All representatives of succulents, which include aloe, can bloom. Most often this occurs in its natural habitat, where the plant is regularly exposed to droughts and significant temperature changes, which provoke flowering.In order for the aloe to bloom at home, it is necessary to create similar conditions for it.
Succulent flowering is always preceded by a dormant period, for which a significant decrease in temperature is required. To create suitable conditions, in the winter months in the room where the flower is located, the temperature must be reduced to 10-14 degrees Celsius. Such extreme conditions will awaken the aloe's desire to bloom, and you will soon notice the appearance of the first peduncles. To do this, it is better to transfer the succulent to a separate cool room, or, for example, to the balcony, and not leave it on an easily blown windowsill, because drafts will only harm the plant.
In addition to the low temperature of the aloe, it is also necessary to switch to a certain watering regime, which will contribute to a state of dormancy and further flowering. If you want the aloe to bloom, you need to minimize watering during the winter. This is due to the fact that succulents grow in countries that are characterized by long periods of drought. Keep in mind, however, that in a hot room, a lack of moisture can harm the plant. Watering should be done only after the soil in the pot is completely dry. To verify this, you can carefully dig a small hole to a depth of 3-5 cm and squeeze a small ball of earth in your hand. If it crumbles, then it's time to water the plant. But you don't need to pour water directly into the flower. For winter watering, it is enough to lower the aloe pot into a pan with a small amount of liquid for 10-15 minutes. Thus, you will satisfy the flower's need for moisture and prevent rotting of its root system.
Winter daylight hours are too short for aloe. For a plant to bloom, it needs a longer (at least 14-16 hours daily) and intense exposure to sunlight. Therefore, it is better to move the aloe to the south side, and also arrange additional lighting for it (without heating). To do this, you can use phytolamps (LED, fluorescent or sodium), which are sold in many stores.
If you follow all the conditions described above, this will lead to the appearance of the first arrow with a flower in the aloe. Depending on the type of succulent, its flower can be single or form a dense bunch. As soon as the arrow appears, it is necessary to gradually increase the temperature in the room where the plant is located. Raise the temperature from 10-14 to 22-24 degrees Celsius for 2-3 days. If this is not possible, simply move the aloe to a warmer room. Also remember to resume regular watering.
In addition to warmth and regular watering, blooming aloe needs additional feeding. The easiest way is to use a ready-made fertilizer for succulents based on potassium-phosphorus components. Apply top dressing only after watering on moist soil. To maximize the effect, it is best to use liquid forms of fertilizer. Aloe, like all succulents, is a hardy plant that is adapted to survive in the most extreme conditions. Therefore, do not be afraid that low temperature, minimal watering and lack of feeding will somehow harm him. Do not forget that this is the only way to create a long dormant period, which will provoke aloe to bloom.
There are a number of effective ways to stimulate flowering:
1. "Arrange the dark". Phalaenopsis with dry soil is placed for 5-6 days in a dark space, for example, a mezzanine. Then put it back and in three weeks the phalaenopsis will release an arrow.
2. "Dry". Do not water the orchid until the lower leaves lose their elasticity. Here it is important not to overdo it and not dry the sweat completely. Then the water is refilled (by immersion in warm water for about 15 minutes) and a preparation with a higher content of phosphorus is added.
These methods are used only for healthy and strong plants with a good root system and strong leaves.
3. But best of all, it stimulates the phalaenopsis orchid to bloom correctly and carefully. For successful cultivation, phalaenopsis requires that the night temperature of the content is always 4 ° C lower than the daytime.
For example, if during the day + 20 ° C, then at night no more than + 16 ° C. With more high (low) vibrations between the nighttime daytime temperatures, sweet sticky secretions begin to appear on the flowers and leaves of the orchid. At temperatures from + 25 ° C to + 32 ° C, orchids actively grow green mass (leaves), but bloom much worse. If your apartment is very warm and there are almost no differences between night and day temperatures, then your orchid will bloom quite rarely in such conditions.
4. In addition to the temperature difference, a well-lit place is needed. For healthy growth and abundant flowering, the phalaenopsis needs as much light as possible, however, direct sunlight should be avoided, which can burn the leaves.
The ideal option is the east window. A shaded south or west window is also acceptable. If the conditions do not suit the phalaenopsis, the flower arrows are not laid. Try to comply with the conditions to add preparations - Zircon to the polished water, and Buton and Pollen for spraying the leaves. And she will definitely bloom!
Sometimes these indoor plants do not bloom for several years. This is mainly due to improper or insufficient care, therefore, first of all, you need to understand what exactly is being done wrong.
