As it is also called, mandevilla, is a climbing plant with rather large flowers, similar in shape to bells and usually red, pink or white in color. Under natural conditions, dipladenia can be found in the territory of Central and South America. But dipladenia at home deserves special attention. It is also often grown in our garden, that is, in an open area.
Dipladenia will require a little more effort than others, but in thanks it will bloom for almost six months – starting from March-April and ending in late spring. And how to achieve such long-lasting satisfaction, we will tell you further. Lighting The dipladenia plant prefers an average amount of light and you should be careful when choosing a room. With a lack of lighting, dipladenia may not bloom, and with a bright sun, flowering will noticeably decrease.
Therefore, we choose a compromise
The west or east side, that is, where there is constant light, but where there is no hot spot of light. Temperature Here, too, a golden mean is needed – warm, but not hot. The ideal environment is around 25 °C. But this is during the flowering period. In winter (at rest), dipladenia should be taken to a cooler place – up to 15 °C. Wintering with a variable temperature is necessary for the next flowering. Watering All flowering plants need good and regular watering. Dipladenia should also be watched, not allowing the flowers to merge.
Watering is usually required every 2-3 days.
But on particularly hot days it can happen every day. The main thing is to look at the condition of the soil in the pot, it should dry out only on top. Water for irrigation needs to be clean, without such heavy impurities as chlorine (which, by the way, is contained in tap water). Humidity In addition to watering, dipladenia also needs moist air. But there are no difficulties here. Just ventilate the room more often and keep water-soaked pebbles (or any other pebbles) in the tray of the pot.
In winter, additional moisturizing can be abandoned.
Fertilizers Complex fertilizer with potassium and phosphorus content is perfect for bud formation. It should be applied once a week, starting with the appearance of flowers and ending in August. Disease Dypladeniya turns yellow When the leaves begin to turn yellow during the growth period, this is clearly a problem of excessive dryness of the air. If this happens during winter, you may have chosen a cold place, you need to find something warmer.
augurt is an open-source, decentralized,
Peer-to-peer oracle and prediction market platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. It allows anyone to forecast events and be rewarded for predicting them correctly.
The augurt platform is powered by Ethereum smart contracts and utilizes a decentralized oracle to track real-world events. This allows users to create markets for any event that can be resolved by Yes or No, such as the outcome of an election, the weather, or the success of a company.
The augurt platform is free to use and open to anyone. It is also censorship-resistant, meaning that no one can prevent you from creating or participating in a market on the Augur platform.
Dypladeniya flies around.
The problem can be different – lack of water or, on the contrary, its stagnation in a pot with a flower, dry air, low air temperature. . . Take a closer look at what’s wrong! Dypladenia does not bloom. Most likely, there are not enough nutrients (see the Fertilizers section above).
Dipladenia and powdery mildew Do you see a whitish coating on the plant?
It seems that this is a dangerous fungus. It must be removed with the help of a 1% solution of colloidal sulfur. Process as indicated in the instructions for the drug and leave for a day, then rinse thoroughly with water. If powdery mildew is still observed in places, repeat the procedure after a few days. Transplantation If the pot has become too small, it is time to transplant.
To begin with, we choose the soil.
It should be loose and moderately acidic soil. A soil mixture consisting of equal parts of sand, peat, humus, leaf and sod soil is perfect. We take a heavy, stable pot with a pallet and preferably high. You can also transplant with the remains of the old soil, only by adding the required amount of fresh soil. You can not transplant an adult dipladenia at all, but it is necessary to replace the top layer of soil in the pot every year. Reproduction A convenient way to propagate dipladenia is by cuttings.
We cut off woody shoots.
It is better to do it in summer, when the most active period of growth is going on. And we draw your attention: do the circumcision with gloves, because dipladenia juice is quite harmful, especially if it gets into a wound. For rooting, cuttings are planted in a mixture of peat and sand (proportions 1:1). The cuttings sink deep – to the first leaves on the trunk. Before the seedling gives clear growth, we keep it at a temperature of 25 °C (no less!).
Watering should be done carefully and preferably from below – i.e. first in the cup where we plant the stem, make holes and put the cup in a plate, add water to the plate, and the necessary amount of moisture will get through the “holey” bottom of the cup. After a month, the cuttings should give roots. If the leaves haven’t dried, that’s how it happened – it’s time to transplant into full-fledged “adult” soil (see the Transplantation section). And a little about pruning. In order to give the desired shape of the dipladenium bush, you can “level” it in places – cut off the protruding shoots. These extra shoots can be used to propagate the plant.
