Video about buttercups (ranunculus). Today, on March 4, we should be able to sow flower plants before half-past eleven, if we have any according to plan. Today I want to plant Asian ranunculus, and try to grow nodules from seeds that look like spiders, and only in the 2nd year I will plant, after wintering these nodules, if we manage to grow them. I’ll plant and see what happens. In the end, you and I did exactly the same experiment with colored callas , why not try with ranunculus, especially since it is an incredibly beautiful plant of the Lyutikov family.

So, in the month of March, we should put buttercups in a box. The soil should be light. She took "terra vita", added vermiculite, thereby lightening the soil. Shoots should appear after 2 weeks. Sprinkle the seeds a little with earth (I set aside the earth softer and crumbly) and cover with glass. The most unpleasant thing is that we need to find a temperature of 10-15 ° C - this is the best option for growth. In the phase of 4-5 leaves, we will pick seedlings if something comes from 5 seeds in a packet. And in May you can plant this plant in open ground and grow. By August, these buds, nodules, should be tied. We will wash them, treat them from rot with potassium permanganate, special preparations, and put them as winter gladioli and callas in winter storage. Next year we will plant these nodules and get such beauty. You have to try. Try, experiment, for that we are amateur gardeners and gardeners.
Look, dear friends, what seeds. Some lionfish with a nose, and with a seed inside, on this plate. Seeds are collected from the very first flowers that are tied to the plant, when such flowers appear on the stems, the very first flower is wrapped in fabric, gauze so that the seeds do not crumble and then, when the seeds ripen, they are carefully collected so that there are no self sowing.
Planting seeds of buttercups (ranunculus)
Look, we have to spread 5 winged seeds as far apart as possible, because in the literature they write that it is not advisable to dive, so I immediately took a relatively large box for 5 pieces. She lowered the ground lower, in the plan to sprinkle, and then how it goes. I pour in calla lilies. And here is how to be? We will experiment!
I laid 5 of these plates, 5 seeds on the ground spilled with potassium permanganate (potassium permanganate solution). Now I will sprinkle with light earth and spray with water from a spray bottle to soak the soil. That's all. I planted these seeds, spread them on the surface, and sprinkled with very soft, fluffy soil. You say what these white inclusions on the ground? It is vermiculite who does not know. He is needed for loosening the soil, he has a lot of interesting properties.
So, the seeds of a gorgeous plant - buttercup are sown here. Let's see if we can grow tubers, but for this we need to go a very long way. Now we cover it with a bag or put it under anyone who wants it. Be sure to wash water droplets every day. Set to a temperature of 10-15 degrees. After about 20 days, the first shoots should appear.

Today we will pay attention to the literature, which reveals the characteristics of those plants that we choose for planting. I already told you about such an interesting plant as ranunculus, an Asian mixture of colors. A very beautiful buttercup plant, a family of buttercups. In order to grow it, you need to understand what its agricultural technology is and whether we can do it on our own at home.
As I promised, I already planted it, sowed buttercups. You saw this sowing of seeds in the form of winged seeds. She set her landing, covering with a plastic bag and creating a hotbed, in a place where no more than 10-15 ° C. This is the temperature that is necessary for the germination of this plant. For 2 weeks you need to maintain such a temperature regime, and then we will see what happens. Will they sprout, will shoots appear in 14-20 days.
I dug up a large amount of literature. I really like the series of books by Hession, an English author who writes about indoor plants, container plants, flower arranging and everything about flowers in your garden. Everywhere I looked about ranunculus. There is material in only one directory, "All About Flowers in Your Garden." Let's see what they tell us about this plant. All material is presented here.
Acid buttercup is a poisonous plant. But the plant that we are offered here on this seed bag, I really live, not in the picture, I saw for sale in the spring, when they sell a large number of petunias , various planting material, flower and decorative crops, I saw it at the bazaar. Just stopped, opening her mouth looked at this beauty, could not take her eyes off. I generally could not understand what it is. Roses, not roses? Huge deeply dissected leaves, a beautiful light green thick and fairly short stalk, 20 centimeters, it has such a huge flower, with a half-palm full of petals. This is just an extraordinary miracle. I fired up to acquire this plant. Due to the fact that I already had a certain plan of landings in the last summer season, I omitted it. Now, having come to the store, preparing for spring sowing, I suddenly saw this plant at the stand of seed material. Caught fire. I bought it. What I found out for myself: I found out for myself such a thing that everything can be grown from seeds, even tubers. In this situation, it is necessary to achieve the appearance of a tuber in order to plant these tubers next year, so that they are dug up previously, and transferred to winter storage, like gladioli, like feces. And already in the spring, having planted in the 2nd year, they will give us this flower. The flower is extraordinary. Sowing I have already carried out what happens next - we will look.
If you buy tubers in stores right now, keep in mind that this is unproductive. In the literature they write that it’s better to buy tubers in the fall, and leave them to spend the winter, arrange winter rest. Then it will be clear that this is the tubers of this year, that is, we will see what they are, how they are stored and so on. If you buy them in the spring, you do not know how they were stored, in what condition they are, and it may happen that they do not grow. Therefore, let's try to plant the seeds of buttercups in this growing season, this summer we will grow tuber, and then, having kept our tubers, we will plant the next year. Well, if all 5 nodules formed, but there will certainly be some attacks.
So, if you decide to plant nodules, these bumps, these bananas down, in bunches, what are you doing? Before planting, you need to soak it for 2 hours from decay in the Maxim solution, where there are trace elements, where disinfection will take place and the fight against decay, with what buttercups are subject. You will land the soaked tubers in April. You need to plant to a depth of 7-10 cm in loose soil, nails down. The soil should be loose, sand, pus, drainage must be put into the hole. Watering is plentiful, like cucumbers - as they say in the literature. Planting scheme: distribute the tubers after 12 cm. You need to plant buttercups without dividing the root, do not damage anything there, completely and completely. Organic fertilizers, loosening will be required. If you and I grow in a room, then flower soil and sand are good. Once every 3 years transplanted. We can carry out the same procedures in a room flower pot. This plant is damaged by rot due to watering and dense soil, so keep in mind.
An adult tuber over the summer will give you 7 children, this plant can grow on its own, so you will propagate it the next year. A young tuber will give 3 small children over the summer. If you grow tubers in a pot, then you need to take it with a volume of at least 7-10 liters, naturally a large amount of drainage. You need to plant 6-7 plants.
