How to grow and care for Reineckea

When we grow and care for Reineckea, when the temperature is too low, attention should be paid to the temperature protection in the transplanting room, watering thoroughly every time, to ensure the moisture of the soil. We can put the Reineckea in a cool place, to ensure that the sun is irradiated. We should choose loose and breathable soil, which is not resistant to waterlogging and is prone to rot root phenomenon. The following are growing Reineckea care.

 Reineckea care

1. Temperature care for growing Reineckea

Reineckea likes a warm environment. In the south, the winter temperature is slightly higher, so reineckea can be exposed to the outside for the winter. However, when we grow and care for reineckea in the northern winter, it is necessary to increase the temperature and maintain it in the transplanting room to avoid frostbite.

2. Moisture care for growing Reineckea

The Reineckea prefers wet conditions, and if the soil is too dry, the Reineckea's leaf tips may become dry. Water the Reineckea thoroughly every time you water it to ensure that the soil is moist. When we grow and care for Reineckea, if the environment is too dry, you can spray water into the air to cool it and keep the environment moist.

3. Sunlight care for growing Reineckea

The vigorous growth of Reineckea does not require much sunlight, but the shady place will promote the growth of Reineckea. The insufficient light will cause the growth of Reineckea to be weak. When we grow and care for Reineckea, the Reineckea can be placed in the place that is irradiated by astigmatism. Strong sunlight can cause the Reineckea to burn and the leaves to turn yellow.

4. Fertilizing care for growing Reineckea

Reineckea regularly applies a few drops of nutrient solution or potassium dihydrogen phosphate solution. When we grow and care for Reineckea, spraying strong stem spirit in the plant surface can make the plant stem stout, leaf hypertrophy, leaf color fresh and tender, and the plant lush.

5. Pruning care for growing Reineckea

Reineckea can properly cut each longer branch short, the short cut should be more than 0.3 cm away from the next leaf bud, otherwise it will affect the germination of leaf bud.

Pot soil replacement: Reineckea tried not to damage the roots when replacing the pot soil and brought as much soil as possible. This is good for growth after repot.

6. Growing Reineckea care for disease and insect control 

Reineckea anthracnose is a shade tolerant plant, light should not be too strong, otherwise it will cause leaf yellowing or disease. When we grow and care for Reineckeam, diseased leaves were cut off and destroyed in time to reduce the source of initial infection. Long distance storage and transportation, should be sprayed 40 {BF} Dakonin (chlorothalonil) suspension agent or 25 {BF} carbon Trane WP 500 times liquid prevention, transported to the north, put into the shed for careful maintenance. Before the rainy season, spray 50 {BF} to 100 {BF} or apply WP 1000 times liquid or 25 {BF} carbon Trane WP 500 times liquid, every 10 days once, 3 ~ 4 times of prevention. When we grow and care for Reineckea, if necessary, spray 0.5 {BF} potassium dihydrogen phosphate solution or double effect micro-fertilizer 300 times liquid, which is beneficial to enhance disease resistance.

7. Reineckea care for aquaponic growing methods 

Water change: since Reineckea's roots have been immersed in water for a long time, the water is prone to odor after a long time. When we grow and care for Reineckea, the water should be changed frequently, once a week is better. Each time the water is changed, the container and the water need to be cleaned of the pebbles, to prevent microbial growth causing root rot.

Sunlight: Reineckea is strong and can grow in full sunlight and heavy shade, but is preferred in moist semi-shade. When the light is too strong, the leaf color is not green and yellow, and the Taiyin growth is weak and can not blossom. Hydroponic Reineckea placed for indoor viewing. When we grow and care for Reineckea, attention should be paid to keep the leaf clean, 1 to 2 hours a night fluorescent lamp irradiation can meet the needs of photosynthesis.

Temperature: Reineckea likes warmth and is cold resistant. It can overwinter on the open ground in warmer regions, and it needs to protect overwintering in winter in cold northern regions.

Nutrient solution: Hydroponics Reineckea requires regular drops of nutrient solution or potassium dihydrogen phosphate solution. When we grow and care for Reineckea, spraying strong stem spirit on the plant surface can make the plant stem stout, leaf hypertrophy, leaf color fresh and tender, and the plant lush.
