Cebu Blue Pothos Care in Detail

Cebu Blue Pothos Care & Propagation - Growing Guide 2021

Cebu Blue Pothos Watering

In terms of aesthetics, the best propagation method of Cebu blue Pothos is hydroponics. So how often does the Cebu blue Pothos cultivated like this need to be watered? Although watering is a very common way of daily care, parents are really "surprised at the sight if they don't know"! Look at the following watering methods. Is there "frightening the baby"? Watering Cebu blue Pothos is actually watering every day! However, this is not to let parents pour water directly into the vase, but spray water on the leaf surface of Cebu blue Pothos with a kettle. In this way, it can clean the dust of the leaves and facilitate the breathing of Cebu blue Pothos; Second, it can reduce the leaf temperature, increase the air humidity of the small environment, and make the plant grow more healthily. In addition, Cebu blue Pothos in normal growth does not need to change water frequently, but should add water when the water level drops. The added water temperature should be consistent with the room temperature, so it is best to place it indoors for one or two days before adding water.

Cebu Blue Pothos Soil

When culturing Cebu blue Pothos, we should choose a good soil for it, so that it can grow better and faster. Therefore, we should choose a slightly acidic sandy loam that should be loose, drained, fertile and rich in organic matter. We can also make our own soil preparation for culture matrix, or use the soil in the garden to plant Cebu blue Pothos, which is mixed with a small amount of peat and rotten agricultural fertilizer. When it is prepared into loose and fertile soil, it can be planted with good drainage.

Cebu Blue Pothos Light

Although Cebu blue Pothos likes sufficient light, we need to pay attention to the great impact of strong direct light on Cebu blue Pothos during propagation. Especially in summer, if the shading measures are not taken in time, the plants may wither or even die.
Cebu blue Pothos is resistant to negative, so it only needs simple light. propagation in the living room can survive well. However, although Cebu blue Pothos is resistant to negative, it is also particular about light. No wonder many people's Cebu blue Pothos do not grow well.
In fact, although Cebu blue Pothos is resistant to negative, it just means that Cebu blue Pothos can survive without sufficient light, but it does not mean that Cebu blue Pothos does not need sunlight. Sunlight is the condition for all plants to survive. No plant does not like sunlight, so we also need to give Cebu blue Pothos short sunshine at ordinary times, Only in this way can the leaves of Cebu blue Pothos be larger and greener.

Cebu Blue Pothos Temperature

Cebu blue Pothos is a plant growing in the tropics, so its suitable temperature is 15-28 degrees. In winter, we should keep the indoor temperature above 10 degrees. This temperature can make Cebu blue Pothos safely pass through the whole winter. If Cebu blue Pothos stays at a temperature lower than 5 degrees, its leaf surface will fall off, So we must pay attention to propagate cebu blue Pothos.

Cebu Blue Pothos Humidity

Cebu blue Pothos likes the environment with high humidity, so you can spray more water on the leaf surface, stem and air root of green rose when you are free. The humid environment such as toilet is more suitable for it. However, Cebu blue Pothos should not be watered too much. Ponding is easy to rot roots. Generally, the leaves are soft, drooping and wilting, but it should be watered thoroughly.

Cebu Blue Pothos Fertilizer

When we propagate Cebu blue Pothos, fertilizer and water are the most important. Nitrogen and potassium fertilizer are the most important fertilizer. In spring, Cebu blue Pothos grows most vigorously. At this stage, we need to thin fertilizer and water and spray foliar fertilizer every 7-10 days. In autumn and winter, Cebu blue Pothos starts to grow slowly and even stops growing. At this time, it is necessary to reduce the number of fertilization for Cebu blue Pothos. From May to September, it is the growth season. It needs to apply chemical fertilizer once every two months and liquid fertilizer once every 10 days, If there are too few plants, a large amount of liquid fertilizer should be applied, and the solid fertilizer can no longer be used, so as not to cause root burning of Cebu blue Pothos. Cebu blue Pothos is generally watered once every 5-6 days, only a small amount each time. In summer, the number of watering should be increased, and in autumn and winter, the amount and number of watering should be reduced.

