When you receive the bareroots plants

- Plant them into the pots ( the pots are not too big compare to the bareroot plants)

- Water for first time and keep in shade for 1 week, then Full/half sun.

- Soils mix with 50% perlite and 50% potting mix. Add some Warm Casting and Osmocote slow release fertilizer into the soils.

 

1. Winter care for plumeria & Adenium

if the temperatures are Below 40F degrees for more than 1 week ,then

Both plumeria & Adenium bring inside for dormant. 

A. Plumeria- Big plants bring inside garage , small plants bring inside house ( remember to cut all leaves)

B. Adenium

1. bring them inside with pots and no water at all ( cut off all the leaves......)

2. You can bareroots all the plants, mean take off all the soils, very clean and dry, then bring inside house.

3. if you have greenhouse and temperatures control in winter, you can keep them in pots with the leaves.

 

 

2. Spring- Start to bring out after Easter

- Soils mix with 50% perlite and 50% potting mix. Add some Warm Casting and Osmocote slow release fertilizer into the soils.

- Water as need if the soils dry, maybe every 2-3 days

- Fertilizer with Super Thrive every 1-2 weeks

 

3. Summer ( June-August)

- Water everyday with fast drain soils.

- In June give some super bloom if need

- Fertilizer with Super Thrive every 1-2 weeks

4. Fall - September to Thanksgiving

- Less water

- Fertilizer with Super Thrive every 1-2 weeks.

Benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide in the Garden Recognized by the United States EPA as an organic treatment for agricultural crops, hydrogen peroxide offers many benefits to gardeners. Pesticide and Fungicide When it comes to the cultivation of organic food crops, root worms and other soil pests are difficult to spot and even more difficult to treat for. Fortunately, feeding a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution to the infected plants will rid them of these soil-dwelling pests. Even a small amount will rapidly degrade external tissues and kill fungus, gnat larvae, cutworms, and parasitic nematodes upon contact. A diluted solution can also be applied as a foliage spray to control the populations of soft-bodied pests, such as aphids and spider mites. Soil Aeration and Root-Rot Treatment An over-watered garden can easily fall victim to root rot. This rapid deterioration of plant roots can establish itself after just 24 hours of moist, oxygen-deprived soil conditions. Again, hydrogen peroxide comes to the rescue! Watering thoroughly with a diluted solution, it will break down rapidly in the soil, boosting oxygen levels and expelling any anaerobic conditions. Water Treatment Many gardeners in urban areas with chemically treated municipal tap water choose to treat their water with hydrogen peroxide. Due to its strong oxidation properties, it will remove chlorine, chemical pesticides and any organics that may be present. Why Hydrogen Peroxide Works The cleansing, insecticidal and aeration properties of hydrogen peroxide are all made possible by the chemical reaction that takes place when it breaks down. Without going deep into chemistry, it should at least be known that under normal conditions, it will decompose to form water and oxygen. The formula can be observed as such: 2H2O2 becomes 2H2O + O2. In the initial part of the reaction, a single oxygen atom is formed. Since it is unstable, this oxygen molecule will bind quickly. The majority of the time, the oxygen will bind with another oxygen to form a stable O2 molecule (aeration property), but some of the time, it will react with organic tissue of pests, thus acting as an oxidizer that destroys tissue (pesticide property). Application Soil Pest and Root Rot Treatment * Mix one part of additive-free 35% hydrogen peroxide with ten parts water. * Water infected plants thoroughly. The soil will bubble as the oxygen is released. * For pests, water with the mixture twice a week, allowing the top 2 inches of soil to dry between watering. Root pests should subside within a week. * For root rot, water plants very thoroughly, then allow the soil to dry. The top 2-3 inches of soil should be completely dry before returning to a regular water regimen. If the process is done correctly, root rot can easily be treated with only one watering of peroxide.

Variegated Monstera Care.

Monstera Grow Tips:

Monstera can be rooted in either sphagnum, water or directly in potting mix.

Light: Indirect Bright Light. No Direct Sun, which can burn the plant.

Humidity/Misting: (70%-90%) This is the most important part to rooting monstera cuttings. Mist entire cutting at least once a day. If the humidity around the plant gets too low for too long, the cutting will begin to shrivel and show stem rot

For Water rooting: Simply place the cutting in filtered water and place in a location with bright indirect light. Ideally keep the cutting upright and about half of the stem submerged. Regularly change the water. Roots will develop over the next few weeks. Do not add fertilizer to water when rooting. Transfer to potting mix when roots are developed.

Potting Mix Rooting: We typically plant cuttings directly into potting mix as the roots can develop throughout the soil and this gives the roots some aeration that water does not provide. Use a 6”-8” pot (preferably 6” — larger pots will dry more slowly). Plant the cutting with the bottom stem down into the soil up to  where the leaf stem meets the “main stem” so that the top stem is out of the mix. If your cutting has an aerial root, it helps to have it planted into the mix. Water thoroughly after planting. Then water whenever the top of the soil begins to dry so that the cutting has consistently lightly damp soil while its rooting. Monstera is not picky about potting soil and will thrive in just about any peat or coir based potting mix found in your local garden center. Perlite may be added at 20-35% for better drainage if not already in the mix. The cuttings root easily on their own so rooting hormone powder is not necessary and may burn the end of the stem if too much is used.

MONSTERA “NODE” GROW TIPS

After receiving Node: Remove excess sphagnum from the top portion of the container. Keep enough sphagnum in the container so that half of the node is still covered. If desired, the top portion of the sphagnum can be saved for later use or replacing the bottom portion should it be needed.

Light, Humidity/Misting, Watering: Follow all of the “Basic” tips from above. Keep Sphagnum damp throughout rooting.

“Mini Greenhouse”: You can use the provided plastic container the node shipped in, as a little greenhouse to keep the humidity up for the node. This will help the node spike a new mainstem quicker. If you are going to seal the top on, it is recommended to poke/drill  5-10 holes into the top to allow for some air exchange. Every few days, its best to pour out any excess water and re-water the sphagnum with fresh water. Over the next few weeks, you’ll notice a new main stem emerge from the node. Once it is emerged 2” or more or the node has formed roots, the node is ready to be transplanted into potting mix or water to continue rooting.

Long Term Care Once Rooted:

Light: Indirect Bright Light for faster growth, but can tolerate and grow in Lower Light.

Water: Water thoroughly when the top of the soil dries. Basically keep the mix lightly damp but not soggy wet. Use a pot that has bottom holes to allow excess water to drain.

Fertilizer: Every 2 weeks with All Purpose Fertilizer (such as NPK 20-20-20). We use 20-5-10 Mix at the rate recommended on package. Increase fertilization if leaves yellow or if browning occurs on edges of leaves.
