How to care for lily

I believe that very few people can refuse the fragrance of lilies. Place a basin in the sitting room, the full room is fragrant, gladdening the heart and refreshing the heart and spleen. Lilies are very tough and easy to grow. How to care for lily if its buds are blackening or it grows excessively? Let's see together.


Lily care for buds blackening

The blackening of lily buds may be caused by too low temperature, insufficient light, too wet soil or unsuitable environment. At this time, appropriate measures should be taken according to the different circumstances. When growing lilies at ordinary times, it is best to control the temperature in 12 ~ 18 degrees. In the process of breeding, it is best to place the plants in the indoor half shade, which cannot be placed in the environment with strong light. The following are details of Lily's care for buds blackening. 

1. Temperature care

Lilies are ornamental flowers and are often grown as home potted plants. The blackening of lily buds when planted is usually caused by low temperatures. Although lilies are hardy, they can be blackened by frostbite when temperatures fall below 5 degrees Celsius. It is best to keep the temperature of lilies between 12 and 18 degrees when possible.

2. Enough light

Lilies are light-loving plants. If the light is not enough, the flower buds will turn black, and the plants will wilt in severe cases. When caring lilies at ordinary times, it is best to place the plant in the indoor half shade ventilated place. When the light is strong, it is best to place the plant in the shade. At the same time, it is necessary to spray water around the plant appropriately.

3. Soil care

Lilies like water but are afraid of waterlogging. If the soil is too wet when they are raised, the flower buds will turn black. In severe cases, the roots of the plants will rot. Growing lilies can be watered according to seasonal changes to the plant. When growing lilies in Spring and Autumn, we need to water the plant 2 ~ 3 times a week, summer breeding every two days to water the plant.

4. Environment  

Lilies like to grow in a cool, ventilated environment, and if the plant is kept in a hot and humid environment for a long time, it will also cause the flower bud to blacken. Lilies can be placed according to the light to determine the location, usually the best plant placed in the indoor semi-shady ventilated place, can not be placed in a strong light environment.


Lily care for growing excessively

Lilies may grow excessively because of insufficient light, too small soil, inappropriate temperature, or poor placement. Plant lilies in an airy, sunny place, except for six hours of light a day in the summer, and each year choose the appropriate pot for the size of the plant. The following are details of lily care for growing excessively.

1. Increase light

Lilies belong to the lily family perennial herbs, flowering period is very long. How does that lily grow excessively? Lilies grow barren without light. Lilies should be shaded for six hours a day, no more, no less, except in the summer.

2. Replace the basin soil

The root system of lily is very big, its stem also grows root. Therefore we need to choose a deep basin to grow. Basin soil is not suitable for lily to grow. Lilies should be raised in a 20cm ceramic pot at least, and each year they should be changed according to the size of the plant.

3. Change location

If the lily is placed in a cool and unventilated environment for a long time, the plant will grow excessively because of the hot environment. When growing lilies, they should be placed in a ventilated and sunny place, and they should be given nitrogen fertilizer once a month to supplement nutrition.

4. Control the temperature

Lilies grow well between 15 and 25 degrees, below 5 degrees or above 30 degrees will stop growing, resulting in the plant can not absorb nutrients from the soil and water growth. When the temperature is above 30 degrees, plant lilies in a cool place and cool them down. When the temperature is below 5 degrees, prepare lilies in advance.