Cebu Blue Pothos Pruning

If you plan to Cebu blue Pothos pruning, you should stop watering two days in advance to facilitate basin removal. When removing the pot, take out the whole Cebu blue Pothos, remove the original soil and trim the roots, then put it in a new flower pot and add an appropriate amount of nutrient soil. After replacement, it shall be properly trimmed and sorted to make it look new. After adapting to the new environment, it shall be maintained normally.
Stopping watering can separate the soil from the basin wall and facilitate the removal of the basin, which is easier for Cebu blue Pothos pruning. Then you can prepare new flower pots and soil. You can go to the market to buy some nutritious soil, which is convenient and worry-free.
You should carefully take Cebu blue Pothos out of the flower pot and remove the original soil. By the way, check its root system, cut off rotten roots, dead roots and curly roots, or cut off the old roots.
After pruning, you can put Cebu blue Pothos in a new flower pot, and then add the prepared nutrient soil to closely combine the root with the soil. The upper soil shall be slightly lower than the edge of the pot as far as possible to facilitate later management and watering.
After Cebu blue Pothos pruning, its shape cannot be avoided to be messy, and it should be properly trimmed. So that it can take on a new look. After adapting to the new environment, it can carry out normal maintenance and management.

Cebu Blue Pothos Propagation

Cebu Blue Pothos Care & Propagation - Growing Guide 2021

Cebu Blue Pothos Cutting Propagation

(1) Cebu blue Pothos stem insertion method
This Cebu blue Pothos cutting propagation is generally carried out in spring and autumn festivals. It is proposed to select annual branches with bright leaves, thick leaves and strong growth, and cut stems with a length of about 15 cm and 2 ~ 3 nodes as cuttings. When cutting cuttings, do not hurt the air rooting. After cutting, we should insert it into plain sand in time, with the depth of 1 / 3 of the cuttings, pour enough water and place it in the shade, or shade the seedbed of Cebu blue Pothos cutting propagation. We can spray water on the leaves twice a day to keep the soil and air moist. When the temperature is above 25 ℃ and half shade, it can take about 15 ~ 20 days to take root and grow leaves.

(2) Cebu blue Pothos leaf interpolation
This Cebu blue Pothos cutting propagation uses Cebu blue Pothos leaf cutting. The advantage is that the plant shape is not destroyed. The method is to select the robust leaves in the middle and upper parts of the branches, cut them from the base of the petiole with a knife, and then insert them into the water or matrix. Water rooting fast, suitable for a small amount of family reproduction. When Cebu blue Pothos is inserted, the water depth of petiole should be 1 ~ 1.5cm. Too shallow, if the water is not supplemented in time after evaporation, the leaves wilt; Too deep, the petiole is perishable. Change the water once 5 ~ 7 days after planting, and the planting can be carried out in about 50 days. The cutting substrate of Cebu blue Pothos cutting propagation should be mixed with fine sand and slag. Before planting, the substrate should be disinfected by exposure or boiling water. When inserting, tie the hole with a Bamboo stick to avoid damaging the petiole. Pour water after inserting, and pay attention to humidity and ventilation. This Cebu blue Pothos cutting propagation germinates slowly and takes about 6 ~ 7 months.

Cebu Blue Pothos Division Propagation

Cebu blue Pothos grows fast. Even if you don't take care of it, it also grows fast, and the root system gradually becomes developed. A small pot can't meet its growth needs. At this time, Cebu blue Pothos division promotion is needed.

If a Cebu blue Pothos grows too lush and the basin is still small, their roots will "fight" and entangle each other in the soil. Over time, there is not enough space for the root to develop, which will cause the root respiration to be blocked. The root respiration is not smooth, which will cause many problems, such as yellow leaves, wilting and low growth, Today, let's talk about how to isolate Cebu blue Pothos.
Before the Cebu blue Pothos division promotion, we should first prepare the necessary tools. Naturally, pots and tools are indispensable. If your new pots are small, you can prepare more. If you don't want to trouble, you can prepare a large pot to save the trouble of dividing plants later. In addition, we also need to prepare the soil and put some soil into the new pot bottom as the base soil, The soil should be mixed with pearl stone to create a breathable environment.

