Method of Lantern Flower Breeding

Breeding method

Temperature and light

The growing temperature of the lantern flower is about 15-25 ° C. Avoid high temperature in summer. When the temperature exceeds 30 ° C, the plant will enter a semi -dormant state; the room temperature in winter is best to keep above 10 ° C, and the temperature must not be lower than 5 ° C, otherwise it is prone to freezing damage.

Lantern flowers like the environment with sufficient sunlight. If the sun is insufficient, it is easy to cause the plant to grow, and the number of flowers will be greatly reduced. However, in the summer, appropriate shading is needed to move the lantern flower plants in a cool place to avoid long -term direct exposure to the sun and avoid causing scrolls of the leaves.


In the growing period, the principle of “seeing dry and wet” should be kept in the growth period. During the flowering of lantern flowers, avoid dried or dampness during the flowering of lantern flowers, otherwise it will easily cause falling buds, falling flowers or fallen leaves. In the case of half dormant in summer and winter, watering needs to be controlled to prevent leaf and rotten roots.


The lantern flowers are fertilized, and organic fertilizer is applied before planting. Because the lantern flower grows fast and can be continuously blossomed one after another, the growth period should be applied every 7-10 days to apply cake fertilizer water or thin liquid fertilizer. Potassium fertilizer is preferably.


The cultivation substrate is suitable for fertile, loose breathable, and good drainage sandy loam.

In the spring, you can carry out pots and soil, pour out some pot soil, cut off the old root properly, and choose the appropriate flower pot. Spring and autumn should also be properly loosening.
