How to propagate Transvaal Daisy? Sowing, planting and cuttage are usually used for propagation. Flower fans can choose the right one according to your own conditions.
The sowing propagation time of Transvaal Daisy is in spring and autumn. The first step is to select mature seeds of transvaal daisy that are healthy and full.
The ambient temperature is controlled at 18-20℃, and the seeds of transvaal daisy are directly sown on the surface of the soil. At the same time, a thin layer of soil should be covered with about 0.5 cm of soil. Generally, seeds will germinate 7-10 days after sowing.
Generally, the germination rate of Transvaal Daisy's seeds is about 50%. After sowing propagation of Transvaal Daisy, the soil in the basin should not be too wet, and the seedlings are prone to fall down due to disease.
Usually 60 to 70 days after sowing, when the seedlings have 2-3 true leaves, you can consider transplantation into a 10-centimeter pot for planting.
Flowering can be seen 2 to 3 months after transplanting.
The division time of Transvaal Daisy was in spring. First, the mother plant should be pushed out, and then the underground stem of the mother plant is cut into several daughter plants,
At the same time, each seed plant needs to bring new roots and shoots. After the seed plant is cut, smear a little bit of plant ash on the wound, and then plant the seed plant directly into the pot.
Potted plants should not be too deep, the root bud of the seed plant needs to show the soil surface, if the seed plant does not bring new bud, it is difficult to survive.
The cutting propagation time of Transvaal Daisy is also suitable for spring and autumn. First of all, healthy branches should be selected. Generally, healthy branches can be dug out from the robust plants, and the strong part of the roots should be cut, and the leaves of the branches should be removed.
Avoid cutting off the growing points and preserve the root neck. Then, insert the cuttings directly into the soil, compacting the soil around the cuttings. At the same time, the indoor temperature should be kept at 22-24℃, and water frequently to keep wet.
When we carry out the cutting propagation of Transvaal Daisy, the relative humidity of the environment is maintained at 70%-80%, and leaf buds and adventitious buds will grow from the root neck to form cuttings. One mother plant can cut cuttings 3 ~ 4 times repeatedly, and can pick 10 ~ 20 cuttings.
Inserted into a sand bed, it can take root in about 3-4 weeks. Generally in the year the cuttings of the new plant in that year can blossom.
