How to grow and care for Transvaal Daisy? We should first understand the growth requirements of Transvaal Daisy, such as the requirements of Transvaal Daisy on lighting, environment, watering and fertilization. The following is how to grow and care for Transvaal Daisy.
The suitable growth temperature of Transvaal daisy is 15-25℃. When we grow and care for Transvaal daisy, if the ambient temperature is higher than 30℃, it is necessary to strengthen environmental ventilation and spray humidification.
If the ambient temperature is lower than 5℃, it is vulnerable to freezing damage. If the ambient temperature is lower than 0℃, Transvaal Daisy plants will freeze to death.
So when we grow and care for Transvaal daisy in winter, we must do a good job of insulation measures.
The sandy loam rich in humus is more suitable for potting soil, so vegetative soil or loam mixed with peat, coconut bran and perlite in a ratio of 1:1:1 can be used for potting soil.
When we grow and care for Transvaal daisy, an appropriate amount of organic granular fertilizer can be added to the soil, which is conducive to the growth of Transvaal Daisy.
Transvaal Daisy is a light-loving Flower plant, but it needs proper shade in summer to avoid being burned by strong light. When we grow and care for Transvaal daisy in winter, try to give Transvaal Daisy full daylight.
If it is a rainy day or indoor maintenance, the light is not enough, you can use bright light to fill the light processing.
During the growing period, Transvaal Daisy has a great demand for water separation, so it is necessary to water enough during the period. Of course, the amount of water should be controlled well.
Avoid soil that is not too wet and causes root rot. When we grow and care for Transvaal daisy, drainage measures should be done in advance in the rainy season, and daily watering should be avoided when watering to the flowers.
Transvaal Daisy is a fat-loving flower. When we grow and care for Transvaal daisy in spring and autumn, we can apply fertilizer once a week. In winter or summer, they can apply fertilizer every half month.
In addition, as Transvaal Daisy is approaching the flowering period, potash-based fertilizer solution can be applied once to promote the flowering of Transvaal Daisy.
The lower leaves of the basal leaf cluster of Transvaal Daisy are prone to wilt and senescence, so when we grow and care for Transvaal daisy, we should remove them in time, which is not only conducive to the initiation of new leaves and flower buds, but also conducive to ventilation and enhance plant growth.
Diseases of Transvaal Daisy include leaf spot, powdery mildew and viral disease. When we grow and care for Transvaal daisy, leaf spot was sprayed with 70% methyltobutazine WP 800-1000 times or 50% carbendazim WP 500 times.
Powdery mildew with 70% methyl tobujin 1500 times liquid or 75% powder rust rather wet powder 1000-1200 times liquid for prevention and control, once 7-10 days, continuous spray 2-3 times.
