Cyclamen transplant


Cyclamen is a capricious flowering houseplant that does not like transplanting and recovers for a long time after it. Experienced flower growers do not recommend carrying out this procedure more often than once every 3 years. But there are several reasons when you simply cannot do without a transplant.

Buying a new plant. In most cases, plants in flower shops are sold in containers with a special substrate in which the flower cannot stay for a long time and at the same time fully develop. After buying a cyclamen, it is recommended to immediately transplant the culture into the appropriate soil.

Large size of the root system of the flower. The growth of indoor cyclamens, especially in the first years of life, is very intense. Indoor crop tubers can grow so that the flower pot becomes cramped for them. Plants can stop growing or stop flowering due to the uncomfortable state. Fertilizers, watering and any other care will not correct this situation. All that remains is to transplant into a large container with a new soil mixture.

The need for soil replacement. Such a need arises if the soil has been used for a long time or if harmful insects, fungus, infection have appeared in it. Poor depleted soil cannot be made nutritious and fertile again only with the help of top dressing. And you can get rid of pests only by completely replacing the potting mix and flower container.

How to transplant cyclamen correctly

Preparing for transplant

Preparatory activities consist of choosing the correct flower container, appropriate soil and drainage material.

The size of the flower pot is of great importance for the future indoor flower and the choice must be approached very responsibly. In comfortable conditions, cyclamen develops and blooms well. In the presence of a cramped pot, the root part will suffer. In a vessel that is too wide or deep, flowering may stop, the soil in such a vessel will acidify, and root rot may appear.

A pot with a diameter of 7-8 cm is enough for a cyclamen aged from one to three years, and for older specimens - 10-15 cm. Do not use used flower containers. But if this has to be done, then only after careful treatment with disinfecting solutions or preparations. Through a pot infected with another flower, the cyclamen can get sick with root rot or other disease.

Since the transplanting process itself is stressful for cyclamen, it is worth taking care of the composition of the new soil so that the plant feels normal in this regard. The composition of the new substrate should be better than the previous one in terms of the presence of nutrients in it. You can purchase a ready-made soil mixture designed for cyclamen. When creating a substrate at home, you need to take 4 essential components - leafy soil, peat, river sand and rotted humus. These elements should be 3 times larger than all the others.

Requirements for new soil: it must be light, neutral in composition and breathable. Such a soil can consist of equal parts of sod land and coarse sand.

For drainage, it is recommended to use expanded clay, which must be treated with a disinfectant solution before being placed in a pot, and then dried well.

Start of transplant

A favorable time to start the transplant procedure is the last days of the rest period of cyclamen. As soon as young leaves begin to appear, you can start. It is not recommended to transplant a houseplant during the flowering period, even if there are some significant circumstances for this.

Transplant procedure

Transplantation due to a grown tuber is carried out together with an earthen clod. The cyclamen must be carefully removed from the old pot and transferred to a new one. When diseases and pests appear, the soil is completely replaced, and the root tubers are carefully cleaned of the old substrate before planting and the damaged and rotted root parts are removed. Before placing the plant in a new vessel with fresh soil, it is necessary to treat the tubers with a disinfecting solution and then plant them.

When transplanting a cyclamen "European" tuber is completely covered with a substrate, but it is not compacted. Tuber of the "Persian" cyclamen is sprinkled only 2/3, and the soil around it is compacted.

Timely transplantation of cyclamen promotes full growth, long life and beautiful flowering for many years.

How to care for indoor cyclamen, how to reproduce it

Cyclamen (dryak, alpine violet) many consider it a seasonal houseplant like poinsettia. It is usually bought as a gift instead of a bouquet or for oneself, in order to admire the beautiful flowering in the autumn-winter months and early spring. Only admirers of cyclamen, to whom I belong, tinker with it, create the necessary conditions during the dormant period, rejoice at the appearance of new leaves and flowers and carefully plant seedlings in tiny pots.

Cyclamen is a perennial tuberous plant, two species of which began to be grown as a houseplant. The flowering period occurs during a gloomy season, when many people suffer from autumn depression.

Blooming cyclamen is one of the most beautiful indoor plants


Cyclamen care

annually: Flowering, depending on the species.

Height: middle.

bright: Light diffused. Shade the plant from direct sunlight.

Temperature: preferably light and cool in winter (about 10 ° C, no higher than 12-14 ° C). In summer, an area with a temperature of 18-25 ° C is preferred.

