Nursing body kei, success is easy or difficult

Currently, the traditional nursery keiki, especially the purple orchid, is popularly applied by many people. This is also a cheap propagation method for clonal plants that does not require high technology, and is suitable in all regions. Many people believe that incubating kei is not difficult, but there are people who do it forever but the success rate is very low. So what conditions do kei incubators need to ensure?

Nursery should avoid waterlogging

This is the most important rule when incubating a kei. When you accidentally let water soak into the cut of the body, it will cause rotting. That's why a lot of people incubate kei with a very low success rate due to stinking.

Therefore, when nursing a kei, you should remember: Use a very sharp, thin, antiseptic star before cutting the body into small pieces. Allow the cut to dry without direct contact with water for a few hours to dry completely. You then use glue or nail polish to heal the cut.

As a result, avoiding water seeping into the kei incubator is that you can increase the success rate of incubating very high.

Keep the cut dry

Warm enough temperature: The temperature determines the plant's shoot and root growth. If nursery keiki is in too cold weather, you may not see any hope. When the weather warms, such as spring, the rate of kei bouncing is much higher.

I personally incubate the kei in the winter due to receiving gifts but the success rate is not high. The inappropriate temperature makes the sleeping eyes wake, the roots come out but the seeds are nowhere to be seen. Spring came, the eyes only started to wake up, so it took me all winter to take care of me but did not get high results.

Nursing does not need too strong light

Many of you ask why the kei nursery does flower? The one who stimulates the flower is the kei, the one who stimulates the kei flower again ... too annoying, right. Actually, kei nursery flowers or flowers are due to the light mode, not the humidity as people think.

If you want to plant flowers, put the sleeping eyes of the plant in an area with low light, limiting strong sunlight. Sunlight helps to differentiate sleep eyes very strongly. If you grow your kei in the right season of flowering under strong light conditions, the chances of your eye's flowers to sleep are great. At the same time, strong light will cause your substrate to dry quickly, not ensuring the moisture reward so often that kei can bounce normally. When the kei is very young and weak, under too strong light it can be burned and is more likely to burn, atrophy is very high.

Keep in light, light sunshine in the morning

Should use kei stimulants: Kei stimulants are now very popular on the market and very diverse. With my kei stimulus experience, actually we don't have to take medicine to wake our eyes to sleep. In the spring, summer and autumn, when the temperature is warm, we can choose a normal nursery without the presence of stimulants that can still have success rates of up to 80%.

If you hit kei in winter, this is absolutely not recommended. However, if you must stimulate, you should use stimulants to improve germination rates. For kei stimulants you should remember to use very little or no atonic because the concentration of anonic is easy to make the kei hot and rot phenomenon occurs.

However, if there is drug intervention, a high germination rate will cause a large number of kei, making the tops stunted and slow to grow. Even if the proper care regime is very easy to damage and shrink the germs. Many sprouts without sufficient nutrition, germination and poor resistance make the germs unable to withstand the cold winter.

A Kei drug

We must use drugs in case the stem is too old and difficult to sprout. Personally, I still don't really like taking drugs. Everything should go with nature because of course what is beneficial comes with harm.

Note that you should limit or do not use Atonik to stimulate roots, with a light dose, it may be okay, but if the amount is large as on the package, it will easily cause rot, damage the sleeping eyes. of the tree.

Stemming from passion, perseverance and hard work, after 23 years of research and research on orchid growing techniques, I have accumulated a lot of experience in propagating and cultivating forest orchids effectively.
