First, let's briefly understand the growth habits of Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki'.
Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' likes to be cool and dry, with sufficient and soft light, tolerates semi-shade, and is afraid of water, heat and cold. In the growing season, the window surface of the whole plant is very beautiful.
Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' growing basin can keep a slightly damp soil. Because they like the big humidity, but the humidity is root growth in good conditions. Pay attention to no longer good roots having been wet, which will be roots rotted. The specific root method is slightly damp soil, put dry the wound on the plant species in a cool, ventilated place waiting for the new root, out of the new root can step by step after the water supply. Increase the light at the same time, if too long shade, the plant will deformat and moderate growth.
Propagation of Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' can be cross-pollinated, seeded or cross-pollinated, or beheaded to burst small buds.
During cultivation, Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' sometimes appears that the top of fleshy leaves change from 'convex' to 'concave'. The leaves are dull in color, the 'window' surface is cloudy, and the growth stops. In addition to summer dormancy, the root system of the plant may be dried and necrotic, so the plant can be taken out of the soil to remove rotten and necrotic roots. After 3-7 days of drying, the Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' can be planted with new culture soil. When the new roots grow out, the fleshy leaves will gradually become full and return to the original shape. Plants with normal growth can be changed once a year in autumn. The root system of the Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' can be sorted out when changing the basin, and the rotten and old roots can be cut off. Slow acting fertilizer can be added to the plant material for the root system to absorb slowly. New plants should not be watered too much, and the soil should be kept a little damp to help the root system recover. Kite basin replacement is not so active, generally speaking, the plants do not grow, or the basin can not be maintained before starting to change the soil.
In summer because the temperature is too high, the Haworthia 'Yuki Keshiki' is basically slow or stops growing. The bottom of the leaf will slowly dry out a little bit. Soil maintains moderate dry summer months, appropriate at the edge of the basin to water every month. Don't give heart to leaf, high temperature is easily rotten core. Keep roots slow or stop the growth of water plants. We can't stop feeding because of the high temperature dormancy, because wake up also needs a long time.
Because of the slow growth and high temperature in summer, the leaves of the whole plant will not be too full, and each season has the beauty of each season. Winter is the coldest season. The kite is covered with a transparent plastic cover, basin to keep the soil slightly wet, water little every month. Apply heat preservation and increased humidity. The sun can make the temperature rise during the day, the air humidity is also very big, then the leaves are particularly full, beautiful and charming.
