  • Cordyline fruticosa Lemon Lime

    Zhu Jiao, also known as Red Iron Tree, is a shrub plant in the family of Agave. It has developed meadow rhizomes in the underground part and is prone to sprouting mulberry, which is different from the dragon blood tree species.Its main stem is straight and upright, with a height of 1-3 meters, without branching or with few branches.The flowers range from light red to cyan purple, with a hint of yellow in between.Distributed in the tropical regions of southern China.More than garden cultivation, it is a foliage plant.Zhu Jiao has a beautiful plant shape, gorgeous and elegant colors, and has good ornamental value.Zhu Jiao prefers a high temperature and humid climate, and is a semi shaded plant. It cannot tolerate the scorching sun in northern regions, and its leaves are prone to yellowing in completely shaded areas. It is not cold resistant. Except for Guangdong, Guangxi, Fujian, and other places, it is only suitable to be potted indoors for viewing. It is required to be rich in humus and well drained acidic soil, avoid alkaline soil, and plant in alkaline soil where the leaves are prone to yellowing, new leaves lose color, and is not drought resistant.Potted red banana is commonly used in pots of 15-25 centimeters, and is planted when the seedling height is 20 centimeters.During the growth period, Zhu Jiao should be fertilized once every half month or with high nitrate potassium fertilizer from Huiyou 20-8-20 throughout the four seasons.The longer the main stem is, the higher it becomes, and the base leaves gradually wither, yellow, and fall off. Shortening can promote the emergence of more lateral branches, making the tree crown more beautiful.Leaves are often sprayed with water to maintain fresh and lush growth of stems and leaves.And pay attention to indoor ventilation to reduce the harm of diseases and pests.Change the basin every 2-3 years.The cultivation of red banana should pay attention to the following four key points:1. The suitable temperature for the growth of Zhu Jiao is 20-25 ℃, with a temperature range of 25-30 ℃ during the day in summer and 7-10 ℃ at night in winter.It cannot be lower than 4 ℃, and some varieties can withstand low temperatures of 0 ℃.It can be seen that Zhu Jiao has strong adaptability.2. Zhu Jiao is more sensitive to water.During the growth period, the soil in the pot must be kept moist.Lack of water can easily cause falling leaves, but too much water or accumulated water in the pot can also cause leaf shedding or yellowing of leaf tips.During the growth period of stems and leaves, frequent water spraying is recommended, with an air humidity of 50% to 60% being more suitable.3. Zhu Jiao has a strong adaptability to light.Bright light is most beneficial for the growth of red banana, but short-term strong light or longer half shade has little effect on the growth of red banana.Proper shading at noon in summer to reduce light intensity is extremely beneficial for the growth of banana leaves.4. It is advisable to use fertile, loose, and well drained sandy loam soil, which is not resistant to salt alkali and acidic soil.Potting plants often use a mixture of humus soil or peat soil, culture soil, and coarse sand.The foliage plant Zhu Jiao has a beautiful shape, gorgeous and elegant colors, and is suitable for indoor decoration as a potted plant.Potted young plants, embellished with red banana cabins and window sills, elegant and unique.Place the venue, public places, and entrances and exits of the hall in a dignified and tidy manner, fresh and pleasing to the eye.Several pots of display windows and tea rooms showcase elegance and luxury.There are many cultivated varieties and significant changes in leaf shape, making it a commonly used plant for decorating indoor spaces.

