Drosera planting requirements

2011-08-30 21:42 Source: http: //www.flower-fans.com Author: Flower Soul

Drosera varieties are widely distributed, and each population has its own characteristics. Most of them have the characteristics of being wet, light and shade-tolerant.
Substrate: Generally, 2 parts of peat and 1 part of perlite or river sand can be used, and pure sphagnum or pure peat can also be used. The bulbous population can use granular soil, such as pot immersion planting can use 1 part of peat, 1 partMix of perlite or river sand.
Moisture: Use a water source with low mineral concentration to maintain a high humidity during the growing season. It is suitable to use the bottom of the pot for water supply. The plants should not be sprayed frequently to avoid the formation of "dewdrops" in the glandular hairs. The dormant period needs to be dry.But it cannot be dried out to prevent rotten roots.
Humidity: The air humidity of Drosera should be kept above 50%. Higher humidity can make the "dewdrops" of the glandular hairs bigger and more enjoyable.
Temperature: The suitable temperature for growth is 15-25 degrees. Dwarf populations, bulbous populations, and temperate populations can maintain growth at 4-30 degrees, and can withstand a low temperature of 0 degrees. Most of them will be dormant above 30 degrees. Tropical populations should be controlled at 10-38 degrees, need to keep warm in winter.
Illumination: Most sundew likes light. Adequate sunlight can make the plant colorful, but strong summer light must be shaded to prevent sunburn. No light will make the plant green.
Nutrition: In the growing season, use general compound fertilizer to dilute five thousand times and spray the leaves, 1-2 times a month. Fertilization is rather thin and frequent, and the concentration should not be too high, so as to avoid fat injury or even fat death.Consequences, do not fertilize at will if you have no experience. It is not recommended to use food to provide nutrients, so as not to affect the ornamental.

Cutting: Most drosera can be propagated using leaf cuttings. The whole leaf is cut from the mother plant, inserted diagonally or placed flat on a clean substrate, maintaining high humidity and bright light, about 1 monthIt can grow buds. Some varieties with strong roots and stems, such as Forked Leaf, Cape of Good Hope, Peacock, etc., can also be cut from root or stem, and the operation is the same as that of leaf cutting.
Winter Bud: For some varieties dominated by dwarf populations, under the stimulation of low temperature in winter, many pearl buds will grow in the center of rosette leaves, commonly known as winter buds. When the pearl buds mature, they will fall off and harvest them in time you can use wet toothpicks to dialTake, sown immediately after harvest the pearl buds are not resistant to preservation, can be placed on the surface of a clean substrate, maintain high humidity and bright light, usually budding in about 2 weeks.
Seeding: Most drosera will naturally produce many small seeds after flowering, and some varieties, such as drosera, need cross-pollination to set seeds. The seeds can generally be stored for about three years. When sowing, it can be directly planted.Sprinkle on the clean surface of the substrate Do not cover soil, keep high humidity and bright light, keep the temperature at about 25 degrees, and germinate in about one month.Varieties in temperate regions need low temperature stimulation to germinate easily. They can be sown in winter or spring, or refrigerated for a month after sowing.
