In the process of growing and care for Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker, apply an appropriate amount of soil mixed fertilizer and organic fertilizer to the soil before planting, pour in water, and then carry out deep plowing. After the seeds are wet, the roots and shoots are taken out, and the row spacing is about 25. Buried in the soil, pour in water to keep it moist, pruning properly when the flower buds appear, and control the temperature at 15-25℃.
The substrate environment is the basic requirement when we grow and care for Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker. Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker has strong adaptability, but it grows faster in sandy soil with deep soil and good drainage. The soil is deeply plowed, and a small amount of soil miscellaneous fertilizer and organic fertilizer are applied to it as the base fertilizer, and the soil is loosened after pouring in water to keep the soil moist.
Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker grows at temperatures between 12 and 18℃. Generally, it does not freeze to death in winter when the temperature drops to three and five ℃.
If the temperature at night in winter is below 5℃ and lasts for five to seven days, then bud differentiation and bud development in lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker will be seriously affected. It will affect flowering, blindness and cleavage in Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker.
Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker is a flower plant that likes light. So it must be kept in a place with plenty of sunshine during its maintenance.
If the light exposure of Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker is short, it will directly affect the differentiation of flower buds and reduce the flowering effect of Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker.
And the summer sun is so bright that it usually needs to be blocked out by 80% of the Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker. And it needs to avoid the bright light of the middle of the day.
After cleaning the selected Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker seeds, store them in a slightly damp sandy soil. In autumn, take out the root buds inside and bury them in the prepared soil. Cultivate at a distance of about 25 cm. Place the buds facing upwards, cover a layer of sand about 5 cm, and pour a little water.
When the Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker plant has 3 to 4 pairs of true leaves, transplanting is performed. When we grow and care for Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker, pruning treatment can be carried out appropriately, and weeding should be carried out at the young stage. Prune properly when flower buds appear, reduce nutrient consumption to increase yield, so that plants grow faster.
When we grow and care for Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker, it is necessary to control the temperature at about 15～25℃ in the early stage of growth. When the temperature is lower than 10℃, the plant will grow more slowly. At the same time, watering should be done appropriately. It is best to keep the soil slightly moist, and fertilize mainly with high potassium nitrate fertilizer or special fertilizer for pot flowers.
Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker has several common diseases, including lily Mosaic disease, spot disease, bulb rot, leaf blight, etc., as well as aphids, ground tigers, ants, mole crickets eating seedlings (stems), nematodes, earthworms and other pests that kill underground bulbs and bulb plates.
The propagation methods of Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker mainly include sowing, bulblet separation, scale cuttage and bud division.
Sowing propagation involves harvesting seeds in the fall and replanting them in the spring of the following year. The cycle that breeds is longer, general family breeds not to use this kind of method quite.
Divide small bulb method is mainly in autumn from the old bulb of lilies on the separation of a few small bulbs, the early year of the second year and then on the pot planting, more suitable for family propagating Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker.
Scaly cuttings are made by breaking off the scales from the old bulbs of lilies. This method of reproduction can produce large numbers of Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker. After a period of cultivation, the scales grow into small bulbs, which are ready to be potted in the spring.
The sprouting method is only suitable for a few species. The method is to take down the bead buds formed in the axils of the stems and leaves of the Lilium brownii var. viridulum Baker. When the bulbs are large enough to be planted, they usually take 2 to 4 years to flower.
