Petunia is an incredibly beautiful plant that usually blooms very richly. However, some gardeners have repeatedly faced such a problem as the "reluctance" of this representative of the flora bloom.
The reasons for the lack of flowers in petunia can be several.
Problems with the flowering of petunias are observed inMainly from pottery representatives, that is, those grown at home or on the balcony. If you look at those plants that grow in the open ground, then almost all of them are abundant and beautiful blossom. Flowers in pots have a color only in those cases, if the containers into which they are planted are wide and deep.
It is worth remembering that petunias are well-behavedOnly in a large amount of land, so if you want to see on your balcony lushly flowering plants, then plant one cuttings in a container of at least five liters.
If petunias are already planted in small pots, andThe number of buds is very small, then there is a way out. First of all, wait until the plant blooms. Further, when the number of flowers is more than the buds, trim their stems by a third, remove the flower from the pot and cut the roots halfway. Take the pot twice as large as the previous one and plant the petunia in fresh ground. Put the pot in a shaded place for a week, pre-feeding the plant (you can use for the feeding, for example, "Monophosphate" or "Aquarine"), and after a while move to sunny.
Quite strongly on growth and the formation of new buds affect the care of petunia. To the plant to blossom long and abundantly, it is necessary to regularly perform the following hygiene procedures:
- if the flower is stretched and has few lateral stems, then you need to pinch the tip of the longest shoots-
- it is necessary to remove wilting flowers every day, and together with the peduncles (if this is not done, the plant will give all its strength to the tying of the seed boxes)
- it is obligatory to clean the withered leaves, especially in the lower part-
- in time to water and timely feed. Petunias love copious watering and poorly tolerate a lack of moisture.
In general, these flowers are very fond of warmth and light,The optimum temperature for their cultivation is 25 degrees, but they tolerate a 30 degree heat. If petunia does not bloom, then revise exactly these conditions, if necessary, insulate the balcony and install artificial lighting.