Watering: During flowering, the plant is watered abundantly or moderately. After flowering, watering is gradually reduced, and by the beginning of summer, when the leaves all turn yellow and dry, and the tubers remain watered, bare and rarely at all.

Air humidity: until the buds appear, the plant is sprayed from time to time. When buds appear, spraying should be stopped, otherwise they may rot. Water can be added to a filled pan with expanded clay, pebbles or peat.

period: in Top dressing of the growth of the leaf mass before the beginning of the flowering plant, every 2 weeks they are fed with a full mineral fertilizer.

Pruning: faded and wilted flowers are removed together with the pedicel. As the flowers and leaves wilt, they are pinched off (but not cut off) at the tuber itself.

Rest Period: depending on the type. Ts. Persian has a period of rest in summer. The plant is kept in a moderately light watered place.

Transfer: late summer and autumn.

seeds: Reproduction by dividing the tuber.


Last year, my husband gave me this lovely beauty with white delicate flowers. With its flowering, the cyclamen delighted me for about two months, and then suddenly began to crumble. I tried to save as best I could and rearranged it to another place and fertilized it, but in vain, I decided to transplant, but I didn't like the tuber itself and I decided that the flower had outlived its own and simply threw it away. And then I subtracted that this flower has a dormant period when it throws its leaves, and then there is a period of active growth again. I was sad.

Now I have a new large-flowered cyclamen on my windowsill, and I know for sure that I will no longer make such a mistake.

As for the care of this flower, the cyclamen prefers a cool room (+ 13-16 degrees) with bright lighting. Best for home cyclamen are east or west windows in summer and south in winter. Do not place the cyclamen in direct sunlight or near a heat source (radiator, fireplace). Along with coolness, cyclamens prefer relatively humid air, but spraying from a spray bottle is categorically contraindicated for them.

It is better to water the cyclamen from below, leaving the flowerpot in a container with lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes, and then be sure to drain all the water before reinstalling the cyclamen in the planter. Getting on the base of the tuber and leaves of cyclamen, water can cause fungal diseases and rotting of the plant.

Withered flowers (like yellowed cyclamen leaves) should be removed by completely twisting the peduncle out of the tuber.

In early spring, the flowering of cyclamen comes to an end, over time, the leaves turn yellow and fall off. Most indoor cyclamens naturally slow down or complete their annual growing cycle in April-May. At this time, feeding of cyclamen is stopped and watering is gradually reduced. Cyclamen tuber is stored in the ground in summer, in a cool place, only occasionally slightly moistening the substrate.

In September, the cyclamen comes to life and releases new leaves. At this time, replace the top layer of the substrate with a fresh one or transplant cyclamen (see below) and soak the pot with cyclamen in water so that the soil is completely wet. Then drain the pot completely. Since that time, regular watering and feeding of cyclamen are resumed. If the care of the cyclamen is correct, then soon the plant will again release many buds and bloom.


Today I want to tell you about my unusual hobby, which unexpectedly swept over my head.

I'll start with a short introduction about how cyclamenomania hit me. Once my mother and I were in a flower shop, buying bark for our orchid, and I was struck by the beauty of the flowers on the counter. I asked the seller what kind of incredible beauty this plant of all kinds of colors and shades is. This is how my first acquaintance with cyclamens took place. I was also surprised why I had never come across them before. The fact is that in the warm months of the year you will not find these flowers in stores, since in the summer the cyclamen has a dormant period. The plant sheds its leaves and goes into hibernation. And only closer to the cold months of autumn, it awakens and grows foliage and buds.

Cyclamen, or Dryakva, or Alpine violet Latin name - Cyclamen.

A genus of plants from the Mirsinovy ​​family (Myrsinaceae), sometimes referred to the family Primroses (Primulaceae) and includes about 20 species.

Species of the genus Cyclamen are perennial herbaceous plants that are common in the Mediterranean from Spain in the west to Iran in the east, as well as in Northeast Africa, including Somalia.

Basal dark green leathery heart-shaped leaves are located on petioles up to 30 cm long and have a decorative grayish-silvery pattern.

The color palette is very wide: hybrids with snow-white flowers have been bred, the whole gamut of pink shades to dark red, burgundy, purple.

Flowering lasts quite a long time, up to 3.5 months. Depending on the variety and room conditions, flowering can begin from the second half of October and last until the end of March.