After we have prepared the Cebu blue Pothos division propagation, we begin to sort out the whole pot of Cebu blue Pothos plants. First, cut off the yellow leaves with scissors, and cut off the too lush leaves. After splitting, we should not leave too many leaves, which will absorb too much nutrients and affect the adaptation speed of Cebu blue Pothos to the new environment after splitting. The so-called more leaves, The more nutrition will be absorbed. The roots do not adapt to the new environment, and the nutrition is naturally absorbed slowly. If the nutrition supply is not timely, it will cause yellow leaves. The nutrition absorbed by the roots is not enough, and the leaves will not grow well. In this way, there is no need to divide.

Then we can gently hold the branches of Cebu blue Pothos and slowly lift them up. In this way, they can be pulled up by roots, and they are pulled out with the soil. Gently pat the soil. At this time, you will see that the dense roots of Cebu blue Pothos are intertwined. At this time, if you don't straighten out the roots, you can't divide them, We need to remove Cebu blue Pothos gently along their roots. This step can only be removed with our own hands, not with the help of other tools, so as not to hurt the roots of Cebu blue Pothos and fail to grow normally.

After we sort out and divide the roots, we should divide them into plants. I prefer small pots. I will divide them more, find the stems and branches connected to the roots, disassemble them and slowly pull them out. Other equal division methods are the same, and then divide the plants into Cebu blue Pothos, put them in the basin, put the mixed soil in and water them, Put it in a ventilated and cool place for stocking, and Cebu blue Pothos division propagation is completed.

Cebu Blue Pothos Propagation in Water

Cebu blue Pothos propagation in water is a very common culture method, which is to breed with water. The maintenance method is very simple. We can cut strong branches for cutting and hydroponic culture, and there should be air rooting on the branches. The whole Cebu blue Pothos can also be propagated in water. The roots should be washed clean before hydroponic culture, and the unhealthy roots can be trimmed before hydroponic culture. In addition, pay attention to changing water when cebu blue pothos propagation in water.

The Cebu blue Pothos propagation in water method is to cultivate with water. Usually, the common method of cultivating Cebu blue Pothos is to cultivate with soil. In fact, it can also be cultivated with water. In hydroponic culture, not only branches can be used, but also soil cultured plants can be transformed into hydroponic culture. The propagation method is also very simple and suitable for family propagation.
  • 1. Cebu blue Pothos Branch propagation in water: we can cut the most robust branches from Cebu blue Pothos plants, which do not need to be too long, about 10cm, and about 4-5 leaves on the branches. Aerial rooting on branches is the best, and rooting will be faster. Prepare containers and water for hydroponics in advance. If tap water is used, dry it for a day or two. Finally, put the branches into the container and change the water in time.
  • 2. The whole Cebu blue Pothos propagation in water: we can take out the soil culture Cebu blue Pothos from the basin soil and wash the root with clean water. Find a pair of sharp scissors and cut off the rotten roots, over long roots and dead roots on the plant. After cutting the root, it should be disinfected in potassium permanganate, otherwise it is easy to rot the root after hydroponic culture. Put the plants into water after disinfection. Remember to change the water when the water becomes dirty.

Cebu Blue Pothos Benefits

Cebu blue Pothos can absorb peculiar smell, purify air and attract wind. Cebu blue Pothos is easy to feed and is an ornamental plant. For propagation Cebu blue Pothos, it is necessary to ensure the ventilation of the environment and promote the plant to breathe normally. Cebu blue Pothos likes light and is not sun resistant. It needs to be placed in a place with bright light to ensure that the plant can carry out photosynthesis normally. It likes to be wet. It needs to be watered frequently during the growth period to keep sufficient water in the soil.

Cebu blue Pothos can absorb benzene, trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, etc. in the air. According to environmentalists, newly decorated new houses are more ventilated, and then put a few pots of plants, which can basically meet the occupancy standard. The newly paved floor is very easy to produce harmful substances. Because it can purify benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde in the air at the same time, it is very suitable to be placed in the newly decorated room.

Cebu blue Pothos also has strong air purification function and has the reputation of green purifier. It can convert formaldehyde into sugars or amino acids in metabolism, decompose benzene emitted by copiers and printers, and absorb it.

