The simplest and most unpretentious March flowering plants that you can find in any flower shop and in most large supermarkets are hyacinths. They are sold either simply in the form of bulbs planted in the ground, or already in a sprouted state. They can be placed anywhere in the house, as they are not very whimsical about lighting, but they require regular watering, especially when flowering begins. They do this from mid-March to May, and then fall asleep until the next year.
What to do after flowering
- Leave a half-empty pot until next year, if it does not interfere much.
- Throw away the bulb and buy a new one next year, which allows you to make a low price.
- Plant a plant in the country, the lawn in front of the house or in the nearest park. Most likely, it will take root without any problems and will bloom again next year, eventually forming a clearing of flowers.
When buying unopened green hyacinth, pay attention to the color of the plastic pot in which it is sold — it is usually the same color as future flowers on the plant.
Another unpretentious bulbous flower, crocus, blooms in March and blooms until April-May. To ensure that flowering lasts as long as possible, do not place crocuses in direct sunlight in stuffy, very warm rooms. Also, water them no more than once every four days, as the earthy coma dries up, as they get sick and die from waterlogging.
You can feed these flowers with phosphorus and potassium if you want the stems and buds to appear as quickly as possible. This is another interesting feature of crocuses: by creating the right conditions, you can make them bloom at any time of the year, even in winter.
Most likely, you are used to cut tulips in bouquets, but they can also be grown at home in a pot. You will need a large onion weighing 30 grams or more so that it has enough nutrients. Look for late varieties: «Aristocrat» or «Triumph», they are the ones that germinate in March. They are planted at the end of November and left in a dark, cool place until spring.
If you don’t want to wait that long, buy germinated bulbs in March at large flower shops, put them in a warm and well-lit place and remember to water about twice a week. Yellowed leaves should be cut off, and the room should be ventilated so that the plant is not too stuffy and flowering lasts a long time.
In order to grow a beautifully blooming orchid at home, you need to follow the recommendations.
- Use a special soil selected for this plant.
- Find a well-lit but not hot spot in the house. In this case, it is better that the sun’s rays are diffused, and not direct.
- Provide space around for aerial roots.
- Stick a stick into the soil for support, which will be needed when the plant throws out a twig with flowers.
- Periodically spray the plant with a spray bottle, especially if the room has batteries or an air conditioner that dries the air.
The most popular varieties of daffodils for growing at home are Papery, Ziva and Geranium. Due to the fact that this is a spring plant, it needs a temperature of about 18-19 ° C, fresh air and timely watering. If you plant the bulbs in December, you will get buds in March, and if you do it in March, the flowers will ripen by May.
After wilted flowers must be cut off, and the stem left intact. Apply fertilizer to the soil and transplant into open ground. Then next spring the daffodils will bloom again.