  • Aglaonema Guanyu Red

    1. Choose suitable potting soil: If green plants want to grow better, they must be prepared with loose, fertile, and well drained soil. Choose pots that are suitable in size and leak water. Do not use sticky soil, as strong soil is not conducive to drainage. Also, do not use a large or deep pot for small green plants, as it is difficult to control the amount of watering.If using small pots for large seedlings and green plants is not conducive to the extension of the root system, it is necessary to change the soil in the pots every other year.2. Maintain an environment with sufficient sunlight or scattered light for green plants: It is important to know whether your plants prefer shade or sunlight, keep the air in the environment unobstructed, and provide shade or supplementary light to the plants according to the temperature of the season. All plants require light for photosynthesis to promote growth and flowering, avoiding excessive shading of the environment, excessive growth of plants, or poor ventilation of plants that may suffer from pests and diseases.3. Reasonable watering: If you want green plants to grow well, you need to water and fertilize them reasonably. You cannot water and fertilize them randomly. We need to water green plants based on whether they are drought resistant or prefer humidity. Drought resistant plants should wait for the soil in the pot to completely dry before watering;Green plants that prefer moist soil should be watered in pots with dry and wet soil.Only reasonable watering is conducive to the healthier growth of green plants.4. Reasonable fertilization: Plant growth requires water and fertilizer to grow more vigorously, and the green plants at home should also be fertilized in appropriate conditions to promote lush branches and leaves. Generally, fertilization is sufficient during the growth period of the green plants, after flowering, and during winter.5. Pruning: In order for green plants to grow well, we need to learn to prune them. When they are growing vigorously, we should cut off overcrowded branches, elongated branches, weak branches, etc., which is beneficial for the green plants to breathe air, have light, and reduce the occurrence of diseases and pests. If it is a flowering green plant, it is necessary to cut off the remaining flowers and prune the remaining flower branches, diseased and insect branches, etc. in a timely manner to prevent the remaining flowers from continuing to consume nutrients. Before winter, we should cut off the old and dead branches of the plants, which is beneficial for overwintering and promoting the growth of the plants next year.

  • Aglaonema Beauty

    Red Vein Coarse Ribbed Grass, also known as Red Vein or Red Vein Queen, is a perennial evergreen herbaceous plant of the Guangdong Evergreen genus in the Araceae family.Red vein coarse rib grass is not very common, and many flower enthusiasts do not know how to cultivate it. Today, the editor will tell you how to cultivate red vein coarse rib grass.How to Cultivate Red Vein Coarse Ribbed GrassThe maintenance environment of Red Veined Coarse Ribbed Grass can be relatively warm, humid, and semi shaded. It needs shade in summer and can be kept warm in winter. Red Veined Coarse Ribbed Grass is not cold resistant and afraid of drought because of its poor cold resistance. The temperature in winter should not be lower than 15 ℃. Avoid sunlight exposure in summer and grow at a suitable temperature of 25 ℃ -30 ℃.If conditions permit, loose peat soil, peat soil, or a mixture of humus soil and sandy loam can be used for potted red ribbed grass. Although red ribbed grass is afraid of sun exposure, appropriate lighting should be provided. If left in a dark place for a long time, the leaf color will be dim, and the leaves will become soft and not firm, which will affect the ornamental effect.During the growth period of Red Veined Coarse Ribbed Grass, sufficient water is required. In the summer, water should be sprayed on the leaves in the morning and evening, and placed in a semi shaded environment.The growth of stems and leaves slows down in winter, so water should be controlled and the soil in the pot should be slightly dry.The lower leaves of adult plants are prone to withering, resulting in bare stems. The top stem can be cut for cutting, leaving the base for new sprouts to sprout.In summer, when cultivating outdoors, it is important to pay attention to shading and avoid excessive light, otherwise it is prone to sunburn.When overwintering indoors in a winter greenhouse, pay attention to natural lighting to prevent insufficient light from fading the color of the leaves. Reproduction often involves branching and cutting.

