Asiatic dayflower is a kind of annual spreading herb, which is used in medicine with whole grass. Asiatic dayflower has various effects such as running water and clearing heat, cooling blood and detoxification and has high medical value. So how do you grow Asiatic dayflowers?Let's take a look at the growing Asiatic dayflower care.
The most suitable growth temperature of Asiatic dayflowers is 18 ~ 30℃, to avoid cold frost. asiatic dayflower cold ability is relatively weak, so in winter to mainly control the temperature, the temperature can not be lower than 10℃. When the temperature drops to 4℃, the Asiatic dayflower will enter the dormant period and stop growing. If the temperature is close to 0℃, the plant will suffer from freezing damage and die in serious cases. When we grow and care for Asiatic dayflower in winter, it can be wrapped in a film for the winter outdoors, but every two days it is necessary to uncover the film to allow it to breathe when the temperature is higher at noon.
The Asiatic dayflower has bright leaves and short internodes under sufficient sunlight. But to get sunlight insolation, the leaf can become dim without light, short and withered yellow roll, and the plant also can become short, reducing ornamental value. When we grow and care for Asiatic dayflower, keep adequate light to make it bright color, healthy growth; In a dark environment for a long time, the color will be dim, the internode becomes longer, the tendrils are not quiet, and the lack of vitality. Therefore, to ensure adequate light, but also to prevent strong light.
Asiatic dayflower has strong adaptability to drought, and the relative air temperature of the growing environment is required to be between 60-75%. When we grow and care for Asiatic dayflower, water should be sprayed to the branches and leaves and the surrounding environment to improve the relative air humidity. When the relative air humidity is high, the plant grows prosperously and is delicate and lovely.
The branches and leaves of Asiatic dayflower are slightly fleshy and drought resistant, so they do not die even if they are not in shallow water for a few days. But when the soil is moist, the plants can grow well. When we grow and care for Asiatic dayflower, watering should master the principle of "not dry, not watering, watering thoroughly", keep the basin soil moist and not dry.Winter needs to moderate watering, keep basin soil relatively dry.

When we grow and care for Asiatic dayflower, apply nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizer every half a month or so, and do not apply nitrogen fertilizer indiscriminate, single application of nitrogen fertilizer, although the growth of branches and leaves is strong and large, but not bright.In autumn, nitrogen fertilizer should be stopped, and phosphorus and potash fertilizer should be applied only, which is conducive to the safe overwintering of Asiatic dayflower, and fertilization should be stopped in winter.
Strengthen the air convection, so that the body temperature can be emitted;
Put in the half shade, or give it shade 50%;
3. Spray it appropriately 2 ~ 3 times a day.
1. Move to a bright indoor place for maintenance;
2. In the outdoor, available film to wrap it up for winter, but every two days in the noon when the temperature is higher to uncover the film to let it breathe.
