Clivia cultivation is a big problem. Let’s see if the pot is right first. In this way, the oil on the leaves doubles the size of the flower buds.
In the winter, the days are idle, and the flower friends have time to take care of the Clivia, but if the care is not taken seriously, all kinds of problems will come. “Why did Clivia lose its leaves, why did Clivia stop growing, why did Clivia lose its stem, why did Clivia lose its roots?” These are the questions that flower friends have reported most to Xiaohui recently. Xiaohui wanted to know how her friends raised her to cause Clivia to strike?
After thinking about it, Xiaohui felt that everyone made the same mistake, that is, not choosing the right flower pot. In the previous sharing, Xiaohui once said that Clivia is not easy to maintain. In fact, it is more general. Specifically, many situations are caused by the wrong selection of flower pots, such as rotten roots, yellow leaves or even stagnation. long. Clivia is not the same as ordinary flowers. Its root system is more sensitive, and its soil requirements are stricter. It must be well ventilated. So the soil environment is mostly dependent on the flower pot. Planting Clivia is most afraid of “using the wrong pot”, and it will be in vain to make a mistake in one step. So, what kind of flower pot is suitable for the growth of Clivia? Let’s take a look at it together.
First, the pot is the right size
It is very important to choose flower pots when planting Clivia, and the size of the flower pot is the primary concern. This should be determined according to the size of the plant. The root system of the plant is not too large. You can choose a flower pot with a general diameter slightly larger than the diameter of the root system. It does not need to be too large, because it is best to change the pot for Clivia once a year. The pot is not good, and it is easy to grow roots without leaves, resulting in slow growth.
Second, the pot material is suitable
Clivia planting is suitable for masonry pots or ceramic pots, because most of the Clivia potted plants you see on the market use ceramic pots, in fact, there are certain reasons. Compared with plastic flower pots, ceramic pots have better air permeability and more beautiful appearance, which is in line with the temperament of Clivia. In fact, planting Clivia mainly depends on the material, and flower pots with good air permeability and affinity are the most suitable.
Third, the flower pot has good ventilation
The air permeability of planting Clivia flower pots is better, because its roots are aerial roots, which are more sensitive to water, so the pot soil is not suitable for water accumulation. Choose flower pots with air holes at the bottom, so that no matter how you raise them, they are breathable. Planting Clivia usually chooses to place a layer of breathable stones or crushed foam on the bottom of the flowerpot, which can not only prevent the soil from leaking, but also increase the permeability.
