An openwork gray-green wall with a cloud of multi-colored moths on it. The breeze will blow, the cloud will move, it seems that now hundreds of moths will fly up, but no, they all sit still, but the aroma will fly up and dizzy. This is sweet pea
Recently, Ethiopian zantedeskia has become very popular among connoisseurs of indoor flowering crops. To start a calla, an evergreen half-bollard, a florist will need, first of all, a fairly spacious room.
Anderson's Tradescantia is a little-known plant, and I hardly found it in reference books, but when I found it, I was even more surprised. After all, I had known room Tradescantia for a long time, but my Tradescantia was not like it.
This plant amazes with a variety of varieties with truly royal flowers of the most striking colors and can rightfully compete with many other exotic flowering plants from the tropics and subtropics.
In the tropics of South America, in the mountain forests, a genus of lovely bulbous plants from the amaryllis family grows. It is called Eucharis and includes about a dozen species. Translated from Greek, the name means "super graceful, super pleasant"
Modern varieties, which number more than 10,000, have corollas not only of a monochromatic color, but also with strokes, stripes; bicolor. Flowers of double and triple color are especially effective when the color of the calyx and corolla is painted in contrast or in tone.
All hyacinths are calm about forcing, you can even say that getting a hyacinth flower in the middle of winter at home is easy, but you need to know some of the subtleties.
On sale, plants are in the phase of green leaves, indicated by buds, at the beginning of flowering and in full dissolution. To admire the fragrant blooming hyacinth for a longer time, you need to choose a plant with a flower arrow in the buds and 1-2 open flowers.
It is usually called geranium, but this is not entirely correct. The generic name Pelargonium was given to this plant by Lerinier de Brunnel for an interesting feature. After pollination, the flower column lengthens, and the fruit becomes similar to the beak of a stork (from the Greek "stork" - "pelargos")
Representatives of the gusset family have been living in our homes for a long time. The name is explained by the similarity of the opened fruit with the tail of a swallow. The most common genus of this family is hoya. The most common hoya is fleshy or waxy ivy.
I understand the bewilderment of flower growers: how did amaranth get into the number of indoor plants? But this is how floral astrologers classify this plant. And, although amaranth is usually grown outdoors, sometimes it is kept at home.
It is very useful to keep periwinkle on the windowsill, it has cytotoxic and antimicrobial activity. In addition, it is a very beautiful plant and can rightfully take pride of place in the "pharmacy on the windowsill" next to Indian onions and aloe
This is a climbing liana, 5-6 m long.It has creeping, woody stems and opposite, fleshy, shiny dark green leaves (5-8 cm long, 3-4 cm wide), oblong-oval, short-pointed, on short petioles
The soil for the hippeastrum needs to be prepared nutritious and loose. I make it from sifted earth, compost, washed coconut substrate, vermiculite and fertilizer. I mix them well and fill the pots, on the bottom of which sphagnum is already placed
Lisianthus is easy to confuse with a rose - this flower is gorgeous in bouquets. Hundreds of its varieties are striking in their magnificence and variety. There are species with buds that fit in the palm of your hand, others reach seven or even ten centimeters in size.
This houseplant has attracted the attention of flower growers for many years. It is impossible to calmly walk past the blooming gloxinia. Its huge bright inflorescences-bells seem to invite you to stop and "make an acquaintance"
All over the world the pot culture of medium-sized evergreen rhodendrons is called "azalea". However, botanists now commonly use the term "azalea" to refer to only a subgenus in the genus Rodendron.
For indoor growing, miniature and indoor roses are well suited. They are not so capricious, and it is easier to endure life within four walls. But there are certain rules for successful cultivation, the main of which is bright diffused light and cool air.
Fuchsia hybrid obtained from crossing several types of fuchsia. She has flexible branches covered with opposite green leaves, often falling off. The stems of young plants have a reddish tint; with age, they become lignified and acquire a light brown color.
Magazines and "flower" reference books and calendars practically do not write about this plant. And the seeds of this culture can not be seen in every store or garden center. Meanwhile, it is in many ways a wonderful ornamental plant.
In the Leningrad region, amaryllis is grown, as a rule, in containers, which are exposed in the garden for the summer and stored in a cool room in winter. Most amaryllis bulbs form flowers every year if conditions are right.
The hippeastrum is multiplied by children, which are formed near the mother's bulb. At the same time, there is such a strange pattern: the more beautiful the variety, the less often and fewer children it grows. But every year mongrels have babies
A pot for a hippeastrum is selected with such a diameter that no more than 3-4 cm of free space remains around the bulb at the planting level. The soil mixture should be nutritious, since top dressing starts from the moment of flowering, and not earlier.
