Houseplants are a piece of summer that you can admire in a dank autumn or cold winter. Therefore, flower and deciduous ornamental crops grow in almost every home. Usually they need only the simplest care. The result will be much better if you perform all the necessary operations, guided by the lunar and zodiac cycle. Let’s figure out why this is so important and determine the favorable days for transplanting and planting indoor plants and flowers in 2022.
Influence of the zodiac constellations
Detailed calendar 2022
How the phases of the moon affect plants
Earth’s closest neighbor, the Moon, has a huge impact on our planet. Its approach and removal causes the ebb and flow of the oceans and seas, and the change of phases affects all living things. A full lunar cycle includes approximately 29 and a half days. During this time, the satellite planet makes a complete revolution around the Earth and goes through four phases.
New moon. The Moon is closest to the Sun, turned to the Earth by the «night» side. Her disk is not visible. Plants should not be touched during this time..
growing phase. The satellite is moving away from the Sun. The disc becomes visible. At first, only part of it is visible, gradually its size increases. At this time, sap flow in plants is directed from the root system to the stem. It is recommended to transplant, plant, feed and propagate crops.
Full moon. The satellite is located between the Earth and the Sun. Its disc does not cover anything and it is very visible. During this period, manipulations with any crops are undesirable, but pest control will give especially good results..
Waning phase. The Moon begins to move towards the Sun, its visible disk gradually decreases. Sap flow is directed from the top to the root system. It is recommended to engage in pinching, pruning, crown formation, planting bulbous and tuber crops.
Many flower growers follow these recommendations when choosing the day when it is better to transplant indoor flowers or carry out other procedures. But you need to understand that this information is advisory, that is, you need to use it taking into account real conditions. So, if favorable days for transplantation are indicated on the calendar, but the culture is in the dormant phase, it still cannot be transplanted.
The influence of the zodiac cycle on plants
The zodiacal constellations also influence living organisms. Depending on the trigon or the nature of the energy of a particular zodiac sign, it affects the growth and development of a plant organism in different ways. This is worth considering when building your schedule for caring for indoor crops.
|Fire (Sagittarius, Leo, Aries)||Promote seed maturation and fruit development. The wounds inflicted on the culture during this time period take a very long time to heal. Unwanted cropping.|
|Water (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer)||Particularly beneficial effect on the development and growth of leaves. Green mass is actively growing.|
|Earth (Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus)||Activate the development of the roots and the whole plant as a whole. Especially favorable for root crops and bulbs.|
|Air (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius)||Favorably affect the development of fruits, buds and flowering. Especially good for the development of climbing crops.|
Astrologers consider Leo, Aquarius and Aries to be infertile, and therefore undesirable for planting and transplanting signs. You should not carry out any planting work during this period, but weeding and pest control will give a particularly good result.
Water signs and Taurus are the best option for planting flowering crops. Curly and tall plants are best planted under the influence of Sagittarius, Virgo or Gemini. For bulbs and tubers, it is worth choosing a landing time in the waning lunar phase in Taurus, Capricorn, Libra, or any of the water signs.
Planting and transplanting indoor plants according to the lunar calendar
We have compiled a monthly calendar for the grower, taking into account all the factors described above. With it, it is easy to determine whether it is possible to transplant indoor flowers today.
This month, daylight hours are significantly longer. Indoor cultures perceive this as a signal for active development. During this period, you can transplant, feed, gradually increase watering.
|Annuals||6 to 8, 11 to 13, 16, 20 to 22|
|Perennials and biennials||6 to 8, 11 to 13, 19 to 22, 25 and 26, 29 and 30|
|Curly and ampelous||8 to 13, 16, 23 and 24|
|Tuberous and bulbous||From 19 to 22, 25 and 26, 29 and 30|
Daylight is already long. Summer and spring flowers finally wake up, winter-blooming ones gradually pass into a dormant phase. Transplants and top dressing continue.
