Propagation methods of Brazilian plume flowers

Brazilian plume flowers can be propagated by cutting and sowing. Let's look at details of these two propagtion methods of Brazilian plume flowers.

Cutting propagation method of Brazilian plume flowers

When carrying out cutting propagating Brazilian plume flowers, you need to cut 15 cm branches from the mother plant.4 nodes should be reserved on the second branch and 2 pairs of leaves should be reserved on the top. Choose bran ash and wet sand for preparation, the depth of cuttings can be about 3 cm. The soil needs to be kept moist during rooting, and as the branches acclimate to their surroundings, they can be given gentle light. The following are steps of cutting propagation method of Brazilian plume flowers

1. Select cuttings

For Brazilian plume Flower cutting propagation, the first step is to select sturdy stems from the mother plant and cut them about 15cm in length. The cuttings should be made at 1/5 of the nodes so that the branches can take root and sprout. 4 nodes should be kept at the top and 2 pairs of leaves should be kept at the top.

2. Soil preparation

Brazilian plume flower cutting soil requirements will also be relatively high, and we can choose bran ash and wet sand equal amounts of mixing preparation, so that the soil loose ability is strong, and also will not appear the phenomenon of water, which is conducive to the rooting and future growth of branches. After the preparation of the need to be placed in the sun for sterilization exposure.

3. Cutting into soil

The prepared branches are directly cuttings to the soil, the depth of cuttings can be about 3 cm, cutting too deep is not conducive to the roots of branches, cuttings after the completion of the need to level the soil. After watering to keep the soil moist, it will be moved into a cool environment for maintenance.

4. Management after cutting

Cutting when the temperature of the need to maintain between 20 ℃ and 30 ℃. If the temperature is too low will affect the rooting rate of shoot. After cutting, light should not be too strong, and other branches to adapt to the surrounding environment. We can give it a small amount of light, often by spraying water into the soil. The Moist environment can promote fast take root branches.

Sowing propagation method of Brazilian plume flowers

Cutting propagation method of Brazilian plume flowers can be in the first place in the spring when the seed is clean, and need to put it to dry in the shade, with rotten leaves, bark, perlite, ashes, etc. According to 5:2:2:1, the proportion of mixed matrix, it needs to be 2 cm deep in the soil, sowing seeds and need to keep the loose soil, patiently waiting for the seeds to germinate.

The following are steps of sowing propagation method of Brazilian plume flowers.

1. Seed treatment

Brazilian plume flowers, if planted with seeds, we need to select good seeds in the spring. The seeds are first washed with water, then the seeds are placed in a cool place to dry. Before planting them with potassium permanganate disinfection treatment, avoid the plant caused by pests and diseases.

2. Configuration basin soil

In fact, the method of sowing and breeding Brazilian plume flowers is very simple. When sowing propagating the plants, a container with a diameter of 10cm should be selected, and a mixture of leaf rot soil, bark, perlite and ashes should be used as the substrate in a ratio of 5:2:2:1, so that the seeds can take root and germinate quickly.

3. Sow and plant

Each time the plants are seeded and reproduced, they can actually be placed on the bottom of the container with a clay tile pad, which can help the seeds drain in the soil. The treated seeds are planted in the pot soil to a depth of 2cm. It is best to spray the soil with carbendazim once, so as to avoid the damage of pests and diseases to the plants.

4. Management measures

Every time you plant a seed in a pot, do not press down the soil. Water the soil immediately if it dries up, and loosen the substrate properly. Put the pot in a stigmatizing environment, preferably at a temperature of about 15 ° C, to encourage the seeds to germinate.
