Decide on the material of the pot is suitable for your plants. The basic material for the manufacture of flower pots is clay or plastic. The materials have both advantages and disadvantages. Clay pots with glaze look good, but almost not allow oxygen. Sometimes pottery in addition painted with oil paint, also do not allow the penetration of air inside. Therefore, a clay pot for any plants it is better to consider only as a temporary shelter. Using a homemade plant pots, watch miss any of their material to the roots enough air.
Choose a pot depending on the specific plant. Pots of plastic more practical, cheaper, in addition, they are more lightweight. But because of the ease of the plastic pot turns fragile, more fragile. If the plant is large, it is better to plant it in a sustainable ceramic pot. Plants planted in unglazed pots of clay, watering profusely – due to the porosity of the clay moisture is evaporated there in large numbers. In containers made of plastic, humidity lasts longer, but the result of stagnation of water the roots can be affected by rot.
Inspect the root system of cyclamen. If the roots have overgrown it in width, choose a pot with a larger diameter. For roots grown down, choose a tall pot.
Pick up a pot of cyclamen, depending on what the age of the corms. Large pots for cyclamen – not the best option, they are the plant does not bloom and even rots. To a limited extent cyclamen may bloom earlier, but the bloom turns out weak. Therefore, when a small corm, if the age of the plant a year and a half, the pot will fit with the diameter of 7-8 cm, two - or three-year bulb will fit a pot with a diameter of 14-15 cm
Make sure that the selected container was a good hole with a diameter of about two inches. This will ensure unimpeded flow of water. In a very large size pot holes can be done several.
New ceramic pots can be soaked in water with addition of superphosphate. New ware plastic, just rinse thoroughly with hot water.
Before you plant the cyclamen in a pot, wash the tray, ready for planting. You can just use hot soapy water and brush, clay pots are better warmed in the oven – this will prevent the plants from possible infections.
