The time for the lunar calendar of the florist is Moscow.

The beginning of the lunar day is the time of moonrise.

Note: During the winter months, most indoor plants have a dormant period or significant growth retardation. The minimum care is watering, treatment from pests and transshipment if necessary: ​​if the plant was flooded, pests appeared. Loosening of the soil and sanitary pruning are also carried out as needed: if the soil in the pot does not dry out for a long time, the branches have dried out from a draft, etc. Other methods of care: top dressing, grafting, formative and rejuvenating pruning, transplantation, division, etc. should be postponed until the end of August, until the really bright days come. The exceptions are plants that are illuminated with lamps and continue to grow, blossom or bear fruit.

Note: do not take the grower's lunar calendar literally as a guide to action. If in October or January you see recommendations that "you can sow and plant some indoor plants" or "water and feed with organic feeding", then know that they are permissible only for experienced florists and applies only to plants in certain conditions. For example, it is permissible to feed fruit-bearing indoor trees monthly even in winter. Plants that are in warm conditions of long daylight hours in autumn and winter (with additional lighting) can also be fed and even transplanted. Experienced flower growers can successfully cut and re-root plants in winter, as well as sow seeds or carry out artificial pollination. In the general rules of plant growing, with the onset of autumn, a cold snap,reduction of daylight hours and light intensity, i.e. the transition of plants to the stage of dormancy or retardation of development, feeding, transplanting, grafting, pruning and other procedures is strongly discouraged.
