Heliotropium arborescens common propagation methods include such as sowing, cutting, division propagation. The following are details of 3 propagation methods of Heliotropium arborescens.
The propagation of heliotropium arborescens is generally carried out by cutting. Cutting propagation can be carried out all the year round, but in spring and autumn it is better.
Cutting propagation of Heliotropium arborescens can be carried out indoors, and the tender shoots of Heliotropium arborescens are selected for cutting. Indoor cutting propagation is generally in February -- March, from the upper part of Heliotropium arborescens plants to choose robust growth shoots, to retain 2 to 4 stem nodes, the shoots from the Heliotropium arborescens plants cut down, the incision should be smooth. To use the cut twigs of Heliotropium arborescens as the loh, it is necessary to remove the leaves of the lower part of the loh and keep 2 to 3 leaves of the upper part of the twigs.
To prepare suitable cutting substrate for propagating Heliotropium arborescens, generally choose clean river sand for cutting propagation. The loh of Heliotropium arborescens inserted into the matrix, note that the loh inserted into the sand in one-third, cuttings to gently press the sand, and then pour enough water, and appropriate shade. Keep the moisture and temperature in place and the roots will take about 3 weeks to root.
After rooting, Heliotropium arborescens can be transplanted into the flower, and the heart can be plucked when it grows to about 7 or 8cm, and the management of water and fertilizer should be strengthened in the maintenance process.
Sowing is also the propagation method of Heliotropium arborescens, but the seed life of Heliotropium arborescens is short, so the seeds need to be planted early after harvest.
Heliotropium arborescens sowing propagation is usually carried out in the autumn. Sow the collected seeds, keep the temperature at about 20℃, and they can germinate in about 20 to 30 days. When the seedlings of Heliotropium arborescens grow to a certain height, they can be transplanted and planted.
Division propagation methods is one of Heliotropium arborescens propagation, which can be carried out in the spring in combination with the potting treatment. After the root system is taken out from the potting soil, the root system with strong growth above is cut down, directly buried in the prepared nutrient soil, watered and moistened, and placed in a shaded environment. After about 20 days, it can sprout.