So, after reading on the forum that often a plant bought in a store can suddenly die from a change in conditions of detention, I decided to grow a flower myself. Yes, yes, I'm not looking for easy ways! Moreover, growing something from seeds is a hell of a lot of fun for me.

Today I am ready to share my experience with you.

So, what we need to grow cyclamen at home:

  • capacity, preferably not very deep (I used a plastic sour cream jar)
  • necessarily drainage to the bottom of the container for germination (in my case, very small expanded clay the size of peas)
  • soil (it is best to take light peat soil with an admixture of sand)
  • dark film (cyclamen seeds germinate in complete darkness)
  • of course the seeds.

Let's dwell a little on seeds. I, being not a very picky person in terms of choosing seeds, went to the very first flower shop and bought my first envelope with seeds from Aelita (later you will understand why I emphasize the word FIRST)))). I remember now "cyclamen marble mix of colors". The quality of the seeds is very important. Store seeds can let you down, so if you can, it's best to buy seeds from your hands. For example, on numerous forums you can buy seeds of a wide variety of varieties, shapes and shades. But then I still did not know all the intricacies of the craft. Therefore, I will tell you about the seeds from Aelita.

There were 9 seeds in the bag. I decided to split the seeds into 2 lots. The first batch (4 seeds) was planted on the 20th of November. By the way, it is best to sow cyclamens in the cold season. Otherwise, due to the heat, the seeds will fall asleep and will not sprout.

I pre-soak the seeds overnight in plain water. Some people add various stimulants to the water. I do not do this, and without various additives they sprout normally. Some don't bother with soaking at all.

So, we take our container and make a lot of holes in the bottom with a nail so that the water does not stagnate. We pour drainage on the bottom. We plant the seeds in a light peat substrate to a depth of about 5 mm. If you plant a seed close to the surface, it can sprout with a seed coat on its head, even in our environment of cyclamen growers it is called a "helmet". Sometimes the plant itself cannot cope with the shell, so you have to help it, often such manipulations end in the fact that when trying to remove the helmet the seedling's head was torn off. This can lead to the death of the plant. But if the seedling has a good healthy nodule, it can grow another leaf. So it's 50/50. You should not bury the seed deeply either, otherwise it will be difficult for the seedling to break through to the surface and the plant may rot. After planting, water the soil well and wrap it in a dark bag. Optimal conditions for seed germination: temperature of about 18 ° C, air humidity close to 100%, and complete darkness, since light inhibits the emergence of seedlings at the initial stage. We periodically look into the package. We check our plantings for germination and make sure that the earth does not dry out.

About a month later, I had three long-awaited sprouts. You have no idea what happiness it was. I have 3 seeds out of 4 from the first batch and 0 out of 5 from the second. Why dont know.

In the first months of life, you need to monitor:

  • temperature (cyclamens can disappear if the room is hot),
  • lighting (it is better to put the plants under the lamp),
  • soil moisture (if the plant is periodically flooded, the still immature cyclamen can rot quickly enough, if watering is insufficient, the roots will dry out and the plant will die).

This is how my kids grew and developed:

Here they are a little over a month old. We moved to individual cups:

They were kept at this time in an impromptu greenhouse, which I made out of a cake box so that the moisture does not evaporate quickly and the seedlings do not dry out.

Here in this photo, you can see a piece of my "kindergarten". During this period, I was finally overwhelmed by cyclamenomania. I ordered seeds on various forums, chased after rare varieties and shades, in general, I got excited. At the moment, I have more than fifty plants of all kinds.

About five months after planting, the cyclamen began to form buds.

And so, a few days ago, the cyclamen finally blossomed. Until recently, I did not know what shade the flower would be, since the seeds are from a mixture.

In the future, I plan to update my review. as soon as something else blooms (hopefully it will).

If you have any questions about sowing or leaving, you can ask questions in the comments.

To everyone who decided to grow these beautiful flowers, I want to wish you patience (this is not easy work, but exciting), as well as excellent seedlings, strong seedlings and early flowering.


Cyclamen transplant - gardening

Family of primroses. Homeland Iran and the Eastern Mediterranean.Of the existing species on sale, you can find Persian cyclamen, rarely European, Kos, Neapolitan cyclamen and some others. Very often you can hear about cyclamen that it is a very capricious plant, that it is prone to terrible diseases and it is better not to mess with it. In fact, cyclamen can be called a demanding plant, of the special pests, only the cyclamen mite and thrips can be noted, but with proper care, these beautiful plants will delight you with their flowers all autumn and winter, and proper hygiene will help not pick up any pests. Cyclamen can simply be attributed to plants in need of care and attention.

