Amaryllis Belladonna-another name that means “beautiful lady”. This beauty is a perennial plant, lukovichnoe onion, which can reach up to in diameter 15 cm. Leaves-lilejno-jazykovidnye, length 30-50 cm and a width of 2-3 cm. Large (up to 20 cm in diameter), beautiful flowers are located on dense high flower arrows. As beauty, flower, but if capricious enough care and attention, large healthy bulbs are capable of simultaneously disposed to 2 ‘s shooter, which can be 6-12 flowers in white, pink or red flowers with a pleasant aroma.
amarillisa Landing : select a pot and soil
To amarillisa is not so much a wide, how many deep pot. This is because the bulb in development builds a long root system. Optimally, if the distance from the bulb to the edge of the pot will not exceed 1.5-2 cm. Wide pot can cause stagnant water.
at the bottom of the pot stack drainage substance that will prevent water actually roots. Then in a pot fill ground-it is possible to prepare yourself (mix in equal parts dernovuju and flat earth, peat and sand) or purchase ready-made mixture for bulbous plants.
before boarding an onion must be thoroughly inspect by removing all roots and severed from the train station where there are suspicious spots. Then, to disinfect the flesh, it is soaked in a solution of potassium permanganate weak concentration. Place slices preferably prisypat pounded charcoal.
amarillisa on landing on the surface of leaves at least 1 3 (sometimes even half) of the bulb (Photo 1). Too recessed onion is one of the main reasons why not bloom Amaryllis: simply will not develop flower arrows, and can sometimes divide the bulb itself.
the Council! after planting a bulb at first watered not on top, and pour water into the pan.
as Amaryllis is perennial, the following transplant, under normal conditions of development of bulbs , it will need through 3-4 years.to content↑
Amaryllis: home-based care
to display Amaryllis a rest condition, encourage vegetation and achieve flowering, it must be done in a warm (+20-25С) room and put in a bright place. Optimum lighting is diffused sunlight, summer (11 to 3:00 pm) should avoid direct sunlight. So the best place for flower-Eastern, South-Eastern window sills. For normal vegetative development of the flower requires a light day of at least 4:00 pm.
the Council! the beginning of vegetation you can choose yourself, assuming that when you need to bloom, for example, closer to a specific date. Blooming Amaryllis can become a wonderful replacement (or supplement) to the traditional bouquet (his photo quite often can be found on sites specializing in composing flower arrangements).
signal of vegetation period began would become arrow born out of the bulb. It is very important to remember that until the arrow will grow to 10 cm in height, amaryllis do not need watering. At deficiency of moisture the plant will direct efforts on flower development, otherwise the buildup of hardwood pulp, so fewer flowering forces flower arrow begins to evolve slowly and flowers would look smaller. In the future, watering must be conducted so that moisture doesn’t drip on the bulb by gently pouring soft water to defend the edge of the pot.
[advice! during the active growing season flower starting to feed (every two weeks) to nutrient depleted, not alternating between mineral and organic fertilizers.
how to care for amarillisom: dormancy
usually flowering amarillisa begins in bezlistnom State, leaves begin to emerge later. After flowering, when the flower stalks will dry up eventually, leaves are not cut off, and the plant for some time continue to feed. Then watering and feeding cut, and after a couple of months, ceased almost completely-the flower goes into dormancy. At this time the pot with onion preferably move in a cool (but not below + 10° c), without bright lighting, where he must stay for about three months with minimal watering. Then you can put the flower grew.
at home is easy enough to achieve bloom twice a year, with a well-developed bulbs can appear immediately two flower arrows. If the bulb gives the third arrow, it is best to uninstall it. Due to “excess” flowering bulb can overly exhausted and next year will take on restoring forces. In addition, the quality of the flowers (number, colour, size) the third arrow is essentially conceding the first two.to content↑
like other alliaceous Amaryllis reproduces in two ways-seeds and bulbs, which separate the child from the parent color when transplanting. This is the easiest and most reliable method of propagation, which ensures complete safety of varietal characteristics. For planting children take the same bulbs pot as for 4-5 summer bulbs, soil mixture and embedding should be similar to the parent bulb. Young plants develop very quickly from the Office before flowering may take 3 years.
seed-Reproduction process longer (flowering will come only at the 7 year) and complex. For seeds will have to carry out pollination of the flower and wait about a month (as much as aging continues seeds). Since the seeds remain just 5-6 germination weeks then do not delay their landings. Planting seeds is carried out in a well moistened the ground, sprouts will appear approximately in a month.
one more widely practiced method of propagation is a division of large bulbs, while the main thing is that each delenka had a few old scales and slice stems. Bulb vertical cutters cut through a few parts need slices immediately prisypat pounded charcoal or ashes. Between Gores, along the incisions to insert needles to delenki formed more quickly (Photo 2)
approximately one month on delenkah should appear first leaves after the second-you can separate them permanently and planted separately in loose ground.to content↑
in spite of the fact that the Amaryllis is a very warm herb, it often enough can be found pictured in the garden, for example, open beds even in Midland. Landing in open ground has several advantages:
- Amaryllis outdoors recruited more strength, better grow, give a larger (as compared with domestic instances) floral branch, flowering is more profuse and lasts longer (up to 8 weeks)
- the bulbs are increasing much more kids, that gives an opportunity to fall out of its propagation
in the garden for amarillisa must choose well-lit but when the Boardwalk from the wind place. Especially the spectacularly large flowers will look at the background of the stones. Well, if the flowerbed is placed on a dais, to avoid water stagnation. Before boarding a ground specially prepared, enriching its humus and organic fertilizers. After landing in open ground Amaryllis awhile watered sparingly, creating a small deficit of moisture. Otherwise the plant will focus on building the foliage, while forces in the laying of flower buds will not be enough.
the Council! after the emergence of the flower arrows will need to establish a foothold to a gust of wind broke it.
Other Variant is planting a flower in a garden container that will give the opportunity to experiment with the placement of plants as on a bed and balcony, and when a cold put it in a warm place.to content↑
Why doesn’t the Amaryllis blooms: underlying causes
many buy amaryllis, lured by the bright eye-catching photos with vibrant colors. But quite often it turns out that the flower is cheating our expectations, flatly unwilling to bloom. First of all, the reason may be our excessive care-after the end of flowering, its leaves begin to dry out, what motivates owners dramatically strengthen the pet care: more loosened Earth, water, fertilize, repot, heal from non-existent diseases. As a result of excessive worries flower might just die-and just need to give him the opportunity to go into dormancy.
From other causes of lack of flowering Note:
- early distillation-a minimum of 3 months must pass rest to Amaryllis prepared for new flowering
- too deepened onion
- onion young and it’s still just not ready to bloom
- too high ambient temperature during the growing season
