Hyacinth at home: growing and grooming

The most diverse types of flowers that can be seen on our plots and windowsills have come to us from the Mediterranean. This is also hyacinth - a flower to which even the most inveterate florists can not remain indifferent. Most often hyacinth can be seen on private plots and flower gardens, but not everyone knows that hyacinth at home can also be grown. Correctly preparing the plant for planting, and giving it all that is necessary for growth, hyacinth in the future will give a luxurious inflorescence of flowers that somehow resemble a bell.

Perhaps, the most difficult is to grow hyacinth at home from the bulb. Of course, you can buy already prepared seedlings and get rid of some trouble, but all those who have purchased the bulbs, should get acquainted with what is the care of hyacinth at home.

The very first and foremost is the preparation of the land. The soil should consist of such elements as a composter, sheet earth, turf, sand and peat. It is worth paying attention to the fact that the sand does not pour into the bottom of the pot, as it usually does, but on the top layer of the soil, where the bulb itself will be planted. The pot for planting the hyacinth should be of medium size. Planting the bulb depends on when you want to get bloom. If by the New Year, then the landing should occur no later than the end of September, if in the spring, then two months later. After planting the bulb, it must be allowed to settle down. For this, the pot with hyacinth is put in a dark cool place. Watering should be moderate, excessive amounts of liquid can cause the plant to rot. While the first shoots will appear, it will take about two months. As soon as they get out, the plant is transferred to a lighted place, while the air temperature should not be above 14-150C. But when the first buds appear, the hyacinth can be safely transferred to the room. In this period of growth, you need to ensure that there are no drafts, and the plant itself does not fall direct sunlight. In principle, to grow hyacinth at home until the emergence of buds was the most difficult. It should be noted that the removal of the bulb shoots to the illuminated area is of particular importance. If you do this earlier, when the bulb has not yet given obvious signs of life, hyacinth will grow weak, and bloom may not occur at all.

But to relax on this is not worth it, hyacinth at home needs constant and continuous care. The most important thing is to provide it with good lighting and sufficient watering. Approximately 12-15 hours, hyacinth should take "light baths". If it is not possible to provide the flower with natural light, you will have to use an artificial light, directing the light from the lamps to the hyacinth. After the flowering stops, the fallen flowers should be removed, and some more time to continue watering the plant. When hyacinth gets strength, it should be transplanted. Thus, the process described above starts anew.

Do not miss and such a moment as the fertilizer of the flower. This is done from the moment the bulb starts the first shoots. For this purpose, a mixture of saltpetre and phosphate is used, and when flower buds are formed, a mixture of phosphate and potassium is taken for top dressing. Before fertilizing the soil, it should be thoroughly loosened.

Hyacinth at home, many growers love for the fact that, unlike some other floral plants, it has good immunity to pests and diseases. And yet sometimes he does not manage to avoid problems. If the leaves have black dots, and maybe large strips, and the bulb is covered with mucus, this indicates that the plant is affected by rot. Nothing remains, how to destroy the flower, and buy a new one.
