Physalis fairy and how to take care of it

1554291748627

I created this painting with the idea of using a plant called physalis for inspiration. I thought the shape of the fruit with its cocoon were very striking to start designing an outfit.

After several attempts on drawing paper, I came up with the idea of a fairy creature with pointy ears and wings using watercolour and acrylics for the background.

As for how to get the real plant here are a few steps :

Planting and sowing physalis

Physalis is planted indifferently in Autumn or in Spring.

  • If your region is known for the cold of its winter, best plant in spring.
  • Physalis loves growing in full sun but not if it’s too warm.

You can find physalis planted in shrub or flower beds, in pots and also in the vegetable patch.
