Eternal Flame is native to Brazil in South America. Introduced and cultivated in China, it is one of the few Mosaic and leaf-sharing plants in Araceae. What are the propagation methods of Eternal Flame? Here is a brief introduction of propagation methods of Eternal Flame.
Eternal Flame usually propagates separately. The spring temperature of 20℃ is ideal, but it can be propagated throughout the year as long as the temperature and humidity are appropriate. To cut a root block with stem, leaf, or leaf bud with a sharp knife during reproduction; Small amount of propagation can be cut with stem leaves and leaf buds of the root block directly placed in the devi; When propagating in large numbers, should be placed on the seedbed; When the temperature and humidity do not meet the requirements, film cover shall be applied. The temperature in the film must reach 20-28℃ and humidity above 80%.
Cutting propagation of Eternal Flame generally uses apex shoots, cuttings are 10-15cm long, depending on the size of the leaves, one-third or one-half of the leaves are retained. Cuttings are treated with 500ppm acetic acid for 2-3 seconds, indoleacetic acid, indolebutyric acid and ABT root powder can also be used. After the processing, insert in the seedbed, the spacing of 5×10 cm is better. The top was covered with a membrane bow-shed, and the management method was the same as that of individual plant propagation. Cutting propagation can be carried out at any time when the temperature is not less than 20℃. Cuttings rooting for 30-50 days; However, the survival rate of cuttage is not as high as that of split-plant propagation. Generally around 50%.
This is the introduction of the propagation methods of Eternal Flame how to reproduce Eternal Flame. Eternal Flame is neither cold nor dry, and is afraid of the hot sun. It prefers a warm, wet and bright environment.
