Balsam has been the favorite indoor plant of many generations of people. Its cuttings are easily rooted, and with good care, the plant can bloom almost the whole year. The ability to year-round flowering reflects the English everyday name of the flower - "Lizzy troublesome." In culture, there are three main groups of balsam. Until recently, only traditional species were grown, with spreading juicy stems and flowers of white, red or pink color among green leaves. In recent years, breeders and lovers of rare plants have bred hundreds of new varieties. Such a new group are first-generation hybrids (F1), low compact plants with a mass of flowers, due to which leaves are almost invisible. Orange, and purple were added to the standard, white, pink, and red color of the flowers. The third group consists of New Guinean hybrids, which, as a rule, have variegated leaves. Balsam is not difficult to grow, but it requires attention. Pinch the ends of the stems on young plants regularly to enhance branching; adult plants are pruned annually in spring. In traditional forms, the stems are fragile and may need support. Regularly feed during the growth period, ventilate the room in hot weather. And above all - do not forget to water more often in the summer.
Secrets to Flower Care Success
- Temperature:Moderate, in winter at least 12 ° C. In order for the plant to bloom in winter, the temperature must be at least 15 ° C.
- Lighting:It is photophilous, however in summer it should be shaded from direct sunlight. Blooming in winter requires several hours of direct sunlight per day.
- Watering:Abundant, the soil should always remain moist; in the summer, daily watering may be necessary. In winter, watering is reduced.
- Air humidity:From time to time, the leaves should be sprayed, avoiding water falling on the open flowers.
- Transfer:It blooms well only if the roots fill the pot. If necessary, transplanted in the spring.
- Reproduction:Stem cuttings at any time of the year or seeds in the spring.
Particular difficulties in caring for the plant
- Leaf fall
Reason: Usually the leaves fall off after prolonged cooling. Other causes may include irregular watering and severe pest damage.
- Leaf wilt
Reason: Inadequate watering. Leaves may wilt in the summer a day after watering.Frequent watering is the only way to combat this trouble, but you do not need to keep the plant in a saucer with water all the time.
- Weak flowering
Reason: There can be several reasons. The most probable are lack of light, lack of nutrition, excess nutrition, too low temperature or premature transplantation.
In warm, dry weather, it can be affected by a spider mite, while the leaves bronze and become spotty. Aphids and whiteflies, which spoil the appearance and weaken the plant, are also dangerous.
- Elongated stems
Reason: This phenomenon is caused by too high a temperature combined with a lack of light, although in some traditional varieties, even under favorable conditions, the stems begin to bare fairly quickly. Root the cuttings of a modern compact hybrid, and discard the old plant.
- Flowering did not come
Reason: A common reason why an adult plant does not bloom is a transplant. Balsam should sit in a cramped pot.
- Root decay
Reason: Waterlogging, especially at low temperatures and in insufficient lighting. In winter, always reduce watering, water very carefully. if the temperature does not exceed 15 ° C.
- Flower fall
Reason: A common cause is a lack of light. Other causes may include dry air, drying out of the soil, or damage by a spider mite.
In Victorian times, banana occupied the most honorable place in home greenhouses, but only in our days interest in this plant is reviving again. There are few plants whose leaves would give a collection of indoor plants such an unmistakably tropical look. A banana grows better in a greenhouse than in a living room, but even when grown under glass, you should carefully choose the type of plant. At room conditions, bananas are grown as ornamental plants rather than for fruit.
The Begoniaceae family is very diverse and has several thousand flower shapes. Among this variety there are plants with various shapes, structure and height. Some can easily fit in a disposable cup, but there are also indoor flowers that can occupy the entire wall in your home. Many begonias have been selected or specially bred as houseplants, and there is a special classification for ordering this diversity. First of all, all begonias have common symptoms. The main ones include: the presence of unisexual (female and male) flowers, usually a group arrangement of flowers, as a rule, fleshy stems and asymmetric leaves. Three groups of begonias are distinguished depending on the nature of the underground part of the plant. In leaf begonias, a thickened rhizome is usually used for propagation - the plants of this group are famous for beautiful leaves, this includes B. royal. Tuberous begonias use tubers for propagation, plants of this group bloom beautifully. Finally, bushy begonias belong to the third group, in which rhizomes are usually not used for propagation; this group includes the well-known B. ever flowering, or waxy.
Easy to grow shrub with yellow-pink inflorescences in the shape of a shrimp at the ends of arcuate drooping stems. Flowers appear almost all year round, and the plant needs only warm days, cool nights and a sunny windowsill. To form a thick bush, the first few flowers are removed from a young plant. Every year in spring, the stems are cut to half height.
Snow-white boemeria or ramie, comes from the subtropics of Asia, where it has long been valued for its durable fiber. Ropes and coarse fabrics (burlap) are made from ramie. Snow-white boemeria was introduced into European greenhouses as an example of technical culture. The general public liked it for its unusual appearance, combining the features of a giant herbaceous plant and tree at the same time. Leaves reach 15-20 cm, heart-shaped. The wrinkled pattern of veins (especially in young, not yet fully formed leaves) and a light reddish shade make the ramie even more attractive.
