Management of Dracaena Deremensis Compact after cutting

Humidity of the slotting machine. Cutting substrate water content should be kept at about 60%, relative humidity should be kept at 80% to 90%, timely supplement of water. After about 15 days of callus formation, water was gradually reduced, rooting was facilitated, and ventilation was l -- 2 hours per day.

Pour water permeable once immediately after insertion, keep the temperature below substrate temperature 3-6 ℃, use film or shading network to cool down and keep wet. Generally, 20-25 ℃ is appropriate for the rooting temperature of cuttings. If the temperature exceeds 30℃, ventilation should be provided at noon and water spraying should be used to cool the temperature.

The slotting machine dispenses and fertilizes. After injection, spray 50% carbendazim 800 times liquid or 65% mancozeb in time, once every 5 days, especially after rain should be timely replenished. After rooting, the number of spraying can be reduced appropriately.
