Soil : Hybrid Fuchsia likes loose sandy loam with good drainage.

Moisture : In winter and the rainy season 2~3 days watering once, autumn and sunny day watering once a day, the summer is in a semi-dormant state to control the water, to prevent the occurrence of leaf root rot phenomenon.

Sunshine: Hybrid Fuchsia likes the environment with sufficient sunshine. If there is a lack of sunshine, it is easy to result in the reduction of flowering.

Fertilizer : Before transplanting, apply sufficient organic fertilizer, control nitrogen fertilizer in early growth period, prevent barren growth, and increase phosphorus and potassium fertilizer in flowering period.

Temperature: The suitable temperature for growth is 15~25℃. In summer, it is afraid of hot and high temperatures. When the temperature exceeds 30℃, it will enter a semi-dormant state, and the winter shall not be lower than 5℃.

Summer shade: When it comes into the summer, if the temperature exceeds 30℃, to avoid the strong sun exposure. During the day, it can be moved to the balcony below the cool and ventilated place, after sunset and then moved on the balcony (the best shade or shade). Move basin plants ahead of schedule from south balcony to buy north balcony to go up in order to avoid sunshine. Place the pot in a large Bamboo basket or cardboard box, surrounded by soft soil in the pot to prevent the pot from being baked directly by the sun.

Increase temperature and decrease temperature: Put half or the whole brick into a container, fill the container with clear water (water should be higher than the brick surface), and then place the pot plant on the brick, which can reduce temperature for a long time. Move the pot Hybrid Fuchsia downstairs ventilation and avoid the light, dig a small pit in the ground, bury the pot plant in the soil, wait until autumn and then put the pot plant indoors. Once the pot Hybrid Fuchsia is basked in by the scorching sun after heat, before has not come out of the heat, we must not water to the leaf inside the pot, in case of uneven cold and heat, bring about meaning

External damage. During the period of heat prevention and cooling, due to the reduction of light, to control watering, not too much too often, often keep the basin soil moist.

Prevent rain: In summer there is a rainy season. Before the rain, put the pot plant in the place of rain shelter, such as thunderstorm too late to move the pot,

The water in the basin should be emptied out in time. If the basin is still too wet at this time, the charcoal that has been burned can be sprinkled on the surface of the soil in the basin, so that excessive water evaporates a part.

Gray mold

Gray mould occurs when it is overcast and rainy or when too much nitrogen or too little light is applied. The main harm stems, leaves, flowers, resulting in water spots in the affected parts.

Solution: In the early stage of the disease timely spray 500 times the solution of 65% of the Zinc or 50% of the carbendazim and other new agents, every 7~10 days spray 1 times, continuous spray 3~4 times, usually pay attention to ventilation and light, so that the plant growth well, improve the plant resistance. After the onset of the disease, cut off and dispose of the diseased branches and leaves in time to reduce the source of the disease.

Powdery mildew

Powdery mildew mainly harms stems, leaves and buds. Sickness after the surface has a layer of white powder, serious when the leaf atrophy, flowers become small.

Solution: Pay attention to ventilation and illumination, increase phosphorus, potassium fertilizer, improve plant disease resistance.
