Hybrid Fuchsia growing methods 

Best growing time: hybrid fuchsia Best growing time is late spring and early autumn.

Best growing soil: Hybrid Fuchsia prefers loose sandy loam with good drainage.

Growth humidity requirement: Hybrid Fuchsia plant makes the relative air humidity above 60 {bf} by spraying water.

Optimum growth temperature: Hybrid Fuchsia grows at 15 ~ 25℃. It is afraid of hot and high temperatures in summer. When the temperature exceeds 30℃, it will enter a semi-dormant state, and in winter it shall not be lower than 5℃.

Optimum growing light: Hybrid Fuchsia likes full sunshine environment, lack of sunlight is easy to grow barren, resulting in reduced flowering.

Hybrid Fuchsia care

Fertilizing care 

Apply organic fertilizer before transplanting. Nitrogen fertilizer is controlled in the early growth stage to prevent unproductive growth, and phosphorus and potassium fertilizer is added in the flowering stage.

Water in winter and rainy season 2 ~ 3 days once, autumn and sunny days once a day. In the summer, put it in a semi-dormant state to control the water, to prevent the phenomenon of shedding leaves, root rot.

Hybrid Fuchsia

Pruning care

Hybrid Fuchsia will prune all the thin and yellow branches, and the remaining branches will be cut short. The length of the remaining branches will be determined by the ornamental quality, and the whole plant should be coordinated.

Hybrid Fuchsia grows fast and requires sufficient nutrients, so the soil in the pot should be sandy loam rich in humus. Also add 20% ~ 30 {BF} of fully decayed animal dung. When entering the growth season of the hair, even topdressing liquid fertilizer, the spring of the first 3 years of the year should turn over the basin for soil, supplementary nutrients.

Temperature care

When the temperature exceeds 38℃ in summer, the metabolism is slow and the growth of Hybrid Fuchsia is in a stagnant state, which often leads to falling leaves and root rot. If no effective measures are taken, the whole plant will die.

The minimum temperature of the greenhouse in winter should be maintained at 10℃. Under the low temperature of 5℃, it is vulnerable to freezing damage.

Key points of propagation: Hybrid Fuchsia adopts cutting propagation and layering propagation.

1. Cutting propagation. Often in late spring and early autumn with the branches of the year for tender cuttings, or in early spring with the branches of last year for cuttings; For tender cuttings, in late spring to early autumn plant growth exuberant, choose that year's sturdy branches as cuttings. After cutting off the branches, select the strong parts and cut them into sections 5 to 15 centimeters long, with more than 3 leaf segments in each section. When cutting, it should be noted that the upper cutting mouth is about 1 cm at the top of the top leaf section, and the lower cutting mouth is about 0.5 cm at the bottom of the bottom leaf section. The upper and lower cutting mouth should be flat (the knife should be sharp).

2. Layered propagation. Take a strong branch and peel off the bark about 15 to 30 cm below the top. The width of the cut should be about 1 cm, and the depth should be limited to the skin just peeled off. Cut a piece of film 10 ~ 20 cm long and 5 ~ 8 cm wide, put some wet garden soil on it, and wrap up the part of the ring peel as if wrapping a wound. Tie the upper and lower ends of the film tightly and bulge up in the middle. Root in about four to six weeks. After taking root, the edge of the branch root system cut together, became a new plant.

Hybrid Fuchsia pest Control:

1. Gray mold.Solution: In the early stage of the disease timely spray 500 times the solution of 65 {BF} sen zinc or 50 {BF} 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.

2. Powdery mildew. Solution: Pay attention to ventilation and illumination, increase phosphorus, potassium fertilizer, improve plant disease resistance. Spray 800 times of 70 {BF} tobuzin solution or 2500 times of Fencing or other appropriate agents in time after the onset of disease. Spray 1 time every 10 days and continuously spray 2 ~ 3 times.
