Pitcher plant common methods of propagation include cutting, layering , tissue culture and swinging propagation. Cutting propagation: Cutting branches with bud points and planting them in soil. Layering propagation: select the branches near the end of the slightly, in 2~3 bar between the peeling, the thickness of a quarter of the stem; After applying rooting agent, wrap with water moss and cover with plastic wrap; Containers outside the foil paper to avoid light, 2~ April can be rooted planting. Sowing propagation: select fine soil, mix seeds with sand a small amount and then sow, 1 month or so germinate. The following are details of these four propagation methods of the Pitcher plant.
Cutting propagation method is the most common way to propagate Cutting propagation method. You can cut the sprouts directly into the fresh soil.Cut the branches and keep 2~3 bud points and 1~2 leaves.
Air layering propagation is a safer method of propagation. For plants with low cuttage success rate, the propagation method of laying Pitcher plants can be used.
Select a branch near the end of the tree. Peel it in 2-3 bars, a quarter of the thickness of the stem.
Apply a layer of rooting agent and fungicide to the peeling area. Cover it with a layer of water moss, at least 5cm thick, and cover it with plastic wrap.
In propagation, take root in darkness. So wrap the container with a sheet of tin foil to avoid light.
After wrapping your bookmarks, it will take about two to four months for roots to grow. During this period to often open the tin foil inspection, so as not to damage the new root. Keep the soil moist and ready to plant when it takes root!
Buy special culture liquid at flower shops, undertake culture propagation in 3~6 months commonly. It takes about 20 days for the roots to come up.
Some people stored the seeds in refrigerators (4 ° C). However, low temperatures would hasten the death of the seeds. They could only be preserved for a few weeks, so the seeds had to be planted as soon as they were harvested.
The seed of the plant is very small. It is better to choose soil that is fine. When sowing propagation, mix the seeds with sand in small amounts and sprinkle them directly into the soil.
Hold the moisture in the air after planting. Cover the mouth with plastic wrap and poke a few small holes in it.
Put the pot in the sun and shade it properly. A slightly brighter spot will help sprout.
It takes about a month for the seeds to germinate. Humidity in the air should be lowered after germination. About six months or a year later, direct transplantation is good.