  • Dracaena Draco Sky

    Dragon blood tree is very suitable for indoor cultivation and is an excellent foliage green plant. When raising it at home, it is necessary to use loose and breathable soil for cultivation. It can be placed in a place with sufficient scattered light for maintenance, avoiding direct sunlight, and controlling the temperature between 20-28 ℃.In addition, to maintain the dragon blood tree at home, it is necessary to water it in a timely manner. Watering can be done every 10-15 days to keep the soil slightly moist.It is also necessary to fertilize it appropriately, applying it once or twice every two months.The dragon blood tree is tall, with lush leaves and a beautiful green waterfall hanging down.Keeping a pot indoors not only beautifies the home environment, but also purifies the air.Next, let's talk in detail about the cultivation methods of dragon blood trees.Firstly, it is necessary to prepare a loose and breathable planting soil for the dragon blood tree.Nutrient soil, humus soil, peat soil, vermiculite or sand can be mixed and used in a ratio of 3:4:2:1.When conditions permit, some organic fertilizers can also be added as base fertilizer, such as cake fertilizer, chicken manure fertilizer, etc.Secondly, the breeding environment should be warm and comfortable.Indoor breeding of dragon blood trees is best placed in a bright and ventilated environment with scattered light.Although dragon blood trees are also shade tolerant, prolonged exposure to shade can cause their leaves to fade and turn yellow.Therefore, whether in the living room or bedroom, indoor breeding of dragon blood trees should keep the indoor air unobstructed, and regularly receive external light or supplement the lighting, which is conducive to the photosynthesis of dragon blood trees and makes their leaves green and ornamental.Dragon blood trees prefer warm environments, and it doesn't matter if they are in their thirties or forties in summer.As long as the temperature is not lower than 15 degrees, dragon blood trees can grow.But if you are raising dragon blood trees in the north, you need to move them indoors before winter and keep the temperature above 5 degrees Celsius to safely overwinter.Thirdly, dragon blood trees prefer moist environments and do not like soil that is too dry, but it is important to prevent potted plants from accumulating water and rotting their roots.After the surface of the soil dries, it should be watered thoroughly in a timely manner.During the high temperature of summer, plants can be sprayed with water to increase air humidity.Winter is cold, moderate watering and keep the soil slightly moist is sufficient.Fourthly, dragon blood trees prefer fertilizer, but they should be applied thinly and frequently.During the plant growth period, apply nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium balanced fertilizer every 15-20 days, diluted at a ratio of 1000 times, and then irrigate the roots to supplement the nutrients needed for growth, making the leaves dark green and glossy.In northern winter, it is necessary to stop fertilizing the dragon blood tree and reduce the frequency and amount of watering to promote plant dormancy and safe overwintering.Fifth, the dragon blood tree has strong sprouting power and is resistant to pruning. It can remove lateral buds and yellow leaves from the main trunk at any time, and maintain the beauty of the plant through pruning.

