Problems with flowering petunias observed mainly in potted representatives, that is, those that are grown at home or on the balcony. If you look at the plants that grow in the ground, almost all of them abundantly and beautifully in bloom. The flowers in the pots have color only in those cases, if the container in which they are planted, wide and deep.
It is worth remembering that Petunia only feel good in a large amount of land, so if you wish to see on the balcony floriferous plants, then planted one stalk in a container of not less than five liters.
If petunias are already planted in small pots, and the number of buds themselves are very small, and there is a way out. First wait until the plant will bloom. Further, when the number of colors will be more than buds, cut their stems by a third, remove the flower from the pot and cut the roots in half. Take the pot two times bigger than the previous and put Petunia in fresh soil. Put the pot in a shaded area for a week previously to feed the plants (for feeding, for example, "Monophosphate" or "Akvarin"), and over time move on the sun.
Quite on the growth and formation of new buds is affected by caring for Petunia. That the plant bloomed for a long time and abundantly, you will need to perform the following sanitary procedures:
- if the flower in the sky, and has few side stems, then you need to nip off the tip of the longest shoots;
- you must daily remove the fading flowers, and together with the peduncles (if this is not done, the plant will devote all his strength on the formation of bolls);
- be sure to remove the dry leaves, especially in the lower part;
- time to water and feed in a timely manner. Petunias like excessive watering and do not tolerate lack of moisture.
Generally, these flowers love the heat and the light, the optimum temperature for growing is 25 degrees, however the 30 degree heat they transfer well. If Petunia does not bloom, then revise these conditions if necessary, insulate the balcony and install artificial lighting.
