The unpretentious spathiphyllum, or Spathiphyllum, has long gained well-deserved popularity in indoor floriculture in our country. Correct transplantation of spathiphyllum is a guarantee of maintaining the external attractiveness and health of the indoor plant.
Competent care of spathiphyllum, including timely watering, ensuring the necessary temperature and light conditions, allows for a room and decorative culture to grow correctly and quickly. Bushes in this case occupy almost the entire flower pot, and a well-developed root system is able to braid the entire soil. Spathiphyllums love cramped planting containers and flower containers, but every three years, to obtain abundant flowering, be sure to transplant into large pots. The main reasons that make it necessary to transplant a plant at home are as follows:
It is very important after purchase to carefully push the curtain and conduct a thorough inspection of the lower leaves. A properly developing indoor flower does not have drying leaves. If there are deviations in the development of indoor decorative culture, including the presence of sluggish or faded leaves, then it is urgent to transplant the plant and provide it with better care.
Spathiphyllum transplantation is best done in the early spring, after the plant leaves the state of natural dormancy. but if necessary, a transplant can be carried out in the fall. In any case, it is very important to properly prepare the planting substrate, as well as make the choice of a quality, optimal for growing spathiphyllum flower pot.
Despite the fact that, most often, in the conditions of indoor plant growing, a ready-made planting soil is used, properly prepared independently soil, which should have certain acidity indicators, as well as characterized by friability and sufficient fertility:
It is very important to carry out high-quality soil disinfection. Such pre-planting preparation of the soil substrate can reduce the risk of damage to the planted plant by pathogenic microflora. Disinfection can be carried out both by special preparations of a chemical nature, and by means of processing at high temperature in an oven.
Spathiphyllum does not enter the flowering phase until the root system of the plant has fully mastered the entire volume of the flower pot. It is recommended to use for planting or replanting a room culture of Spathiphyllum low landing tanks, the diameter of which does not exceed 18−20 cm.
The material of the flower pot can be absolutely anything, but experienced amateur gardeners who have cultivated such indoor culture as spathiphyllum for many years traditionally prefer ceramics. The bottom of the flower pot must have relatively large drainage holes. Before filling the planting container with a properly disinfected soil substrate, it is mandatory to rinse it well and treat it with a weak solution of potassium permanganate.
At the bottom of the flower pot, be sure to fill in a good layer of drainage, which protects the root system of the Spathiphyllum plant from rot damage. As a drainage layer, you can use almost any available material, including expanded clay, brick fight or pebbles. At the bottom of a new flower pot that is close enough for a houseplant, one third of the total height needs to be filled with clean drainage, and then the prepared soil.
Extreme care must be taken with the roots of the plant, since the root system of Spathiphyllum is very delicate and does not respond well even to minor damage. The survival rates of the decorative culture entirely depend not only on proper planting, but also on adherence to further care technology.
Immediately after planting, the plant must be shed well with standing room temperature water. Spathiphyllum is undemanding and unpretentious in terms of growing conditions. Nevertheless, Compliance with growing technology allows you to get a highly decorative and abundantly flowering indoor plant:
A set of care measures also involves the systematic examination of a room culture, and, if necessary, the implementation of preventive spraying with special chemicals or folk remedies.
