Learn the characteristics of your Anthurium to choose the best method of its propagation. If the plant has a horizontal rhizome, it can be removed from the soil and divided into segments with a length of about 10 cm.
Powder fresh slices of the rhizome pounded charcoal, activated. After that Anthurium will need to trim all the sheets.
Place the pieces of cut root (delenki) in small flower pots filled with fresh, damp sphagnum or sand. Make a small greenhouse. To do this, put the pots on inverted pallet or other base and drop in glass jars with a wide throat or into small empty aquarium.
Pour into the bottom of the tanks water. Don't let impromptu greenhouse to dry out, while on delenka don't Wake up and begin to blossom with new leaves. From this point it is necessary to transplant the Anthurium to larger containers with soil of the same composition in which the mother plant grew.
Anthurium with short vertical stem is recommended to be propagated by way of grafting. The quality of the planting material used shoots with a height of about 10 cm from the base of the mother plants. The cuttings should be cut with a very sharp knife on the bias line, and the slices sprinkled with charcoal.
The young shoots can be taken care of on the model of zelenok, maintaining the optimum indoor temperature +25 degrees. Moss or sand, keep moist, and the cuttings are not regularly sprayed. After rooting young Anthurium transplant to a permanent place.
To propagate Anthurium by seed makes sense when you try to bring new varieties or the desire to get a lot of young colors. This method of breeding plants is much more troublesome, it will require the grower a lot of time. To start you will need the adults pollinate the flowers with a brush or a sponge.
When the berries started to ripen (that is, start with no effort on your part to fall off of the cob), collect the harvest. Remove seeds and rinse to remove mucus. To seeds not there was mold, hold it for a couple of hours in a very weak solution of potassium permanganate.
Fill the spacious container of steamed moss and peat (1:1). You can sprinkle the top cellular layer of chopped pine bark. Another option substrate: peat, sand, leaf mold (1:0,5:2) and a bit of charcoal. While the seeds are fresh, they should be immediately put on the substrate and sprinkle a bit.
Pour the landing and put in a homemade greenhouse, for example, in an empty aquarium or under plastic wrap. After a couple of months appeared the germs are encouraged to replant on the same substrate, maintaining the distance between plants of about 3 cm
Care for planted Anthurium, otherwise the flowers may not grow. Don't forget that they need a lot of reflected light (not direct sunlight!), they tolerate temperatures from 25 to 28 degrees without sharp fluctuations. The substrate must be kept moist, and emerged shoots are sprayed with soft water. If you managed to correctly plant the Anthurium in the year the flowers can be moved to a new place of residence in individual pots.
Older plant will transplant into a large container that he freely developed aerial roots. As a primer for grown Anthurium growers use different mixes; among the popular components – turf, coarse sand, leaf mold, pieces of charcoal and pumice, pine bark and peat. The main rule – the substrate must provide good aeration (natural ventilation), it is normal to absorb moisture and retain nutrients. In soil you can add even a little bit of expanded clay or broken bricks.