The reason for the lack of flowering can be:
So, adeniums badly need not only abundant lighting, but also spacious, correct content. In natural nature, this desert plant is accustomed to receiving a fairly large amount of sunlight, therefore, when thinking about how to make the adenium plant bloom at home, first of all, it must be placed on a window on the south side.
If these are still young seedlings or if the succulent has too open root system, then you can choose the southeastern window sill, while the adenium should be slightly shaded.
Also, the plant may still be too young, this species begins to bloom only in the third or even in the fourth year of its life.
In good conditions, the hoya should discard buds every year and bloom from May to October. With age, flowering becomes more abundant and longer. The flowers give off a pleasant, very strong aroma, which becomes even richer by night.
Each bud blooms for several weeks, and then dries up, but the next one opens up to replace it. There is no need to cut off the faded peduncles, the next year flowers will bloom on them again.
By autumn, hoya slows down the flowering intensity and goes into a dormant state. But with good care, it can bloom again in the fall. You can achieve constant flowering if you create summer conditions in the house, but this will lead to exhaustion.
Liana will not have time to gain strength from flowering to flowering. Each subsequent swelling of the buds will be less intense, the plant is more susceptible to diseases and its condition will greatly worsen.
Many growers are faced with the problem of the lack of flowering of the Amazon Lily. Let's take a look at the most likely causes and solutions.
⃣ The pot is too spacious.
Experience shows that this is the most common cause. The fact is that Eucharis (and any plant) produces a peduncle in order to continue its genus. In a pot that is too wide, he feels very frivolous, increases the leaf mass and does not care at all about procreation, because nothing threatens him. A cramped pot triggers a genetically engineered process and the plant blooms.
The solution to the problem is transplanting into a narrower pot.
⃣ Few of the bulbs.
Eucharis is a “family” plant and, as a rule, begins to bloom when at least 5 bulbs are sitting nearby. Of course, there are exceptions when only 1 bulb can bloom on a Lily, but this happens very rarely.
The solution to the problem is just to wait for Eucharis to acquire a little family.
⃣ Lack of a dormant period.
The second most common reason. Flower stalks are laid at the Amazon Lily during sleep, as a rule, it is 1 or 1.5 winter months. At this time, the plant is placed in cooler conditions, watering is minimized and not fed.
The solution to the problem - in the current season, you can only try to stimulate the formation of buds with the help of the preparations "Bud", "Blossom", etc., but this does not guarantee a 100% result.
⃣ Incorrect care conditions. This could be:
lack of lighting (in this case, it is necessary to change the place of deployment or organize additional lighting),
too dry air (in this case, you need to spray the plant more often or wipe the leaves with a damp cloth)
drafts (change the location of the plant so that cold air gets on it).
If geranium does not bloom in indoor conditions, then you can try to transplant its garden, so there it will definitely "show" its flowers. This cannot be done with a royal look, after cutting its flowers you can wait for years.
For long-term flowering, the plant must be watered with iodized water, one drop of the composition per liter of water. One serving should contain no more than 50 ml of top dressing. Such a flowering stimulator will allow plants to bloom for a long time, changing one bud to another.
With improper or insufficient care of the agave at home, you can get a negative reaction from the plant. This can be expressed in the following symptoms:
|Growing||Grown in a pot filled with leafy and turfy soil and sand (ratio 1: 2: 1). Good bottom and top drainage is needed. In the warm season, the flower grows well at room temperature up to +25, in cold weather the temperature in the room is not desirable above 15 degrees.|
|Humidity||In a warm period, moisten the soil immediately after the top layer dries. In the winter months, watering is carried out less often - two days after the soil dries out. Air humidity is average. But you can also dry warm air. During watering, do not allow liquid to get inside the leaf outlet.|
|Top dressing and pruning||Top dressing is carried out with mineral fertilizers, from the second half of spring to early autumn, 1-2 times a month. You don't need to trim.|
|Flowering period||Aloe is grown as an ornamental and medicinal plant. At home, it blooms extremely rarely, only in ideal conditions. In the wild, it blooms in autumn and spring for several months.|
|Landing, transplanting||Transplanted after rooted germination in a year .. Transplant young plants once every 2 years, mature - once every 3-4 years.|
|Reproduction||Root shoots, rooted cuttings, cut tops and planting seeds.|
|Pests||Aphids, scale insects, mealybugs and spider mites.|
|Diseases||Most often it suffers from rot, which can appear due to abundant watering. With a lack of light, the leaves can dry out and "lose weight".|