Pruning is required for fuchsia after a dormant period, in February - March. Fuchsia is usually propagated by cuttings. The transfer of fuchsias of any age is done when the roots are completely entwined with a ball and appear from the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
At the word primrose, my soul feels very good, I immediately recall my childhood, when I feasted on the slightly sweet stalks of "lamb", as it is sometimes called. Amazing, delicate, in general, simple flowers cannot leave anyone indifferent
Gloxinias are an example of an excellent houseplant that blooms profusely in rooms throughout the summer. The most popular types of gloxinia are called fine and hybrid.
In my garden, there are many beautifully flowering summer plants and perennials, but recently I began to be attracted by some home flowers, which, falling into the garden for the summer, reveal their possibilities so brightly that I increase their range every year.
There are quite a few options for using fuchsia for decorative purposes. You can create a flowering curtain on the window, plant several varieties of fuchsia on one bush or standard tree, or even grow a fuchsia bonsai ..

Fertilizers for indoor plants: 6 rules of application
The beloved ficus sheds its leaves, and the fern turned pale, although there is no apparent reason for this. Think back to the last time you "fed" them. And do not expect them to be healthy and strong if they did it for a long time.
No less light and water, our plants need nutrients - micro and macro elements. During a period of active growth, they vitally need nitrogen. Magnesium - constituent of the main leaf pigment, chlorophyll. Sulfur important for metabolism. Without phosphorus and potassium plants are unlikely to flower and bear fruit. BUT manganese, copper, zinc, boron, molybdenum enhance their growth.
How to choose the right fertilizer for indoor plants? How are they different from each other?
Specialty stores offer so many fertilizers that it can be difficult to choose the right one. Some promise longevity, others - unearthly beauty. The main thing is not to rush and do not buy everything. You cannot use everything at once.
Firstly, if you are not well versed in the matter or you just have many different colors, universal fertilizers are a good solution. They are suitable for all types of indoor plants.
Secondly, pay attention to special fertilizers for flowering and deciduous plants. The flowering ones need to be fed so that the buds do not fall off, so that they bloom and bear fruit longer. Top dressing for roses, azalea, pelargonium, gerberacontain approximately the same set of elements, but differ in their ratio, so do not rush to replace one with another. Fertilizers for decorative foliage include fertilizers for ficuses, ferns and palm trees... Thanks to them, the foliage becomes bright and beautiful, the plants fully develop and grow well.
Further, fertilizers are divided into dry and liquid... Liquid dressing is a concentrate of salts necessary for plants. It is enough to dilute them with water in a certain proportion. This fertilizer is very convenient: it can be used for both root and foliar feeding. And if your home garden is small, this option is optimal.
Dry dressing is a mixture of salts in the form of crystals or granules. Usually they are diluted in water, strictly following the instructions: an overdose is dangerous for plants. Dry food is good if you have a lot of houseplants. Small packages of fertilizers are diluted in 10–20 liters of water. There should be no sediment in the solution - stir thoroughly until completely homogeneous.
There is another way of feeding - nutritional sticks. They are small cylinders containing nutrients. Sticks are inserted into the ground with the plant. Their number depends on the volume of the pot. With each watering, part of the fertilizer dissolves and goes to the roots. The advantage of this method is that you can forget about feeding for a while. In addition, this way you will definitely not exceed the norm. However, there are also disadvantages. First, fertilizers dissolve regardless of the state of the plant and the phase of its development (active growth, flowering, fruiting, dormant period). And secondly, it is rather difficult to understand when the sticks no longer work.
You can feed flowers in different ways. If you water them with a solution of nutrients, the necessary nutrition will come through the root system. it root feeding... And if sprayed with a spray bottle, the plant will receive "food" through the leaves. This top dressing is called foliar... In most cases, they are used interchangeably.
6 rules for using fertilizers
- Dilute the fertilizer in warm water (its temperature should be 2-3 C higher than the ambient temperature).
- Feed only healthy plants - feeding makes flowers more vulnerable, pests multiply more actively.
- When foliar feeding, the plant should not be in direct sunlight.
- From March to October, plants need to be fed every two weeks during the flowering period - once a week. In winter, feeding is carried out once a month or less.
- Stop feeding 2-3 weeks before transplanting and continue one month after transplanting if the plant is well established.
- If you will propagate the plant by cuttings or dividing, you should also stop feeding 2-3 weeks before this.
Do not forget that the most important qualities of a grower are moderation and accuracy. If you increase the concentration of fertilizers, this will not improve the condition of the plants, but, on the contrary, can lead to burns of the root system, damage to the leaves, the plant may even die.