First of all, I would like to say that the most common Persian cyclamen is sold in stores in late autumn. When buying, choose the plant that has more buds that have not yet blossomed (there are up to 30 buds per plant). Check that the leaves of your choice are intact, juicy, rich in color and low set. The tuber should only be half-buried in the ground. it depends on how the plant will develop further.

Temperature: One of the prerequisites for the well-being of cyclamen is a cool temperature - about 12-15 ° С, but not lower than 10 ° С and not higher than 20 ° С.

Lighting: The place for the cyclamen should be very bright, preferably bright diffused light. Avoid bright direct sun, i.e. shade the plant.

Watering: During the growing season, regular watering is necessary, preferably by immersion, when watering from above, care must be taken that water does not fall on the tuber and leaves, and water is poured to the edge of the pot.

Air humidity: Since the cyclamen loves humid air, the pot is placed on a tray with pebbles or wet peat. It is impossible to spray cyclamen, you can only humidify the air around the plant from a very fine spray bottle.

Leaving after flowering Persian cyclamen: After the cyclamen has faded, the flowers are cut to the very tuber, watering is reduced and feeding is stopped. The yellowed leaves are not cut off, but twisted together with the petioles. By spring, all the remaining leaves will dry out completely - the plant goes into a state of dormancy. Watering is stopped altogether. The pot is placed on its side and placed in a cool place and not watered until mid-summer. From mid-summer, the pot is placed in a shaded place in the fresh air, the earth is periodically moistened so that it is moderately moist. The appearance of the first leaves is a sign that it is time to transplant the plant. For other species, it is enough just to unscrew the dried leaves and stop feeding.

Transfer: When replanting, replace the old soil completely. The soil for the Persian cyclamen should consist of 1 part leaf, 1 part humus, 1 part turf and 1 part sand. When transplanting, the root system is checked; all diseased or decayed roots must be removed. The cyclamen pot should not be very large, the best size is 12-14 cm in diameter. In a pot that is too small, the cyclamen will bloom prematurely and the flowering will be weak.

For the rest of the species, it is advisable to add ash or dolomite to the soil for a neutral reaction, while the soil for the Neapolitan and European cyclamens should be nutritious, and poor for the Kos. When transplanting, the tubers of Persian cyclamens are not buried, leaving about a third of the tuber on top, the rest can be buried, but the Neapolitan one must be buried.

After transplanting, the cyclamen is placed in a bright place, shaded from direct sunlight, watering for the first two weeks after transplanting should be moderate until the plant gets stronger and new leaves germinate.

Reproduction: By dividing the tuber and seeds. Seeds of Persian, European, Neapolitan cyclamens are sown in late summer at a temperature of 15-20 ° C. Most varieties of Persian cyclamen bloom in 15-18 months, miniature forms in 6-8 months.

The seeds of the Kosky cyclamen are sown in winter, in January-February. European cyclamen can be propagated by dividing the tuber in February.

Growing cyclamen from seeds is easier if you have an indoor greenhouse (you can buy it at any gardening center or flower shop). By the way, cyclamens grown from seeds are more adapted to indoor conditions than specimens grown in Dutch greenhouses.

Storing tomato crops
In the open field, tomatoes are grown everywhere. To lengthen the season of consumption, they are grown in greenhouses (with and without heating), greenhouses, under a film and even in room conditions. Tomatoes are red and yellow, round and plum, early, medium and late ripening. Tomatoes are used both fresh and processed. Sauces, juices, tomato puree, tomato paste, seasonings for borscht, soups and other dishes are prepared from tomatoes, they are canned, pickled, fried, stuffed. It is best to collect brown or slightly brown tomatoes, they are ex.

Garden lighting
Spot lighting is used mainly to illuminate individual elements of the garden area, flood lighting is used to illuminate large areas. Depending on the field of application, lamps are distinguished for accent lighting, for facades, gazebos, paths, reservoirs and for illuminating the area located near the house. The luminaires can be powered by both electricity and solar energy. The latter have a low power, so the glow is dim. They are used most often to designate areas of the site, highlight garden paths, reservoirs, etc. It should be pom.

