Arrowroot - how to choose a plant in a store

Let's say there are several plants in front of you belonging to the same species. I will use my stromant as an example. We put all three (or how many of them there you have) a pot with flowers next to each other and by eye determine the one with the most leaves. If the most magnificent turned out to be the most spoiled, you have to choose from the rest the least painful and tenacious at first glance. If after such a technique you are left with only one rash - the job is half done, no - look further, and when analyzing choose the lesser between two evils, look do not miss …

Arrowroot - acclimatization after purchase

And you need to do so that this beauty and health are not lost overnight. Therefore, we pack carefully or control the packaging process.

Growing arrowroot at home

If a plant of arrowroot, ktenante or calathea collects leaves, it means that she is satisfied with everything in the care, and if this does not happen, then you need to think about what is wrong. Arrowroot (ktenante, calathea, stromanthus) should be fed with a complex fertilizer containing not only nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, but also a set of microelements in a chelated form. The need for watering, more precisely in their frequency and abundance, directly depends on the humidity of the air and the rate of drying of the soil. The faster the earth dries up, the more often you need to water …

Growing roses

First of all, I try to buy a healthy plant. In the store, I check for pests. The size of the flower depends on the size of the wallet at one time or another.

Fuchsia - the secrets of growing

Fuchsia can be proud of her truly noble origins. The first plants were brought to Europe from Chile at the beginning of the 19th century, and since then, flower breeders have bred hundreds of varieties, most of which are combined with both simple and double flowers under the name hybrid fuchsia (F. x hybrida).

forcing bulbous
forcing bulbous

Forcing bulbous

The bulbs are selected large, healthy, dense to the touch. For early forcing, planting begins in September-October (flowering for the New Year), and for late forcing, in November (flowering for Christmas).

You need to find a spacious, preferably a clay pot, 2-3 times the height of the bulb. Necessarily with drainage holes. Drainage is poured at the bottom. Substrate for bulbs is taken as for seedlings, with a neutral or slightly acidic reaction, it must be sterilized! Deciduous humus or peat with the addition of sand works well.

In fact, there is an optimal option: Drainage and earth are poured into the bowl. Then it is compacted, pressed, tamped to make it half the height of the pot, onions are placed …

Fern Growing Secrets

Ferns are considered unpretentious plants in culture, probably this opinion was formed due to the ability of many species to tolerate drying out. Another plant would simply die, but the fern, after cutting off all the dried leaves (wai) and moistening the earthy coma, will start growing again. However, the ability to survive in extreme conditions and at the same time have an attractive, decorative look is not the same thing. For a fern, certain conditions must be created so that one could say about it - handsome! Fern is one of the oldest plants on earth. In nature, it grows under the canopy of a forest, where it is always humid and where direct sunlight does not penetrate, so ferns have no adaptations to retain moisture and protect them from the scorching rays of the sun. Based on this,and it is necessary to create appropriate conditions for their maintenance …

croton
croton

Codiaum (croton) - close-up

One of the most common and favorite decorative deciduous indoor plants. All crotons that are sold in the store belong to one species: Codiaeum (Croton) variegated Codiaeum variegatum. But suppliers of imported plants often omit the specific name, leaving only the genus name: Codiaeum and cultivars such as 'Curly Boy'. But in addition, the names on imported plants may not coincide with the names given to this variety by its author.

The distribution area of ​​codiaums is quite wide, and the climatic conditions are somewhat different in different places, this led to intraspecific changes, and within the varieties, in turn, to the formation of new forms. The forms arose as a result of the even greater ecological and geographical isolation of individual croton representatives …

Growing persimmon from stone

In winter, in January, after eating persimmons, I planted the seeds in a pots that were temporarily empty (before that, Coleus grew there), and a little later, in pots for amaryllis.

The temperature in the room is 18-19 degrees, near the window is slightly lower, in the kitchen the window is almost always ajar, even in winter. Watering - every 10 - 12 days. About a month later, in early February, two persimmon sprouts appeared on the kitchen window …

The bulb is oblong-ovoid, sometimes pear-shaped, pink-brown in color with a massive neck, which in some plants does not have a clear border with the bulb body. If you remove the upper scales, you can see an interesting play of color: it changes from almost white at the bottom of the bulb to dark pink on the neck …

Anthurium - features of cultivation

Anthurium cannot be called a very capricious plant, but just like a Tradescantia herb, it will not grow and bloom. It needs a special approach - special soil, moderate watering, good lighting.

One of the most important conditions for the successful cultivation of anthuriums is the correct choice of substrate. It should hold the plant well, retain moisture and nutrients, dry easily and allow air to pass through. Moreover, it should not quickly decompose, cake and thicken.

Placing flowers on the windowsill

Shelves and stands for flowers, whatnots, hangers - do it yourself.

Sooner or later, but in the life of many gardeners the question arises: “Where to put ?! The place is over! " Indeed, green pets have filled all available places and planes, and threaten to evict the owners from their legally occupied bed. Households in indignation shout that there could be fewer plants, but who will listen to them? How can you give up cacti, violets, ficuses and other beauties nurtured by such labor and love? Yes, and there is no need to refuse, because relatives are making noise, most likely, just for show, while they themselves secretly admire the green kingdom and proudly say to friends: “And we have such a monster! Half a room! " and casually examine less well-groomed specimens from these acquaintances …
