This cultivated Radish's diminutive size appeals to many florists. So how to grow this lovely mini cultivated Radish? Let's read on to find out!
Generally Cultivated radish can be grown all year, but occasionally in the summer the leaves may be too large and the roots may not grow properly. Therefore, the germination temperature is 15 to 30℃. After germination, it can be moved to a place with sufficient sunlight. In spring, special attention should be paid to aphids and diamondback moths.
Cultivated Radish seeds, long Flower pots, pot bottom net, pot bottom stone, vegetable cultivation soil, fertilizer.
It is necessary to sow in a drill way, so it is necessary to prepare a long flower pot. The bottom of the drill flowerpot is covered with a potted bottom net and potted bottom stone or foaming refining stone, until the potted bottom is out of sight.
4. Fertilize the soil for growing cultivated radish
If the culture soil is not fertilized beforehand, solid fertilizer is applied as the base fertilizer.
Pour into the culture soil, leaving about 3-4 cm of water space, and enough water, until the bottom of the pot out of water.
With a Bamboo stick or finger to dig out a straight sowing with a strip full groove, long flowerpot can draw two full grooves, between the full groove needed to keep 6 centimeters.
Sow the seeds one by one, 1-2 cm apart from each seed, and try not to let the seeds overlap. To avoid dry soil, do not let seeds overlap and can be covered with a layer of newspaper before germination to prevent moisture evapotranspiration.
It will sprout in 2-3 days after sowing. After germination, it can be moved to a sunny place.
One week after germination, the leaves will begin to grow, and the shoots will gradually grow thick, then the seedlings can be thinned.
This leaf grows gradually, and when it grows to about 4-5 pieces, the seedlings can be thinned again, leaving about 5 cm spacing between the plants.
After thinning, add soil around the plant to strengthen and fix the plant.
About 3 weeks after sowing, apply solid fertilizer.
Leaves begin to grow and the stems begin to thicken. If the soil is dry at this point, water it with plenty of water immediately, because if you don't get enough water, cultivated Radish will become hard and bent.
Once the roots of the plant start to swell and show, it's time to harvest.