The healing properties of cranberries
This unique berry helps to normalize metabolism, stimulates the function of the pancreas, is effective for colds, periodontal disease, and also has an amazing property to soothe naughty nerves.

Not so long ago, scientists proved that cranberries contain a large amount of antioxidants - substances that can extinguish the harmful effects of free radicals in the body. mo.

Terms of protective measures against pests
Blossoming of flower buds begins with an increase in air temperature to 9-10 ° C. During this period, many pests (apple blossom beetle, larvae of apple sucker and aphids) accumulate on the green tips of the buds and begin active nutrition. The caterpillars of the apple moth emerge from under the shields. Caterpillars of leaf rollers leave winter cocoons. The maturation of the apple scab ascospores comes to an end. Conidial sporulation of fruit rot occurs. This is an important period for the fight against diseases, copperheads, aphids, apple blossom beetle. Further, before the flowering of the garden, spilled.

Garden waste shredders
Shovels and rakes are being replaced by new advanced electrical devices and machines. Garden shredders are in great demand by many gardeners and gardeners who use them to process garden waste and convert it into mulch suitable for fertilization. Also garden shredders are called chippers or shredders. If you are going to clean your house, yard, iron garage doors or gates from annoying weeds, a garden shredder will help you most quickly turn grass, leaves, branches into useful mulch, which after transfer.

Dogwood
For a long time, our ancestors, who called the dogwood only the almighty doctor, used them to treat all kinds of ailments.

Berries are effective for anemia, inflammatory diseases of the liver and kidneys. They are advised to be included in the diet for skin diseases, eczema, to restore metabolism, and also as a means of preventing the development of sclero.

Hernia is smooth
The medicinal raw material is hernia herb (stems, leaves, flowers), which is harvested during flowering and fruiting, that is, almost throughout the summer. Dried raw materials are stored in a closed glass or wooden container in a dry, cool place, no more than two years. The herbal is taken separately or in mixtures with other plants. Hernia infusion or decoction is prepared from both fresh and dried herbs. To prepare a healing broth, a tablespoon of chopped herbs is poured into 0.5 liters of boiling water, boiled for 5 minutes, insisted for about.

Garden hawthorn varieties
The fruits of cultivated hawthorn of large-fruited species and forms are consumed fresh and processed. They are suitable for jam, jam, jelly, marshmallows, compotes. The hawthorn makes a delicious filling for pies. The powdered fruits are added to the baking dough, the whole fried ones are added to make a kind of tea drink. Hawthorn is also used as a medicinal plant. For these purposes, flowers are harvested at the beginning of flowering, certainly in dry weather. Dried by spreading out in a thin layer. The fruits are harvested completely ripe. Dry in the oven.

Which greenhouse to choose
Nowadays, you can not only build a greenhouse with your own hands from scrap materials, but also buy a ready-made one in specialized stores. In either case, it will be useful for gardeners to learn a few rules that will help you choose a model that is suitable for the conditions of their garden plots. Decide what you need a greenhouse for: to obtain bountiful crops of nightshade and pumpkin, or to grow seedlings, early greens and radishes. In the latter case, for example, you can get by with a small greenhouse. Decide what varieties you are going to grow.

Shade-loving plants
There are many plants that grow better in the shade than in the sun. With the right care and nutrition, you can successfully grow these plants from seeds and fill your garden with them.

The zinc contained in them is especially necessary for the male body for the prevention and treatment of prostatitis. To do this, you need to eat at least 20 pumpkin seeds daily for two months.

What should be a greenhouse
Now professionals and amateur gardeners have developed many "smart" and at the same time simple devices to maintain the required microclimate in greenhouses. Airing machines - hydraulic, electrical, bimetallic. Drip irrigation with precise dosing and non-clogging hoses made of a special material that is not afraid of direct sunlight. And about the material for covering greenhouses, you can talk indefinitely. Let's take a greenhouse film. Previously, there was no variety on the market. And now it is stabilized.


Home Cyclamen Care

How to care for cyclamen at home.

Cyclamen is a flower that requires bright, diffused light and cool (6-12 ºC) temperatures. In addition, you will often have to ventilate the room, but in no case make drafts in it - this is unacceptable for cyclamen. Frequent spraying will increase the humidity in the room, which is very popular with cyclamen, in addition, it can reduce the temperature by a couple of degrees in the summer heat. The plant needs to be fed with complex fertilizer for flowering plants, but be careful with the consistency - this is a plant it is better to underfeed than overfeed.