Transplanting houseplants with a complete land replacement
First you need to pick up a pot that should be 2-3 centimeters larger than the one in which the plant grew before transplanting. If it has one drainage hole (this is typical mainly for ceramic flower pots), then it is highly advisable to put a clay shard on the hole with the convex side up. If there are several holes or there is no suitable shard, then you can do without it, but the drainage material must have such a fraction that it does not block the holes. Then the drainage material itself is poured. Usually, unless specifically stated for a particular houseplant, the layer height should not exceed 10% of the height of the flowerpot. To prevent the formation of various rot, it is advisable to add some charcoal (small pieces) to the drainage layer. After the drainage layer has been prepared, a little soil is poured onto it in a cone-shaped slide.
Now you can start removing the plant from the old pot. Before transplanting, to facilitate this procedure, the plant must be watered abundantly or immersed in a container of water so that the earth in it is thoroughly soaked. This is especially important when the pot is spherical with a taper at the top. The potted plant is taken in one hand and turned upside down. In most cases, the pot is easily removed from the earthen coma, but if it goes tight, then use your free hand or a wooden stick to lightly tap the sides and bottom of the pot.
Now we need to cleanse the roots of the old earth. For many indoor plants, this will not be difficult. Often, the earth itself crumbles from them after being removed from the pot. But there are also many such plants that, during the time between transplants, completely entwine an earthen lump, in fact, becoming one with it. In these cases, another soak will be required and a thin wooden stick will be used to remove the soil.
Advice. Thin "roots - hairs" are the most important part of the root system. They provide nutrition to the plant. Having lost them, the plant may die, despite the presence of large roots. Therefore, when freeing them from the ground, try to do it with the utmost care. The leaching of the earth helps in this. But it is not advisable to use running water from the water supply system. It is better to do this in a large container with settled water, periodically changing it if necessary.
After the roots of the flower are cleaned, you should carefully examine them, removing rotten and damaged ones. The roots, which have formed in rings along the bottom of the pot, are trimmed and straightened to the sides. Slices on the roots must be sprinkled with wood ash, ash or crushed activated carbon.
When all this is done, the houseplant can be considered ready for planting. It is placed in the central part on the top of the prepared earthen cone. At the same time, the roots are evenly distributed over its slopes.
Advice. If the flower is planted deeply, this will have a bad effect on its further development. Therefore, adjust the height of the bottom layer of earth (cone) so that the root collar of the plant is 1-2 centimeters below the top of the pot.
After that, you can fill up the rest of the earth, evenly distributing it over the diameter of the pot. To distribute the soil evenly throughout the cookware, periodically tap the sides and bottom of the pot with your palm. If you need more compaction of the earth (for large plants, for example), then you can use a sharpened wooden stick.
Advice. To make it more convenient to water in the future, do not pour soil to the very top of the pot. Lack of sleep about a couple of centimeters, this will be enough. In large flower containers, this distance can be increased.
After transplanting, the plant should not be placed immediately in a lighted place. Place it in a shaded place where you can hold it for a week or two.Water the transplanted plant immediately, while watering should be abundant, before the water flows into the pan. Exceptions can be made by some plants, for which watering is excluded after transplantation. This is usually discussed separately in the care instructions. In particular, succulent plants are left without watering for 4 days. During this time, a vitreous film forms on the damaged areas of the roots, which serves as a barrier against the penetration of pathogens into the plant tissues. In the future, watered in small portions.
If desired and possible, after transplanting, the crown of the plant is also pruned. This will reduce the evaporation area of moisture.

- Reproduction of plants There are more than 500 thousand species of flora on the planet Earth. Like all living organisms, they are able to reproduce their own kind to increase the number of individuals, that is, to reproduce. There are two types of plant reproduction: sexual and asexual. Most crops reproduce sexually through seed, fruit, flower. Includes stages: flowering, pollen treatment, fertilization, fetal formation. Asexual is divided into: cell division, spores, vegetative. The latter is of great importance in plant growing, it is often used for difficult sexual intercourse, as well as when growing indoor flowers. The vegetative method is propagation by a part of the plant. Carried out by: • root: offspring (sea buckthorn, raspberry, mint, aster), tubers (sweet potato, dahlias), cuttings (rose hips, geranium, phlox) • leaf (streptocarpus, Kalanchoe, lily) • stems: grafting (apple, plum, cherry ), layering (raspberry, ficus, carnation), mustache (bone, strawberry), stem cuttings (ivy, grapes) • underground shoots: tubers (potatoes, Jerusalem artichoke), bulbs (tulips, onions), rhizome (peony, iris). Each plant has its own way. With the help of the vegetative method, only an unchanged species can be reproduced, which does not differ in any way from the mother.

It is also important to place vegetables where it is warm, because they cannot stand the cold. To protect against cool night temperatures, you need to remove weeds that prevent the earth from heating up during the day.
