I believe that friends who know a little about traditional Chinese medicine will know the traditional Chinese medicine "Platycodon grandiflorus", whose roots have the functions of clearing heat, detoxifying, reducing phlegm and relieving cough. Today, let's talk about the "Chinese Platycodon grandiflorus" with purple small flowers.

Chinese Platycodon grandiflorus is also known as Bellflower and Bursicle Flower. The flower shape is like a pentagram, and the petals are pointed. Many flower stall owners use it as a bouquet for matching in daily life. The flowering period is relatively long. The ones sold in the flower market are mainly fresh cut flowers and potted plants. If you buy a bunch of fresh cut flowers and bring them home, the first step of maintenance is to unpack them. After cutting the roots at an angle about 1-2 centimeters, soak them in deep water to rejuvenate the flowers. Because it belongs to plants, it is very prone to water shortage. Therefore, the rejuvenation time should be 3-5 hours. After the flowers are rejuvenated, you can tidy up the leaves on the flower stems, leaving only 1-2 ornamental leaves, and remove all other leaves. Finally, after the leaves are removed, the whole becomes very clean and refreshing. Take a favorite vase, add 1/2 - 2/3 of water into it, and then cut the roots at an angle according to the height of the vase and put it in the vase. The water should be changed every 2-3 days. Pay attention to ventilation and avoid direct sunlight.

If you buy a potted plant and bring it home, you should give it more light for daily maintenance. You can place the Platycodon grandiflorus in a place with direct sunlight, such as the balcony or beside the window. For the soil, you can use ordinary garden soil, or a mixture of leaf mold and sand. As long as the soil has good air permeability and drainage, it can be used.

In terms of watering, keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Generally speaking, water once a week in spring and autumn. In summer, due to the hot weather, it may be necessary to water once in the morning and once in the evening. In winter, due to the cold weather, reduce the frequency of watering to prevent frostbite. Finally, fertilization is indispensable. A compound fertilizer should be applied once a month during the growth period. If you want beautiful flowers, you can appropriately increase phosphorus and potassium fertilizers before the flowering period. During the maintenance process, if you find withered flowers, cut off the yellow or dead ones. Doing so is beneficial to the vegetative growth of the plant.