How to water cyclamen.

During the period of active growth, cyclamen requires regular watering, but try to do without fanaticism in this matter: watering should be sufficient, but not excessive.

To make sure that the plant has enough moisture, use the bottom watering method - put the cyclamen pot in a container of water and keep in it until the top layer of soil gets wet, then remove the pot from the water and let the excess drain off. ... This method, by the way, will not allow moisture to get to the top of the tuber, where the growing point is located, thereby minimizing the risk of plant decay.

Reproduction of cyclamen.

Cyclamens reproduce by the seed method, which we described in detail in the previous section, and by vegetative division of the tuber. But you can divide only those corms that have more than one growth point, and this happens very rarely. In addition, the process of dividing and rooting a part of a tuber for an amateur often ends in failure, so we can assume that the seed method of reproduction of cyclamen is the only possible one.

Cyclamen after purchase.

How to care for cyclamen immediately after purchase? Sometimes the day after you bring the purchased cyclamen home, it drops flowers and even leaves. Don't panic - this is a completely natural behavior for cyclamen. He needs to get used to your environment, and you try to create the conditions in which he will be comfortable. The cyclamen flower should occupy the brightest and coolest place at home.

Check the substrate, and if it is dry, give the plant a drink using bottom watering or watering in a pan - in these cases, the plant will receive exactly as much moisture as it needs. Be sure to spray the plant. Do not feed the cyclamen for two to three months after purchase - the plants on sale are well and for a long time filled with fertilizers.

Blooming cyclamen.

Cyclamen blooms either in summer or winter, and the time, that is, the duration of the flowering of the plant, directly depends on how you follow the rules for caring for the cyclamen. Recall that the optimal conditions under which the cyclamen will bloom for a long time and abundantly are as follows: a lot of light, but without direct sunlight, the optimal temperature for flowering is not lower than 10 ºC and not higher than 20 ºC. Watering either the bottom one or into the pan so that moisture does not get to either the growing point or the leaves with flowers. Prune faded flowers.


Reproduction of cyclamen - how to properly grow a lush bush

If you decide to grow a beautiful plant on your own, then know that reproduction occurs in only two ways. It:

  • tuber division
  • seeds.

Even experienced flower growers prefer the second method, since only a tuber with two growth points can be divided (and this happens very rarely). Therefore, we will not be smart either, but try to propagate cyclamen traditionally - by seeds.

Be sure to soak the planting material for a day in a pink potassium permanganate solution. Now you can start sowing. I almost forgot to tell you what kind of soil cyclamen prefers. You can buy ready-made substrate in a specialized store, but if not possible, mix:

  • 4 handfuls of ordinary leafy soil (I advise you to pre-pour boiling water or steam over boiling water)
  • 2 handfuls of turf soil
  • 1 handful of peat chips
  • 1 handful of pure river sand.

Sow as follows - make a deep (up to 1 cm) groove, pour water into it and wait for complete absorption. Place the seeds evenly, at a short distance, sprinkle them with a thin layer of soil. The final stage is the construction of a simple greenhouse. Easier to say - wrap the container with a piece of polyethylene and heat.

Here, get ready for a long wait - often tiny sprouts begin to hatch only after two months. I had a case when I waited for seedlings for almost six months! Can you imagine how tired I am of regularly watering and airing? I was already ready to give up, but I got a very beautiful variety, I wanted to grow it, I had to clench my teeth and continue to suffer.

When the sprouts completely appear from the ground, remove the cover and send them to a light windowsill. You can dive into separate small cups only when several beautiful leaves appear. Transplanting into large pots is possible only after six months, but if the seedlings are rather small, then I advise you to be patient.

It is necessary to plant the grown cyclamen in a pot carefully. Make sure that the tuber is slightly protruding from the substrate. Flowering will also have to wait quite a long time, most often it begins only one and a half to two years after sowing the seeds. Do not be discouraged when you see the beauty grown with your own hands, you will immediately forget about the time you had to spend on it.

I think I've told you enough to get you started growing this stunning beauty on your own. It will help you a little in this video, I advise you to watch it carefully. If you want to surprise your friends, share today's blog post on social media. I will give you the last piece of advice for today - subscribe to the news, it will help you always know what surprises await on the pages. Allow me to say goodbye to you today, but do not be upset, this is not for long. See you soon!
