Blue Chalksticks are beautiful succulent plants with a rare Blue leaf color, and it is not only easy to grow. The following are growing Blue Chalksticks care.
Light is the most important. Most Succulents need full or half sun to grow properly, as is the case with Blue Chalksticks, but not enough light and not enough water will slow the growth of the plant. Generally, the plant will just stay as it is.
If you use too much water with too little sunlight, it's likely that the roots of blue chalksticks will rot because of standing water in the soil. When we grow and care for Blue Chalksticks, it's good that Blue chalksticks survived, so don't expect Blue Chalksticks to bloom again. If it blooms even in this situation, then Blue Chalksticks will often grow ugly plants when it blooms.
If Blue Chalksticks grow arrows but don't flower, or if they bloom for a short time, it's because you didn't give Blue Chalksticks enough nutrients. Because Blue Chalksticks need a lot of nutrients to bloom. If there is not enough nutrients, the blue chalksticks plant will become ugly after flowering. So when we grow and care for Blue Chalksticks, give the Blue Chalksticks enough nutrients during flowering. If the Blue Chalksticks are full of nutrients during flowering, the plant will not go off. But if the old sticks bloom, the plant will probably go off, because the root system may not be able to absorb the nutrients.
When we grow and care for Blue Chalksticks, if you don't want Blue Chalksticks to go out of form after flowering, or if you are not interested in the flowers of Blue Chalksticks, you can use scissors to cut them off from the bottom of the flowers close to the arrows. Don't clean the rest of the arrows until they slowly dry up and fall off. If you pull the arrows out in a hurry, the Blue Chalksticks plant will probably be hurt.
When we grow and care for Blue Chalksticks, if you don't want to pollinate the flowers, you can cut them off and put them in the bottle. If you don't want to pollinate them, you can cut them off and put them in the bottle when the flowers are in bud. You can see the flowers bloom and avoid consuming too much nutrients.
The most suitable temperature for growth is 15-35 ℃. When the temperature exceeds 35℃ in summer, the whole plant will grow slowly. Pay attention to ventilation. When we grow and care for Blue Chalksticks, try to keep the temperature above zero in winter. Too low can be dangerous. Blue Chalksticks may get frostbite.
When we grow and care for Blue Chalksticks in the Spring and Autumn Period, such as soil completely dry and then watering, must be re-watered.In summer, normal watering was carried out. In winter, the water would be cut off slowly when it was below 5 degrees Celsius. The water would basically be cut off throughout the winter, because Blue Chalksticks were not very resistant to cold, which would not easily cause frostbite.
When we growing and care for Blue Chalksticks, choosing a flower pot with a deep pot is good, soil we can configure themselves, usually with seven river sand mixed with three copies of lime is Blue Chalksticks farmed by use of soil, and the soil of this configuration must have very good air permeability, or is likely to cause soil such as internal water, resulting in Blue Chalksticks root rot.