  • Dracaena Super

    Dragon blood tree is native to the Canary Islands, tropical and subtropical Africa, and the archipelago between Asia and Australia.The plant shape is extremely beautiful, and the leaves are colorful and beautiful.Some varieties have dense yellow spots on their leaves, which are affectionately known as star spotted trees. Some varieties have yellow vertical stripes on their leaves, which can secrete a faint fragrance. They are called fragrant dragon blood trees. Some varieties have white, milky white, and beige stripes embedded on their leaves, which are also known as tricolor dragon blood trees.The stem of the dragon blood tree can secrete bright red resin, which is probably the nickname "dragon blood" derived from the dragon blood tree.The leaves of the Dragon Blood Tree are thick and shaped like a sword. Its vibrant colors shine brightly under sunlight or light, making it a beloved indoor foliage plant across the country.Morphology and Habits: Dragon blood tree is a perennial evergreen shrub or tree.The plant is short and sturdy, with a straight stem, and the young tree is less than 100 centimeters tall.The leaves are sword shaped and densely branched, with a bright green color when young. When formed, they turn into bright red or purple red, milky white, bronze, pink, and colorful, beautiful and spectacular.The ovary of this plant has three chambers, each chamber containing one ovule, and each fruit only bears three seeds.Dragon blood tree is native to the Atlantic Canary Islands and prefers warm, humid, and sunny environments.Cultivating a dragon tree is not difficult, as long as there is sufficient light and fresh air, it can grow vigorously.There are many varieties of dragon blood trees, although they belong to monocotyledonous plants, due to the proliferation and division of thin-walled cells in the plant, they thicken and lignify, forming tall trees with a lifespan of up to a thousand years.In recent years, dragon blood trees have been introduced to China, and now there are a small number of cultivations in various parts of the country.If dwarfed potted plants are placed in halls, living rooms, or bedrooms, they will be elegant, interesting, and full of exotic charm.Reproduction method: After the introduction of dragon blood trees to China, except for a few tropical regions where seeds are increased, other regions mainly use high-pressure and cutting methods for asexual reproduction.(1) The stem of the dragon blood tree propagated by layering mostly grows upright with few branching.After several years of plant growth, the basal leaves fall off, naturally losing their ornamental value.According to this situation, breeders can engage in high-pressure breeding during the hot and humid season from May to July.The method is to cut the appropriate part of the plant stem in a circular shape, with a width of 1.8-2.2 centimeters and a depth to the xylem. Use a small knife to peel off the outer layer of the ring, wipe off the excess liquid from the cut with a clean and damp cloth, apply 5000-1000ppm of naphthalene acetic acid aqueous solution to the upper layer of the cut, and then tie a white plastic film to the lower end of the cut. Smooth it into a funnel shape, and put the rooting stem material mixed with moss and mountain soil on it. Wrap the cutting edge, irrigate once, tighten the upper end of the river membrane, and then place the plant outdoors for cultivation to strengthen fertilizer and water management.After the high pressure of the dragon blood tree, it is necessary to check whether the substrate is dry at any time and replenish water at any time.After 30 to 40 days of cultivation, new roots appear at the cutting site. From September to October, they can be cut off from the mother plant and cultivated separately to become an independent plant.(2) Cutting propagation can also be used for asexual propagation of dragon blood trees, with a duration of May to June.At this time, it is the vigorous growth period of the dragon blood tree, and the plant is rich in nutrients, making it very easy to survive after cutting.Before cutting, it is recommended to select mother plants with higher ornamental value and take robust branches that have grown for more than two years, each segment about 10-20 centimeters long, with or without leaves.Cut the base of the cuttings into a flat opening, cut the upper part horizontally and retain the leaves. Soak the upper and lower incisions in clean water to clean the spilled juice, and place them in a cool and ventilated place for a period of time. Then soak the 2-3 cm base of the cuttings in 500-1000ppm of naphthoic acid, usually for 5 seconds, and insert them as needed.Dragon blood tree cuttings can be carried out in small earthenware pots on the seedbed, and the substrate can be vermiculite, perlite, or high-temperature disinfected plain sand. After being potted, the cuttings can be carried out.Each potted plant should be watered thoroughly after planting, and the seedbed should be placed in a well lit area for careful maintenance.The future management work will mainly focus on keeping the substrate moist.Dragon blood tree wounds heal quickly, take root early, and sprout quickly. Generally, within 15 to 20 days, the incision produces callus tissue under the action of trauma hormones. Within 25 to 35 days, the original root body of the cuttings can quickly appear under the action of endogenous hormones, and new roots can sprout within 35 to 40 days. After two months, the cuttings can be transplanted in pots using cultivation soil.Cultivation management: Dragon blood trees prefer warmth and fear severe cold, prefer light but fear scorching sun exposure, and are most suitable for growing in warm but not extremely hot environments.The three seasons of spring, summer, and autumn are the peak seasons for the growth of dragon blood trees. During this period, growers must fully meet their needs for water, nutrients, temperature, and nutrients to ensure their healthy growth.(1) Dragon blood tree prefers a fertile and permeable substrate with vegetables and pine, and can be cultivated and managed using soilless cultivation methods.The container for cultivation should be a beautiful and elegant Yixing purple clay pot, or a high-quality ceramic pot made of porcelain from Jingdezhen City, Jiangxi Province.The matrix can be fully mixed with vermiculite, perlite, and peat soil.This matrix has good permeability, is clean, sterile, and odorless.Dragon blood tree and this substrate can be cultivated in advanced containers for several years without flipping the pot or changing the soil, with well-developed plant roots and robust growth.The management of fertilizer and water in soilless cultivation mainly involves the application of nutrient solution.If the cultivation quantity is small, it is not necessary to prepare a specialized nutrient solution, and instead use the "Red Plum" and "Golden Moon" brand nutrient solutions sold on the market.According to the instructions for use, add appropriate water, mix thoroughly, and then irrigate. Alternatively, every 30 to 40 days, the surface substrate can be scraped open and granular slow-release fertilizer can be applied.Water every 3 to 5 days to keep the substrate moist.In summer, most areas are hot and dry. After 10am and 6pm every day, a fine hole spray can be used to spray mist onto the leaf surface to protect the beautiful and bright color of the leaves.During the winter dormancy period, fertilization should be stopped and watering should be controlled. Generally, it should be placed indoors for overwintering. Watering can be done every ten days and a half months to keep the soil slightly dry and moist, ensuring safe overwintering.(2) Dragon blood trees enjoy warm, humid, and sunny environments, as well as being able to withstand shade.However, if grown indoors and placed in excessively shaded environments for a long time, it can also cause leaf discoloration.So it's best to place the flowerpot on the southeast window sill to fully receive sunlight.If the fat dragon blood tree is placed on the balcony for cultivation, when the summer sunlight is too strong, the flower pot should be moved indoors, especially at noon, and appropriate shade should be provided. Generally, a light intensity of 40-50% is sufficient to avoid scorching the leaves by the scorching sun.Dragon blood trees prefer warmth but cannot tolerate severe cold.The most suitable temperature for its growth is 20-28 degrees Celsius. If the summer temperature is high, exceeding 32 degrees Celsius, or the winter temperature is below 15 degrees Celsius, the dragon blood tree will be in a dormant or semi dormant state.In the Yangtze River Basin and its southern regions, after late October, dragon blood trees will be gradually moved indoors to prevent early frost damage.Throughout the winter, it is best to control the room temperature between 10-20 degrees Celsius and not too low.At the same time, the potted flowers should be placed in the south facing windowsill to allow direct sunlight to shine on the plant, and the orientation should be rotated regularly to ensure even light exposure.If there is no sunlight for a long time, you can turn on the lights at night and place the dragon blood tree under a 40 watt light for artificial lighting to ensure the beauty of the leaves.At night, the dragon blood tree should be placed inside curtains and thick curtains should be used to block cold air, or flower pots should be placed in warm corners of the house to ensure safe wintering.Pest control: Due to the dry environment, long-term cultivation of dragon blood trees on balconies or indoor windowsills can easily lead to the growth of red spider mites.The red spider, commonly known as the fire dragon, belongs to the mite pest group and is mostly clustered on the back of plant leaves. It forms a net to cover itself and sucks juice.Dragon blood tree is harmed by it, causing its leaves to fade and chlorophyll to be damaged. The surface appears with dense small yellow spots and spots, gradually shrinking, yellowing, withering, and in severe cases falling off, losing its proper ornamental value.Prevention and control methods.Red spiders often hide on the back of branches, leaves, or in dense areas, using nets to conceal themselves, making it easier to catch them manually.If chemical agents are used for treatment, 20% triclosan emulsion can be added with 800-1000 times water to make a solution for spraying. This medicine has good killing effects on adults, nymphs, and eggs.50% dichlorvos emulsion can also be added to 1000-1500 times water to make a solution for spraying. When spraying, be sure to spray it on the back of the leaves as well, so that the killing effect is better.

