What kind of flowers can't be missed in summer? Of course, it's the sunflower. Because its flowers will follow the sunlight, and the flower shape is large and bright, which is very lovely.

Its flower language gives people a positive energy: loyalty, firm belief, and forge ahead. Sunflowers in the market are generally divided into fresh cut flowers and potted plants. They are commonly sold in summer and winter. The price is about 15 yuan for 5 flowers. Its flowering period is about 7 days in summer and about 15 days in winter. How to maintain it daily?


First of all, after getting the flowers, be sure to remember to remove its leaves. Otherwise, the leaves are likely to suppress the stems and prevent the stems from absorbing clean water. Then cut the roots at an angle of about 45 degrees, rinse it with running water, and also clean the flower vase for flower arrangement.

Also, the stem of the sunflower has a lot of fluff, so the water volume should be controlled at about 5 centimeters. Too much water is likely to cause rotten roots. Add nutrient solution and a little 84 disinfectant before arranging the flowers. Finally, when changing water daily, change the water about every two days. Try not to expose it to the sun. Just put it in a cool and ventilated place.

Regarding the maintenance of potted sunflowers, it is somewhat different from fresh cut flowers. In terms of light, it needs to ensure 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day. You can consider near the south-facing window. For soil selection, choose well-drained garden soil. You can also add some decomposed compost or perlite to improve the soil quality. In terms of daily maintenance, keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Generally speaking, water once a week in spring and summer, and reduce to once every two weeks in autumn and winter as the weather gets colder.

So, can it be grown in particularly cold areas in the north? The answer is yes, but it should be known that it should be placed indoors. Its optimal growth temperature is between 18 and 30 degrees Celsius. If the temperature is below 10 degrees or above 30 degrees, it should be placed in a suitable indoor space environment.

Finally, regarding the issue of fertilization, many flower friends think that they won't fertilize the potted plants if they just want to raise them casually. This is wrong because every kind of flower requires a lot of nutrients during the growth period. It's "fantastic" to think that it can be satisfied just by watering it daily.

It is recommended that if flower friends raise potted sunflowers, they can apply a fertilizer rich in phosphorus and potassium once a month, which is helpful for the development of flowers.
