Godetia Amoena is most suitable to be planted in loose and fertile sandy soil, maintaining a growth temperature of 15 ~ 22℃ and ensuring about 6 hours of light every day. Water it thoroughly for 2 days and apply fertilizer once for 15 days. Proper pruning is conducive to the growth of plant branches and bud germination, and propagation is only the way of sowing. In the usual curing process, the prevention and control of diseases and insect pests should be done well.
Godetia Amoena should be raised in a fertile, sandy soil with good drainage. Garden soil, fine sand and coal cinder can be combined in a ratio of 5:3:2 to make mixed soil. Before planting, a layer of bottom fertilizer can be laid on the soil to ensure the nutrients for plant growth.
Appropriate temperature and adequate light are important in godetia Amoena's breeding methods and precautions. Godetia Amoena prefers a cool environment. It is advisable to keep the temperature between 15 ℃ and 22℃. For temperatures too high in summer, please pay attention to cooling; for temperatures too low in winter, please take warm measures.
Flowering plants have a greater need for light, so Godetia Amoena should ensure about 6 hours of light during breeding. Sufficient light is conducive to plant growth and the increase and opening of flowers.
Godetia Amoena likes a wet environment. Generally, water it once every 2 days. Avoid stagnant water to avoid root rot. High summer temperatures in addition to necessary water intake, also spray water around the plants to increase air humidity.
Godetia Amoena does not need much fertilizer because the soil has been laid with base fertilizer before planting, so it is basically enough to apply fertilizer once every 15 days after planting. In order to increase the quantity of buds and promote flowering, some phosphate fertilizer can be added appropriately.
During early growth, Godetia Amoena is pruned to promote branching and adjust plant type. In addition, in the daily maintenance, pruning and finishing of dead branches and yellow leaves is also essential.
Godetia Amoena mainly has two kinds of diseases, namely, vertical bacterial blight and powdery mildew. It was found that mitigation measures should be taken to move the plants to a place with better ventilation effect. If the disease is too severe, spray immediately.
Godetia Amoena can only be propagated by sowing. Plump and healthy seeds are selected. Generally, seeds are sown in September in autumn, and the temperature should be kept at 18℃ when they emerge.
