3. Brovallia is beautiful
One of the most unpretentious flowering indoor plants, brovallia can surprise you not only with beautiful greenery, but also with its endurance, relentless flowering and versatility. And although this plant is much more modest than most indoor soloists, it is difficult to find equal to brovallia in the cuteness of cultures.
Blooming beautiful brovallia (Browallia speciosa) continues almost throughout the year, traditionally from February to November.
The flowers resemble violets in shape due to the 2 narrower lateral lobes and the asymmetry of the corolla. This plant is related to violets and a small bright eye around the tiny center of the flower.
Brovallia flowers are tubular, with a wide open violet-shaped corolla, bloom in the leaf axils one at a time, rather large, from 2 to 3 to 5 cm in diameter.
The color range of this culture is quite limited. White, blue, lilac and violet, in all the richness of blue tones, are presented in brovallia with rich and beautiful options.
Despite the fact that brovallia became famous, first of all, as a beautifully flowering culture, the leaves of this plant also delight you with their beauty. Intensely light green, sometimes not with herbaceous, but with emerald hues, they are densely located on numerous thin shoots, creating a compact or more elongated bush. The perfect oval shape with pointed edges and deep veins emphasize the beauty of the greenery of the brovallia. Thanks to the leaves, the bushes look elegant and neat. The maximum plant height in a room does not exceed 35 cm.
Brovallia can be used as a flower bed, container, ampelous garden or balcony culture, but it feels great in indoor conditions. Brovallias prefer to be cool during flowering, but do not tolerate cold. In normal room conditions, they feel very good. But they must winter in the cool, at a temperature of about 15 degrees. It is not only a thermophilic, but also a sun-loving plant that is not afraid of direct sunlight and needs the brightest possible lighting.
In order for the plant to remain compact, brovallia must be formed or treated with special growth inhibitors. But it will help in the task of getting a lush bush and the right choice of variety: many modern brovallias can boast of increased bushiness. This culture will have to regularly remove wilting inflorescences. Other than that, caring for brovallias is amazingly simple. Plants are content with one single feeding in early spring, which gives a start to powerful development and flowering. Watering is carried out carefully, maintaining a light stable soil moisture, but brovallia is more afraid of drying out the substrate than overflow.
This plant can be obtained from seeds or from cuttings that are cut from the tops of non-flowering young shoots.
With brovallias, you need to be very careful, because the plant belongs to the most poisonous and requires extreme caution in working with both above-ground and underground parts.