|Annuals||2 to 4, 8 and 9, 15, 26 and 27|
|Perennials and biennials||2 to 4, 8 and 9, 12 to 15, 18, 21 and 22, 26 and 27|
|Curly and ampelous||5 to 7, 12 to 15, 19 and 20|
|Tuberous and bulbous||2 to 4, 8 and 9, 15.18, 21 and 22|
In late spring, continue to transplant and plant. In regions with a warm climate, they begin to take out pots of home flowers to the street. They do this for a short time at first, gradually increasing the time of “walks”.
|Annuals||2, 12 to 14, 22 to 24, 27 to 29|
|Perennials and biennials||2, 5 to 7, 10 and 11, 22 to 24, 27 to 29|
|Curly and ampelous||2 to 7, 10 to 14, 17 and 18, 29, 31|
|Tuberous and bulbous||18 to 20, 27 to 29|
The main care this month comes down to regular feeding and protection from excess sunlight. If necessary, you can transplant plants.
|Annuals||8 to 10, 19 and 20, 24 and 25|
|Perennials and biennials||1 to 3, 6 to 10, 19 and 20, 24 and 25, 30|
|Curly and ampelous||6 to 10, 13, 26 and 27|
|Tuberous and bulbous||8 to 12, 15 and 16, 24 and 25, 30|
On hot summer days, home flowers are often sprayed. Experienced flower growers are advised to take them out into the rain, if possible. Need regular feeding, shading, periodic washing of the leaves. If necessary, carry out landing work.
|Annuals||6 to 8, 16 to 18, 20 to 23|
|Perennials and biennials||3 to 6, 16 to 18, 20 to 23, 30 and 31|
|Curly and ampelous||3 to 6, 10 to 12, 23 to 25, 30 and 31|
|Tuberous and bulbous||6 to 10, 12, 20 to 23, 25 to 27|
The end of summer is a good time for the rejuvenating division of perennials. During this period, ornamental crops tolerate transplants well. If the home flower garden was taken out into the street, they begin to prepare it for “moving” into the room.
|Perennials and biennials||1 to 4, 13 and 14, 17 to 19, 22 to 24, 28 and 29|
|Curly and ampelous||1st to 4th, 6th to 8th, 19th to 21st, 28th to 31st|
|Tuberous and bulbous||2 to 6, 8 to 10, 17 to 19, 22 to 24, 29 to 31|
In the first month of autumn, all indoor flowers are brought into the house from the street. They begin to reduce watering, less often spray the bushes. During these periods, some cultures can be propagated by cuttings, for example, tradescantia, streptocarpus, saintpaulia. Transplantation or transshipment of home flowers is possible.
|Perennials and biennials||13 to 15, 23 and 24|
|Curly and ampelous||3 and 4, from 15 to 18, 23 and 24, 27|
|Tuberous and bulbous||1 and 2, 5 and 6, 13 to 15, 18 to 20, 27 to 29|
During this period, the preparation of ornamental crops for a dormant period begins. If it is not needed, the bushes can continue to be moderately fed. The heating season begins, so additional air humidification is required. Bulbs are planted in pots for winter distillation.
|Perennials and biennials||6 to 8, 11 to 13, 15 to 17, 20 to 22|
|Curly and ampelous||3 and 4, from 15 to 18, 23 and 24, 27 and 30|
|Tuberous and bulbous||1 and 2, 13 to 15, 20 to 24, 27 to 29|
In November, most indoor plants are in a dormant phase.
|Perennials and biennials||2 to 4, 7, 12 to 14, 19 to 21, 30|
|Curly and ampelous||19 to 21, 26 and 27|
|Tuberous and bulbous||7, 12 to 14, 19 to 22, 26 and 27|
Winter is a period of rest. Indoor flowers require minimal watering, rare top dressing. Hypothermia and drafts should not be allowed.
|Perennials and biennials||1 and 2, 5 and 6, 9 to 11, 14 to 16, 27 to 29, 31|
|Curly and ampelous||14 to 18, 21 and 22|
|Tuberous and bulbous||5 and 6, 9 to 11, 16 to 21, 31|
