     Propagation mode

    Sowing and grafting are commonly used for propagation.

    Sowing: often used in the spring indoor pot sowing, sowing 3~5 days after germination, seedlings can bloom 3~4 years later.

    Grafting: in May ~ June, commonly used flowers into the ball or measuring day as rootstock, scion with seeding seedlings, after the second year can blossom.[1]

    Cultivation techniques

    Star is like water, pure plant material gap is too big, big grain dry too fast, capillary root cannot attach, affected the water absorption of nutrients, causing capillary root repeat hair root, die, the roots and the situation of the water to add some small particles embedded material and peat can greatly improve the growth of capillary root absorption environment, so as to raise the lush root ~

    Although star pocket likes water, it does not mean that water can be accumulated. When star pocket is maintained in summer, when the light is strong, it should be properly shaded, otherwise it is easy to get sunburned, and it is necessary to avoid splashing soil when watering.

    The star pocket should be watered frequently during the growing season.Adult plants can be changed once every 5 to 6 years.
