Hibiscus for breeding in flower beds is propagated by cuttings of annual semi-matured shoots in July-August, as well as seeds, grafting, and layering. Cuttings are easily rooted in the greenhouse, and in greenhouses, the success of cuttings depends on the weather.
Sliced cuttings are dipped in powder for rooting and planted under the glass so that the leaves that appear soon will not touch the glass (otherwise they may become moldy). After the cuttings are rooted, they begin to ventilate, and then, already hardened, they are planted in light nutrient soil.
Dieffenbachia grows well on a light fertile and acidic substrate, for example, on a mixture of compost earth, acid peat and sand in a ratio of 1: 1: 1. In the spring-summer period (from March to September).
Dieffenbachia is transplanted into a slightly larger pot: a young plant – every year, an older one – after 2-3 years.
In very large plants, only the top layer of the substrate is changed. The location is required bright, but without direct sunlight. Dieffenbachia is thermophilic, grows best at a temperature of 17-25 degrees, and is very sensitive to drafts. The plant is regularly watered, making sure that the substrate remains constantly moist.
No less important for dieffenbachia and humidity, so the plant is often irrigated with soft water. Do not intensely feed Dieffenbachia. From January to March, top dressing is carried out once a month, best of all with a weak solution of organic fertilizers.
Low-growing forms are fed from April to September every 3-4 weeks, high – every 10 days, using fertilizers with low nitrogen content. During the development of young leaves and flowering, more intensive dressing is carried out. In the fall, top dressing is stopped completely.
The lower leaves turn yellow and curl at low temperature or cold drafts.
Aronica dragon (Arum dracunculus) belongs to the aroid family. This is a perennial with a rough bract of leaf called a veil. Arik winters in the form of tubers. The plant is relatively cold-resistant, but if grown in open ground, then you need to protect the tubers from winter cold earthen mound.
They rake the mound in the first half of May. During the growth period, the plant is moderately watered, every 2-5 weeks they are fed with multicomponent fertilizer and irrigated. Aronia needs a semi-shaded area. In autumn, when the leaves turn yellow, watering is stopped.
Sicilian onion (Allium siculum) is a perennial bulbous plant related to garlic. To grow it, you need a semi-shaded area with permeable soil. Planted in the fall. Grows on a grass flower bed and flower bed. Unpretentious.
