Potted Roses: Plant Transplant
Potted roses are among the most beautiful and vibrant plants. Their decorative value is enclosed in elegant buds and fragrant flowers. The exceptional variety of flower forms, the inimitable wealth of colors from delicate to catchy tones, subtle differences of aromas - all this is combined in a special way in this plant.
Preparing a pot for transplanting
Before planting a young plant, it is necessary to properly prepare a flower pot. If it is plastic, then it is enough just to pour it with boiling water or rinse it in a solution of potassium permanganate. If this is a new ceramic pot, then it should be soaked in water for one day. Here, the temperature of the water does not matter much, but it is still better that it is hotter. Old ceramic pot, before dunk, you must thoroughly sponge from the remnants of the earth. Do not use any cleaning products. Indoor roses do not tolerate chemicals even in low concentrations.
Creating quality drainage
When the pot is completely dry, lay out the drainage. It is best to use expanded clay or pieces of red brick. If at the bottom of the pot there are large openings for the release of excess water, then a drainage layer is one centimeter thick. If those are absent or too small, then a layer of three centimeters is filled up. Like other indoor plants, the rose does not tolerate stagnant water, its roots begin to rot, which very quickly leads to the death of the whole bush.
Directly transplant room roses
Potted roses are transplanted along with the earthy clod, bare roots are not strictly recommended. Before removing the transplanted plant from a temporary container, the soil in it is watered abundantly. Only after the water is fully absorbed and softens the earthy lump, remove the plant. In a pot with drainage, they cover the soil with a small layer and add granular fertilizers. Next, it houses the plant along with the earthy clod and is filled up on the sides with fresh soil. The soil in the pot is carefully crushed so that up to the edge of the pot remained three centimeters.The rose is a very delicate and demanding houseplant, so when choosing a pot, it is better to give preference to a ceramic product, because it contributes to good aeration, while plastic pots do not allow air at all.
Watering room roses after transplanting
After transplantation, the plant needs rest, move it away from bright sunlight to the north side. It is not necessary to water it, it is enough to spray it once a day, preferably in the morning. Only two or three days later, indoor roses can be watered in the usual way. It should be remembered that this plant requires bright lighting with diffused light. Therefore, watering must be adjusted depending on the rate of drying of the soil and the time of year. In the summer, it will be enough twice a day, and in the winter - a week. Do not allow water to enter the lower leaflets of the plant.
