Hello dear gardeners, gardeners and gardeners! Today, the program will be devoted to indoor plants. We will rest a little from seedlings, from the garden, so we will take up such a plant called eucharis. A plant of exceptional beauty. You can see this plant in bloom on the screen behind me. That is, the flowers of this plant, reaching 10-12 cm, even in indoor conditions. Flowers of extraordinary beauty. Smell - just do not move away from the plant when it blooms. And I would like to note that the plant is considered difficult to grow.Candidate of Agricultural Sciences Nikolai Petrovich Fursov
In fact, if you know any subtleties about it, then, in general, this plant - yes, this is part of the original, because it has been divided many times, distributed many times. Roughly speaking, this plant is more than 40 years old. This plant has no rest period. This is also an evergreen plant, therefore, unlike other bulb plants, requires a slightly different approach. We should not, for example, amaryllis, dig or store in a dry room, keep it without watering. No, we almost always treat him with the same respect. Uniform watering, very good lighting. Dear friends, when you look for well-lit areas in your apartment, say, a window on the south side, you must always shade in the scorching sun. As you can see, there is a leaf that leaned against the window, and even in this spring period the sun is already so hot that it just burned the plant. You can leave this leaf if it does not irritate you much. If it is very annoying - you yourself are to blame for this, if you allow this, then you will have to cut it off. Although this is still to the detriment of the plant. All juices that come from fading leaves go into the bulb, which contributes to its development, the development of children.
By the way, children do not grow very quickly. The plant blooms only if the bulb is in very dense conditions. Bulbs should be about five to six. Plant one onion - do not think that it will bloom next year or in two or three years. Until it grows with at least three onions, the eucharis will not bloom.
Now I want to show you the root system of this plant, I want to tell you how to divide it. For example, we divide only when at least five, or even six, bulbs are formed. Only in this case can the plant be divided.
We take a pot, it was in a pot, so so ugly. We tap harder on the pot, and try to pull it out. If the plant is not pulled out, then you must definitely go along the perimeter with a knife. But I hope that after all I’ll get out of here now.We take out Eucharis from the pot
Look, the plant has come out. Here is the root system. In principle, even this lump of land is not much overgrown with roots. Usually everything is white here on the surface. Therefore, you can divide it, but honestly, I even feel sorry for sharing it. To divide - just tear in half, and each resulting dividend, in which several bulbs, just put in a separate container. But I even feel sorry to touch him, because there are not so many roots. Only at the bottom. And here is not yet braided by roots. Therefore, I’ll do a transshipment now, all the more so when the transplant and the transshipment can be exactly the same. Then just this pot is very useful to me.
We pick up the pot is not much larger than it was, in diameter. So he came in, and a little bit there is a small reserve. First, we pour, as always, drainage material. Here you can use gravel, for example. We pour gravel, distribute on the bottom. The soil should consist of one part of ordinary turfy, leafy soil. It can be found on any site and make such soil, or bought in a store. One part of river sand, one part of peat, and non-acid peat. Peat reaction should be around 6.5-7. And certainly vermicompost. Many of you have not used this fertilizer yet. But, in no case, you can not use humus or compost from the site, especially with still suspicious ripening.
Poured. Suppose you have a mixture of soil. They put a flower, and we fall asleep all the voids that we have formed, in a circle, tightly tighten.
As some change in this environment, you can simply add biohumus on top. They took a good, reliable biohumus, and you can simply make it from above as a nutrient layer.We transfer eucharis with a lump of earth into a slightly larger pot
Immediately after this, we irrigate and expose our plants to a bright place where they will grow.
My dears, I wish you all the best. Be sure to have this wonderful flower called eucharis at home, and enjoy the flowering. As a rule, it blooms in winter - November, December, January, February. In these four months they will bloom with you. You can accustom them to one flowering time, just by caring for the plant. You will understand how to care for it to bloom either in November, or in December, or even later. But be sure to understand this and will drive out practically, make this plant bloom, at least for the New Year.
I wish you great success, and say goodbye to you, I say goodbye, until the next meeting!
