant, endemic to forests of Madagascar. It produces stems up to 3 m long, very branched, quadrangular or cylindrical, sometimes covered with a whitish down that protects the plant from the intense sun. It is a dioecious plant, which means it has both male and female flowers. Its inflorescences are very small, generally up to 0.5 cm in diameter, of a color that can vary from yellowish-white to red. Placed in a hanging vase, Seyrigia is perfect for embellishing any type of environment. Here are some easy tips for its proper care and cultivation: It prefers an exposure to the full sun or partial shade and requires an high level of air humidity. It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures, never below 5 °C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered and ventilated places during the winter period. Water moderately, only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, in autumn and winter once a month. A strongly draining soil is an optimal solution, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice, so that the water does not stagnate. Those are plants that do not need frequent fertilizations, so it is enough to dilute a specific fertilizer with watering once a year.