    1. Choose suitable potting soil: If green plants want to grow better, they must be prepared with loose, fertile, and well drained soil. Choose pots that are suitable in size and leak water. Do not use sticky soil, as strong soil is not conducive to drainage. Also, do not use a large or deep pot for small green plants, as it is difficult to control the amount of watering.If using small pots for large seedlings and green plants is not conducive to the extension of the root system, it is necessary to change the soil in the pots every other year.2. Maintain an environment with sufficient sunlight or scattered light for green plants: It is important to know whether your plants prefer shade or sunlight, keep the air in the environment unobstructed, and provide shade or supplementary light to the plants according to the temperature of the season. All plants require light for photosynthesis to promote growth and flowering, avoiding excessive shading of the environment, excessive growth of plants, or poor ventilation of plants that may suffer from pests and diseases.3. Reasonable watering: If you want green plants to grow well, you need to water and fertilize them reasonably. You cannot water and fertilize them randomly. We need to water green plants based on whether they are drought resistant or prefer humidity. Drought resistant plants should wait for the soil in the pot to completely dry before watering;Green plants that prefer moist soil should be watered in pots with dry and wet soil.Only reasonable watering is conducive to the healthier growth of green plants.4. Reasonable fertilization: Plant growth requires water and fertilizer to grow more vigorously, and the green plants at home should also be fertilized in appropriate conditions to promote lush branches and leaves. Generally, fertilization is sufficient during the growth period of the green plants, after flowering, and during winter.5. Pruning: In order for green plants to grow well, we need to learn to prune them. When they are growing vigorously, we should cut off overcrowded branches, elongated branches, weak branches, etc., which is beneficial for the green plants to breathe air, have light, and reduce the occurrence of diseases and pests. If it is a flowering green plant, it is necessary to cut off the remaining flowers and prune the remaining flower branches, diseased and insect branches, etc. in a timely manner to prevent the remaining flowers from continuing to consume nutrients. Before winter, we should cut off the old and dead branches of the plants, which is beneficial for overwintering and promoting the growth of the plants next year.
