Video: Growing Greenery On A Windowsill In Winter. Good Advice. Video
Hello dear gardeners, gardeners and flower growers! Today we will talk with you about greens, or rather, about those green crops that can be grown during the winter until the next plantings on the window.
Well, if celery did not grow in your garden, either root or leaf, you will need to buy one. See what condition you should get the plant in. So that the leaves were pretty, these are such healthy, white roots. The longer the better. Take a look. These are the plants.
This is celery. The roots can even be said to be excessive, large. So before we put them in a jar of water - and plants can be grown, even better, these plants can be grown in a jar of water. Banks of 700gr are quite enough for even 2 roots to be located.
What do we do first? We remove old leaves, all leaf remnants. We remove it so that the clean ones are broken. Then we look: the leaves are very large and, you see, they even wrapped a little, because the root failed to provide them with moisture. And I still advise you to remove some of the leaves so that the root system can cope with the provision of moisture and the leaves do not lose turgor on your plants. This is how we delete.
Of course, I completely forgot to say that before starting this procedure, we properly, properly, wash the roots. Here's what we can have. You see that there is still a lot of foliage here - you can remove it like this, for example, another leaf. Deleted.
And this root system, having started its work, will provide good nutrients, by passing through the tuber or through the roots - they are large enough - will ensure and maintain the normal development of the leaf apparatus.
So the roots are too big. Let's shorten them a little. You can do this with scissors, you can do it with a pruner. See, please, this is how we shorten the roots, put them in water so that the roots look down.
In this way. If the spine is large, then we place one in such a jar. If the roots, for example, are not very large and fit a couple, then you can have a couple. This is how we crop. Don't be afraid to trim. And we also place them - after all, in one bank, I think now they will fit with us. No, they don't fit. Let's take the second can then. The most important thing is to place the plant in this way.
Yes, here the leaves still need to be removed. There are too many of them - the roots will not cope. Therefore it is better to delete. Here, we tear off right under the base, under the base. In this way. Do not be afraid. The plant will only say thank you for the fact that we still relieved it of unnecessary loads. So we put the second one in this water.
You know, in spite of the fact that the nutrients will come either from the tuber or from the roots, it is still better if you take and throw, for example, a tablet of activated carbon into some water and throw it. We just throw it and gradually it gets wet with us. And it will be very good food for our plants.
We do the same with parsley. If the root is small and the tip is a little wilted or blackened, then you can cut it a little. Do not be afraid. A little bit like this - once and cut. If the roots are still so large and they will not fit into the jar in such a straight, vertical state, then it is best to trim them so that they do not bend and do not look up. Like this.
Here we also need to remove the extra leaves so that there are few of them. Well, let's say, from such a mass of leaves, we can leave, only one third of the youngest leaves. Yet the old, broken, bent ones must be removed.
The most important thing is that when located in a bank - let me show you what we should see with you - we should see the location of the roots like this. Here, you see, I even cut the roots a little. They can be trimmed like this. Like this. We place it in the jar so that the rosette of leaves, this rosette of leaves, you see, yes, is located above the water level.
You cannot have a rosette of leaves, the beginning of a rosette of leaves in water. In this case, only the rhizome itself, the roots, will be in the water, and only in this case there will be no bacterial and fungal diseases. There is no need to completely change the water. Add every week, or once every 10 days, add one tablet of activated carbon per plant. And water, if necessary, just add.
Luchok. Well, you all know, the onion often sprouts in you. You remove these dry roots, remove the unsightly covering scales, if any, cut off a little bit of the tip. Here, about the shoulders, a little higher. See, yes? In this way - once, cut off. Here's what happened.
And put in a jar of water. Same. It is not necessary to deeply deepen the bulb. Only so that literally the bottom on the bulb touches the water or is slightly deepened, say, 3-5mm. Here, it doesn't touch yet. And from time to time, simply, take and pour some water.
When the roots grow, it will be much easier for the green mass to reproduce itself. And you will consume fresh, fragrant, tasty onions from your windows in the kitchen or in the room. And someone, perhaps, even on the insulated balcony will arrange such plantings. It is not at all necessary to plant these crops in pots with soil, when they can grow very well in an aqueous solution - activated carbon and water.
I wish you great success and, of course, such healthy, tasty, wonderful greenery on your windows.
