How to take care of Japanese camellia flowers fall

Japanese Camellia blooms and falls off, mainly due to improper maintenance and related to pruning, moisture, lighting and fertilizer. During the pruning period, the buds that need to be picked are not picked to the end. In the later period, the flowers are too much and nutrient consumption is large, so the flowers will fall. During blooming, you should not water the plants at the normal rate. You need to control the water, or the roots will rot and the flowers will fall. The following are details of how to take care of japanese camellia flowers fall.

1. Proper pruning

Japanese Camellia has a long flowering period, from October to May of the following year. In the spring, Japanese camellia should be pruned. If the later flowers are dense and fall off as soon as they bloom, they may not have been pruned properly. More buds, to consume a lot of nutrients, and plant nutrition is not enough, flowers will fall.

2. Water

Japanese Camellia has a high demand for water during growth, but during flowering, it needs to be controlled. During flowering, water the topsoil dry and keep it moist. If too much water, the bottom of the basin water, will lead to root rot, there will be flowers drop phenomenon. If you sprinkle water on a flower, the petals will rot.

3. Soil  

Japanese camellia prefers acid soil and is generally grown in loose, breathable, nutrient-rich acid soil. During the growing period, if the plants are irrigated with tap water for a long time, the nutrients in the soil will be lost, and the soil will be alkalized and agglomerated in the later period. After soil alkalization, the root system could not breathe and absorb nutrients normally, and the plant was deficient in nutrients, which would lead to the phenomenon of flower and leaf falling off.

4. Proper fertilization

Japanese camellia love fertilizer. You need plenty of fertilizer during your growing period, but the requirements for different kinds of fertilizer vary from stage to stage. During the spring, the plant needs to have sufficient nitrogen fertilizer. Before and after the flowering, the plant needs to have sufficient phosphorus and potassium fertilizer. If nitrogen is applied after the flowering, the plant will grow in vain, the leaves will grow normally, but the flowers will wither.

Japanese camellia buds become withered may be caused by low nutrient needs in a timely manner to thin bud, topdressing at the same time under. If the dry air also can appear as a bud withering phenomenon, we need to spray two times a day. Water shouldn't be too much, but the root rot affects the absorption of nutrients, and will appear bud dry in one hundred, in addition to maintaining a good ventilation environment helps to improve this phenomenon. The following are details of how to take care of japanese camellia flower buds withered.

1. Sufficient nutrients

In the process of cultivation, Japanese Camellia in the flower market is provided with enough nutrients, the buds germinate in the period of cultivation, and the leaves are green and shiny. However, in the process of purchase and cultivation at home, there are often insufficient nutrients, and the bud will become withered. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct bud opening treatment in time in the flowering stage, and appropriately supplement phosphate and potash fertilizer.

2. Humidity

Japanese Camellia likes to grow in a wet environment and has a high requirement for air humidity. If the humidity is lower than 30% during flowering, Japanese camellia's buds will dry out. At this time, it is necessary to increase the air humidity by spraying twice a day.

3. Root rot

Japanese camellia has a high demand for water. If you water too much and the soil is not loose enough, you will rot the roots. You need to trim off the rotting roots in time.

4. Ventilation

Poor ventilation and maintenance will also cause bud wilt. Poor air mobility is not conducive to the respiration of plants, especially in an indoor environment. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen the ventilation environment, frequent ventilation and fertilization with water can improve the withered phenomenon of Japanese camellia.
