It is said that the Florist Kalanchoe is easy to grow and care for and the flowering period is long, but some people can not grow Florist Kalanchoe well. So today, we will introduce how to grow and care for Florist Kalanchoe.
Florist Kalanchoe is too tall and thin so you can trim it and cut off the long branches at the top. After the trimming, apply the disinfecting potion to the cut of Florist Kalanchoe and put the Florist Kalanchoe in a cool ventilated position. After Florist Kalanchoe recovers, it can be conserved outside with sufficient light. Suffice light will help the growth of the branches and avoid the growth of the branches. The following are details of growing Florist Kalanchoe care for it growing too tall and thin.
Florist Kalanchoe is a beautiful perennial herb in the family Orchidaceae. It's very beautiful and very ornamental. When we grow and care for Florist Kalanchoe, the Florist Kalanchoe needs to be clipped if it grows tall and thin. Before pruning, disinfect the knife with alcohol and then cut the long branches off the top of Florist Kalanchoe. After pruning, leave them in a cool, ventilated place for curing.
The robust branches cut off can be propagated by cuttings. After the wound of the branch is healed, the cuttage is planted in the nutrient soil of loose and breathable, reasonable maintenance, the late period can give root. The trimmings of the Florist Kalanchoe and put it inside for care and be careful that the wound doesn't touch any water because it will catch bacteria and increase the chances of the Florist Kalanchoe.
After the trimming, apply a solution of carbendazim to the wound of Florist Kalanchoe to help the wound heal.Water and fertilize properly during the care and can care normally when the Florist Kalanchoe recovers. When we grow and care for Florist Kalanchoe, in order to avoid the phenomenon of barren growth in the later period, it is necessary to put it in a position with sufficient light for maintenance.
Put the Florist Kalanchoe outside in good light and give it plenty of light so it can photosynthesize. Be careful when growing and care for Florist Kalanchoe, because the Florist Kalanchoe doesn't stand strong light and you need to keep the Florist Kalanchoe indoors in a cool, ventilated place during the summer. Remember, keep the Florist Kalanchoe in a cool place for a long time. Florist Kalanchoe will grow short.
Florist Kalanchoe Root rot. Probably caused by too much watering. Too much watering can rot the roots. Florist Kalanchoe rotted. It was probably caused by too much fertilizer. Too much fertilizer would burn the roots and cause them to rot later in the season. If the soil is tight and has poor air permeability, the root system will not grow well and it will rot later in the season, which will affect the normal growth of Florist Kalanchoe. The following are details of growing Florist Kalanchoe care for roots rot.
Florist Kalanchoe broke down its roots when it was growing, probably because of too much watering. Florist Kalanchoe is very dry-tolerant and does not tolerate flooding and if you water it too much during its maintenance it can cause water to water the bottom of the basin. Water on the floor of the basin can cause rot to the roots of Florist Kalanchoe and later on it can affect the normal growth of the stems and flowers.
When we grow and care for Florist Kalanchoe, excessive fertilization can also rot the roots.If you give too much fertilizer to Florist Kalanchoe during conservation, the fertilizer concentration is too high and it will burn the roots of the Florist Kalanchoe. If you don't give Florist Kalanchoe treatment when the root system is broken, it will thin out the stems and turn yellow, dry or fall off.
When we grow and care for Florist Kalanchoe, the hardening of the soil also rotts the roots. Don't give the Florist Kalanchoe a long time to loosen the soil during curing and it will stiffen. When the soil solidifies, there is not enough air in the pot for the root system to breathe and grow properly. If the root system does not grow well for a long period of time, it will decompose later and affect the growth of Florist Kalanchoe.
Florist Kalanchoe should be properly conserved during the conservation period according to its growth habits.I'm just moving Florist Kalanchoe and the roots are not used to the new soil yet so you need to control the water and don't apply any fertilizer or it will spoil the roots as well. If the roots are rotting, they need to be pruned and disinfected before being replanted in a new pot.
