Chlorophytum plants have been introduced in detail yesterday. The following article is a supplement. Why do the lipstick Chlorophytum and goldfish Chlorophytum grow leaves but not bloom? Most of them are due to too much watering frequency and the soil has not dried. In fact, it is better to let the basin soil dry a little before flowering. If the branches are too long, they should be willing to prune.
1、 Introduction of lipstick Chlorophytum
Alias: flower vine grass, mouth safflower;
Its inflorescence is mostly axillary or terminal, the shape is similar to lipstick, calyx tube shape, much like the tube shell of lipstick, so it is called "lipstick Chlorophytum". Its flowering period is generally from November of the current year to June of the following year.
2、 Maintenance precautions:
Lipstick Chlorophytum is and coarse, loose and fertile sandy loam is the best, good drainage on the line. In a cool and ventilated place, scattered light can be seen, avoid strong direct light.
The suitable temperature for growth is about 15-25 ℃. From 3 to September, the water demand is relatively large during the growth period. Water should be regularly sprayed and sprayed to increase the humidity. After the autumn, water will be gradually reduced to improve the cold resistance of the plants. In addition to the strong light at noon in midsummer, adequate light should be given at other times of the year, especially in winter.
It likes semi shade environment. If the light in the place is too strong or insufficient, the leaves will easily turn light green or yellow green, lack of vitality, lose their due ornamental value, and even die of withering;
Direct sunlight, dry air, most likely to cause scorch, so should be placed in a cool and ventilated place, and pay attention to maintain environmental humidity. Avoid continuous high temperature and humidity, poor drainage and ventilation will cause rot.
3、 Daily potted maintenance
1 basin soil selection
The loose and fertile sandy loam is the best for lipstick Chlorophytum basin soil, and the drainage is as good as possible. The potted culture soil was made of peat soil, sand and vermiculite, and proper amount of superphosphate was added.
2. Suitable location
Lipstick Chlorophytum should be placed in a cool and ventilated place, and attention should be paid to the environmental humidity. Avoid continuous high temperature and humidity, poor drainage and ventilation will cause rot. Lipstick Chlorophytum is not resistant to cold, so it needs to go into the house to live through the winter.
3 light requirements
In addition to the strong light at noon in midsummer, adequate light should be given at other times of the year, especially in winter. If the location of light is too strong or insufficient, the leaves will easily become light green or yellow green.
Basin soil should always keep moist, avoid water in the basin, so as to avoid root rot. From 3 to September, the water demand is relatively large during the peak period of growth. Water should be regularly sprayed and sprayed to increase humidity. In autumn, the weather will gradually become cool and cold, and the amount of water and fertilizer should be gradually reduced. The basin soil should be slightly dry in winter.
When it grows vigorously, it can be picked off properly to promote branches. After the winter flowering period, the residual stems should be cut off in time, which can save nutrients, promote the development of new branches and make them more pregnant buds and bloom.
4、 Introduction to reproduction
Cutting propagation was carried out in spring and autumn. The strong and thick branches were cut into one section every 7-10 cm. They were cut in loose sandy soil, or in the culture soil mixed with 50% of fine snake sawdust, 20% of pearl stone and 30% of coarse sand. With proper humidity and receiving 50-60% sunshine, the branches can grow into seedlings after 30-40 days. After the roots grow vigorously, they can be transplanted into pots or flower beds for cultivation.
PS: less nitrogen fertilizer should be applied at flowering stage, the intensity of indoor light should be increased, and the lower room temperature should be controlled to promote its flowering. After the winter flowering period, the residual stems should be cut off in time, which can save nutrients, promote the development of new branches and make them more pregnant buds and bloom.
Sometimes the apical bud of lipstick Chlorophytum will necrosis without any reason, which is caused by the lack of calcium fertilizer. At this time, appropriate amount of calcium fertilizer should be applied, and the phenomenon of terminal bud necrosis will disappear.
5、 Pest protection:
Lipstick Chlorophytum plants are strong, not easy to occur diseases and insect pests, but if the basin soil water and poor ventilation, in addition to causing rotten roots, may also occur root rot.
The diseased plants were sprayed or watered with 40% genfuning, or the roots were irrigated with 402 EC.
