Saraca's breeding points

1. Maintain the environment

Saraca is a common plant in subtropical regions. It has strict requirements for light and temperature. It is not cold-tolerant. It likes to grow under warm sunlight. When the surrounding temperature is lower than 13℃, it will stop growing. Pay attention to the intensity of sunlight during growth. Rotate the flowerpot from time to time to ensure that each part can receive even light.

2. Fertilize regularly

Saraca must apply sufficient base fertilizer from the time of planting, mainly fully decomposed organic fertilizer, and then apply decomposed liquid fertilizer once a month during the growth period, a small amount of times, mainly decomposed cake fertilizer, and apply it before and after flowering. Phosphorus-potassium compound fertilizer once to promote flowering, just apply antifreeze once before winter.


3. Watering and moisturizing

Watering and moisturizing is an important condition in Saraca's breeding method. Saraca does not require a large amount of water. When Saraca is potted, because the root system has the ability to replenish water, it does not require excessive watering during the growth period. It is best to water more appropriately in summer, and strictly control watering during flowering.

4. Suitable for pruning

When Saraca’s main stem is formed, we must regularly trim its branches to control its growth height and prevent excessive or unnecessary nutrient loss. During the pruning process, we can also trim the plants according to their aesthetic preferences. , And cut off the branches that affect the aesthetics to enhance the ornamental value.
