It is believed that eustoma first appeared in South America. The flower quickly attracted the interest of world breeders, who bred many varieties and hybrids. Initially, the eustoma had a beautiful purple or blue color. But gradually breeders brought out varieties with petals of red and white flowers, as well as pink, cream, apricot varieties.
For those who wish to grow eustoma at home, seeds can be used for this. After sprouting, it is necessary to provide them with proper care. One of the stages is the correct dive of the seedlings.
Diving of eustoma seedlings
Dive plants 6-7 weeks after the greenery appears on the surface of the earth. After diving, containers with transplanted sprouts must be kept for some time under a film cover and only after a while gradually accustom to the air. In this case, it is necessary to assess the humidity in the room well. With excessive dryness, the plant will develop poorly, often dying.
Transplanting seedlings to a permanent place
Since eustoma is a greenhouse plant, it feels good in protected ground. It is better to grow it in a specially equipped flower garden. For him, you should choose a bright place, hidden from the wind. Eustoma will need to provide special nutrition, light and fertile land. Landing in open ground should be carried out after frost, but even at night, flowers will need to provide shelter. It will need to be done until the plant gains sufficient strength.
If the eustoma is indoor, it should be transplanted into a separate pot after four true leaves appear on the seedlings. A layer of expanded clay is poured onto the bottom of the pot.