Snow-white bemeria blooms inconspicuously: hchinaceous (up to 40-50 cm) inflorescences hanging down from the leaf sinuses grow. At the beginning of flowering, they really have a whiteness of snow, but quickly turn brown and dry out, staying on the plant for a long time. Inflorescences are more like lichens hanging from branches than flowers.
An even greater decorative effect can be achieved by growing silver boemeria. She has bluish-green foliage with silver edges and spots.
Bemeria does not feel well even in a light shade: at the same time its chic leaves fall, the stems become weak and easily droop. He does not like boemeria and drafts, especially in winter. A native of the tropics, boemeria is growing actively year round. If the plant lacks mineral nutrition, the edges of the leaves turn black and dry out. Another improper care syndrome is holes in the leaves. They occur if boemeria is left without watering for a long time.
When watering, allow the soil to dry only from the surface. To humidity, boemeria, fortunately, is not demanding, it does not need to be sprayed. The vertically located leaf blades practically do not accumulate dust, which makes even washing the leaves unnecessary.
Of the pests, spider mites and aphids attack boemeria. If it is difficult for you to treat the whole plant with chemicals, you can radically cut the boemeria. Cut off all affected shoots along with the pests and throw them away.
The family of spindle tree
In culture, there are several variegated forms of which are shown here. These bushy plants have ovoid, leathery leaves less than 2.5 cm long. Blooms with small white flowers in late spring. Euonymus is a suitable plant for a bright unheated room; in a room with central heating, it will probably drop leaves in winter. In the spring you should pinch.
The plant is rare, but it is worth looking for if you have a terrarium or need to fill out a "green window". She will not feel well in the living room, because she needs high humidity in the jungle, as at home. Sometimes it blooms with small purple flowers that do not have decorative value. Bertolonia grows like a creeping plant, does not exceed several centimeters in height.
Bilbergia is characterized by very hard, prickly leaves along the edge, which are armed with thorns. Solid leaves, collected in a not too elegant outlet, are unlikely to attract anyone. But the drooping inflorescences with pink bracts and a loose brush of flowers, dominated by dark purple tones, perfectly adorn the plants. Usually bilbergia bloom in early summer, but with good care you can expect additional flowering in April.
Bilbergia drooping is the most popular. She has grayish narrow leaves that form a too loose rosette, almost not holding water.
Pyramidal bilbergia, on the contrary, has bright green leaves and a rosette resembling a glass.
Of all the bromeliad bilbergia, the most unpretentious in care. At home, they have to withstand a fairly long cool period, and sometimes droughts or frosts occur. Therefore, in the winter months they are not afraid of a temperature of 2-5 ° C. Humidity is also not the main thing, they easily put up with central heating, but it is better to spray them all the same.
Bilbergia are very photophilous. In winter, put them on the south window, and in the summer take them out onto the balcony, but block them from direct sunlight. In the summer, it is advisable to give bilbergia weekly dressings. Bilbergia breed by dividing the bush during transplantation. Of the pests on the bilbergia, one can find a scale insect and phylloxera.
Very many plants can be called both widespread and attractive. Sea, or cucumber (as the plant is called in English), can not be attributed to either one or the other - this plant is rare and not particularly attractive. Only one species is grown - B. volubilis. From a large bulb bulging from the ground in winter, a winding stalk-peduncle grows. Before he dies in late spring, short-lived leaves and small greenish flowers will appear on it.
This plant can be found in many greenhouses and shops, but not in every directory. It is predominantly greenhouse, as indoor began to spread from the 80s. Under glass, it grows in a large bush; in a living room, it grows in a small bush with graceful branches dotted with beautifully painted leaves. He needs high humidity.
The nightshade family
Browllia is usually acquired blooming, although it is easy to grow from seeds. For summer flowering, the seed is planted in early spring, for winter - in the summer. From time to time, pinch the ends of the shoots to enhance branching. With proper care and maintenance in a cool room, flowering can last for many weeks. You should regularly feed the plant and remove faded flowers.
It blooms with fragrant flowers from mid-summer to early winter. Tubular flowers are collected in corymbose inflorescences at the ends of the stems. The main requirement for cultivation is bright lighting in the summer and coolness in the winter. The ends of the stems of a young plant are pinched for better branching; after flowering, the stems are pruned. With good care, the bush can reach 70 cm in height, but even in capable hands, it can die in a few years.
Under normal room conditions, growing bougainvillea is difficult. An adult plant in indoor conditions will bloom profusely on the windowsill all spring and autumn, and after flowering you can take a chance and try to make it bloom for the next season. In the fall, trim the ends of the stems and reduce watering. During the winter, keep the plant in a cool room, with the onset of spring, gradually increase the air temperature and increase watering.
The initial species is B. glabra, but its hybrids are more popular. The first line in the list of popular forms is B. buttiana Mrs Butt with large leaves and large, from pink to dark red, bracts.
Budra is a wonderful ampelous plant: it grows quickly, multiplies easily, is unpretentious, and in addition to everything, it has fragrant leaves up to 2.5 cm wide and blooms with pale blue flowers. She has one drawback - in Britain she is hardly sold. Like ivy, budra is one of the few indoor plants that grow wild in Europe, where it grows in open ground. This means that in winter she needs to be cool.
