Scadoxus multiflorus, after propagating, will grow more plants. So, what are the propagation methods of Scadoxus multiflorus? Normally, it propagates by splitting and sowing. Next, let's see details of these two propagation methods of Scadoxus multiflorus.
Scadoxus multiflorus is a bulbous plant with a subterranean bulb, so when it comes to propagation, it can be propagated by bulbous reproduction.
The splitting propagation of Scadoxus multiflorus is usually done in the spring and can be done in combination with repotting. Remove the soil from the plants of Scadoxus multiflorus and gently break off the newly grown pellets around the mother ball of Scadoxus Multiflorus. Then plant them separately.
Scadoxus multiflorus can be potted or planted in the ground for bulb reproduction. Since the mother balls of Scadoxus Multiflorus are weak in meritrifying and in forming daughter balls, they are usually divided into bulbs once every 2 to 3 years. Note that when dividing into bulbs, bulbs should not be buried too deeply and should be watered moderately after germination to avoid water accumulation.
Scadoxus multiflorus can also propagate by seeding in addition to multiplying by pellets.
The seeds of Scadoxus multiflorus will mature and be ready for harvest in about 50 to 60 days after the flowers of Scadoxus multiflorus are withered. Generally, it is better to harvest and sow at any time.
Sowing propagation of Scadoxus multiflorus is mainly done in pots. If the growing conditions are suitable, the seeds will germinate in about 15 days. Seedlings of Scadoxus multiflorus grow slowly and need about four to five years of cultivation before they bloom.
After propagating, Scadoxus multiflorus needs proper maintenance, which is conducive to its growth and flowering.
The above are two propagation methods of Scadoxus multiflorus, namely splitting and sowing. Hopefully, these will help you when you propagate Scadoxus multiflorus.
