The winter-hardy Pheasant's Parrots, a subspecies of the Blasenspieren (also called snowball-like Blasenspiere), grows on average up to 3.5 meters high and wide. However, you can easily reduce the pheasant's foot by regularly cutting back in early spring or autumn. However, you should not carry out a radical cut, but rather often resort to pruning shears.
»Tip 2 - Fertilizing:
Fertilize a pheasant only when needed. Otherwise, it is sufficient if you work in the spring a little compost around the plant stem.
»Tip 3 - Watering:
As far as casting is concerned, you do not have to pay much attention to the pheasant's foot. It actually only needs some water in midsummer during prolonged periods of drought.
