Another way is that the plant is cut into two portions: the top and bottom. This will delay the formation of the fruit of 2 weeks.

A portion in which the remaining roots, will escape (stepson). Stem with leaves should be placed in a container with water or a solution and wait for the emergence of a new root system. Only after that can be planted in the ground.

  • Srednepererosshey considered seedlings 45 cm long, with 6 leaves and buds of emerging. The likelihood that she will get accustomed, is 60%, then there is a risk that the new ovary appear, and previously appeared not bring the harvest. These shoots are more prone to disease. They are planted at an angle, so that not only the roots, but also the lower part of the stem is underground. When using the method A. Kazarina soil is saturated with a large number of one-time fertilizer and watered abundantly, after which the plant is left without care. It stimulates the root system stronger and pumping water out of the ground independently.
  • Seedlings from 50 cm to 1 m are called strongly overgrown. If it turns out to ensure that they have taken root, it is necessary to make efforts to the plant did not die from the disease, wind, and so forth. Planted them horizontally, back to the south. After fertilization, irrigation and soil mulching tying the stems straw or cover material that protects against evaporation of moisture and sunlight.
