Chinese asparagus can be propagated by sowing and division propagation. The following are details of these 2 propagation methods of Chinese asparagus.
The four seasons can be carried out Chinese asparagus division propagation method, but in early spring asparagus did not germinate before, combined with the most appropriate basin for soil. When applying division propagation, knock out the old plants from the original pot, cut off part of the redundant old roots and remove part of the old mud. Divide them into 3 to 5 clumps according to the size of the plants with a sharp knife and plant them in the pot. Planting on the pot is not too deep, pour enough water after the place of half shade, 2~10 days later can be maintained according to the general plant.
The seeds collected in other years should be potted in early spring or early summer. The thickness of the soil covering for Chinese asparagus sowing propagation should be about 1 times the diameter of the seeds. If the soil covering is too thick, the germination will be affected. Soak in water after sowing, cover the glass and place in the indoor half shade place. Then we need to often keep the basin soil moist, in about 15 about 30 days can emerge. When the seedlings grow to 6~8 cm high, and when the seedlings transplant. Chinese asparagus division propagation method needs to be pruned in winter and spring to remove the withered old thin branches. After the sowing propagation of Chinese asparagus, every 10~15 days after 1 time fertilizer, in time to loosen the soil. In summer it needs to be placed in the outdoor half shade, keep dry, do not water too much, so as not to yellow twigs. Moving it to the greenhouse in winter and keeping the room temperature of 15℃~20℃ can safely overwinter.
