Surely each of us has at least one flower in the house. This is a beautiful creation of nature that is infinitely pleasing to the eye. This beauty is able not only to create coziness and comfort in our home, but also to purify oxygen in the room. So indoor plants are not only beautiful, but also useful. Getting home plants is not a problem, the main thing is proper care. It's a shame when your flowers dry, wither and disappear. How to ensure proper care of indoor plants?
Which pot to choose for transplant
If your plant is from the palm family, or a representative of beautiful roses, they should be grown in the deepest pots, it is desirable that the width of the top of the pot is as close as possible to the height of the pot itself. For other flowers, such as cyclamen and bulbous flowers, low pots or bowls are more suitable, in which the width of the upper part is several times greater than the height.
It is better to choose clay pots and other types of vessels used for planting and transplanting flowers. Earthenware, metal and oil-painted pots are not quite suitable for planting indoor plants, as they do not allow air to pass through. And, as you know, air access to flowers is necessary. All pots for plants, in the bottom, should have through holes that will allow excess water to drain into the pan.
Before transplanting the plant into a new pot, the vessel must be thoroughly soaked and dried. If old pots are used, they must be thoroughly washed in hot water. It is also recommended to wash the pots outside with hot water, even if the flower has been growing in it for several years.
Plant transplant and transshipment
There are many visible signs that the plant needs to be transplanted. So, for example, if your plant has stopped growing, this is the first sign that roots have begun to actively develop and there is not enough space for them in a cramped pot, transplant it into a pot more, but not much, but about two centimeters more in width and height. Thus, you will help the plant grow again and please you. It is also possible yellowing of the leaves, underdeveloped leaves that have grown, premature shedding of flowers, etc.
Do not be alarmed, all these problems are easy to fix. It is enough to transplant the plant into a new soil, carefully processing a new pot. All yellowed leaves must be cut off, as they pull on all the nutrients intended for the growth and flowering of the plant.
It should be remembered that evergreens are transplanted together with the soil, which has already taken hold on the roots of the plant. The best period for this procedure will be from February to May. But deciduous plants must be transplanted in spring or autumn, during their dormant period. The size of the pot should not always increase during transplantation, if the roots of the plant rot and require pruning, respectively, the size of the pot may be the same, or even smaller.
The required amount of water during transplantation should be taken into account especially with the requirements of the plant.
The land intended for replanting should be carefully checked for foreign objects. When everything is ready, we can proceed with the transplant itself.
Place drainage at the bottom of the pot, then pour a small amount of earth on it, then lower the lump of the transplanted plant. It is recommended that the root collar - the place where the root merges into the stem - is below the edges of the pot.
You should not tamp the earth and fill the pot tightly to the top. It will be much better for the plant if the soil is a little loose, and if the plant is flowering, it can be compacted a little. As a rule, transplanting affects the growth of the plant, so after you have transplanted the plant, you need to water it a little and place it in a darkened place for a dormant period. Do not be alarmed if your plant will not grow for a while, this is normal after transplanting.
