How to grow and care for Cineraria

When we grow and care for cineraria, first choose more breathable mud made of baked clay, silty loam, sawdust, cake fertilizer made from according to the proportion of 6:3:1 nutrition soil, bud during pregnancy illumination time not less than three hours a day, to control the temperature around 10 ℃ to 15 ℃, keep the soil moist during growth, and also often to foliar spraying, to keep them moist degree.

1. Basin soil care for growing cineraria

When we grow and care for Cineraria, the pot is best to choose the size of the appropriate and more ventilation of the clay pot, in the seedling to join the sandy loam, wood chips, cake fertilizer in accordance with the ratio of 6:3:1 prepared by the nutrient soil, in the basin when the side of Cineraria bud cut off, to reduce the loss of nutrients, to promote the growth of the root system. 

2. Suitable light and temperature care for growing cineraria

Appropriate light temperature is the basic requirement when we grow and care for cineraria. Cineraria is a very bright light plant, during the pregnancy the illumination time is not less than three hours a day. This way can let laid color be rich and colorful, because it is fond of temperature and is not high temperature resistant. It’s better to control temperature around 10 ℃ to 15 ℃, cannot be lower than 5 ℃ or higher than 25 ℃, otherwise it does not favor the Flower bud differentiation.

3. Water care for growing cineraria

Cineraria like to grow in the humidity larger environment, but also cannot be too wet, and it can appear roots rotted, as a result of the plant leaves hypertrophy. When we grow and care for cineraria, it is best to keep the soil moist during growth, and also often to foliar spraying, in order to keep moisture. Generally keep the stem not watering, watering can automatically, the principle of the water to reduce the cold season.

4. Fertilizing care for growing cineraria

When we grow and care for cineraria, every 7 ~ 10 days to apply a thin cake fertilizer water or compound fertilizer solution, the best use of the two alternately, after transplanting can be applied every 2 weeks a decomposed liquid fertilizer, mainly decomposed bean cake or rotten peanuts, and to add water dilution, now the budding period can be added 1 ~ 2 times of phosphate and potassium fertilizer, not nitrogen fertilizer.

5. Temperature care for growing cineraria

Every winter in January is a cinematic budding period. When we grow and care for cineraria, it should be controlled temperature and the temperature should not exceed 20 ℃ during the day. It is also important to increase fertilizer and water management, which is the key to Cineraria's flowering and growth. Ammonia dihydrogen phosphate granular fertilizer can be buried in the basin soil to provide nutrients, such as thin leaf surface can be applied to the leaf surface of the thin potassium dihydrogen phosphate 1 ~ 2 times.