Cebu blue Pothos is an excellent foliage plant. It can not only be attached to the column and trunk greening made of brown, placed in the lobby and hotel, but also be cultivated into a hanging shape and placed in the study, windowsill, wall and wall. It can also be used as a ground cover plant under the shade. It is a kind of flower more suitable for indoor placement.

Watering method of Cebu blue Pothos

Since water fed Cebu blue Pothos needs to often spray water on the leaf surface, how should soil fed Cebu blue Pothos be watered? Parents can choose the planting method of Cebu blue Pothos according to their preferences. Next, let's take a look at the correct way to water the soil fed Cebu blue Pothos! We do not have a fixed watering time for the soil fed Cebu blue Pothos. It is appropriate for our parents to keep the soil moist. If the soil in the basin is wet, there is no need to water the soil. If the soil is slightly white, it means it's time for relatives to water. We water Cebu blue Pothos with due consideration to seasonal factors. In summer, the temperature is high, the water in the basin soil dissipates quickly, and the watering times also increase accordingly. When watering, in addition to watering the roots, it is also necessary to spray water on the leaves for many times; In winter, watering should be minimized, otherwise the accumulated water in the basin will easily lead to root rot; In spring and autumn, it depends on the situation. If it is dry, it will be poured. If it is not dry, it will not be poured.

When is it appropriate to water Cebu blue Pothos?

Watering Cebu blue Pothos in addition to the mark watering method, we should also consider the watering time of the day, because watering at an inappropriate time will not allow Cebu blue Pothos to fully absorb water, but may also cause damage to the plant! So which time of day is the most suitable for watering? Adding water to Cebu blue Pothos should be timed precisely because the temperature will affect the soil temperature. If the water temperature is difficult to keep consistent with the soil temperature during watering, Cebu blue Pothos will be as easy to "catch a cold" as people. Generally speaking, watering Cebu blue Pothos should try to choose the time when the sun is weak and the evaporation is low in the morning and evening, so as to avoid too fast water evaporation and reduce the temperature difference between soil temperature and water temperature. In addition, considering seasonal factors, it is best to water in the morning and evening in summer, around 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in spring and autumn, and at noon in winter. However, the parents' Cebu blue Pothos is planted indoors. If the room temperature and water temperature can be guaranteed to be consistent, there is no need to be so rigid when watering.

What if Cebu blue Pothos is watered too much?

If the indigenous Cebu blue Pothos is watered too much, there will usually be symptoms such as yellow leaves and rotten roots, so parents must grasp the degree when watering Cebu blue Pothos. So how should Cebu blue Pothos be remedied in time once it is watered too much? Here are some practical tips for first aid. First, put the whole basin of Cebu blue Pothos in a dry and ventilated place to evaporate the excess water in the basin in time. Then, pry the loose basin soil with a small stick or shovel to accelerate the evaporation of water. Then, do not water Cebu blue Pothos for a few days, and then water a small amount after the basin soil becomes slightly dry, so that the basin soil is slightly wet. Finally, when watering Cebu blue Pothos next time, pay attention to whether there is ponding in the basin. Once there is ponding, stop watering immediately, and then reduce the watering amount.

How often does Cebu blue Pothos change water?

The most common mistake we make when hydroponicing Cebu blue Pothos is to change its water every day, but doing so will lead to the root system of Cebu blue Pothos unable to adapt to the changing water quality environment, resulting in slow growth or plant death. What is the correct water change frequency? Come and have a look! In fact, aquatic Cebu blue Pothos cannot change water often. Normally growing Cebu blue Pothos only needs to change water once a month. Of course, if the water becomes dirty, the water can be changed in time to keep the Cebu blue Pothos roots from blackening. If Cebu blue Pothos has just been watered and the new roots have not yet grown, the water can be changed frequently during this period, and the water should be changed every 3-4 days. When Cebu blue Pothos changes water, you might as well wash its roots before putting them into the water. It is better to replace the new water with tap water and well water that have been standing for a few days. Clean water quality is the premise for Cebu blue Pothos to grow white and tender roots.
