Formation of a lush crown of balsam

Indoor balsam is a very beautiful flower. There are more than 20 varieties of this plant. Indoor balsam flowers can be red, pink, or white. There are also varieties with bicolor buds. The peculiarity of an adult balsam is that its root system does not have a central root, although the seedling does. It dies off as the flower grows, decomposes and fertilizes the soil. Due to this, all balsam roots develop equally well, and the aerial part of the flower forms a high stem, which hardens over time..

The central shoot of the plant develops more slowly than its lateral shoots. Lateral shoots, growing up, sink to the ground like branches of a weeping willow, so a small tree can be formed from a flower planted in a pots. If you start forming a flower even at the seedling stage, then balsam is ideal for planting in a hanging planter. After formation, the central shoot will stop growing, so the lateral growths will grow faster..

If you do not form a balsam, then its buds will bloom earlier, while the flower will spend a lot of energy and nutrients for the growth of the central shoot, therefore, it will form fewer peduncles.

Balsam formation

The first shaping of balsam can be done three weeks after planting the seed in the ground. By this time, the seedling will have thrown out four seven-lobed leaves. If you want to form an ideal plant from a flower for planting in a hanging planter, then pinch the top of the central shoot as early as possible. After such a formation, lateral shoots will actively grow into growth..

To form a tree from balsam, you need to wait another two weeks until the stem of the plant stiffens. Then cut off all the lower leaves of the balsam and pinch the central shoot of the flower. All sections are treated with crushed coal and wrapped with electrical tape. After a while, lateral growths will go from the top of the central shoot of the balsam. Approximately two weeks after formation, the flower will look like a small willow, and in a few days the indoor balsam will bloom.

After the formation of balsam, the plant must be fertilized with vermicompost. You can also use chemical fertilizers, for example, urea in combination with potash fertilizer. It is necessary to feed with a warm solution of fertilizers.
