Growing houseplants - some fun and in some ways even exciting. But sooner or later the usual "home" culture begins to pall, and then I want to cultivate something non-standard. In this case, you can try to find rare species of cacti and ferns overseas, and you can try to grow something from the stone.
In this article, I decided to collect five plants, which, in my opinion, the easiest way to grow from seed at home.
If you are a novice grower or do not want to spend a lot of time for the care and custody, pay attention to the orange tree. This undemanding plant can be grown in the home of a simple stone. Within six weeks after planting the first seedlings will appear on the surface. So that they can get as much light as planting should be done in late winter or early spring. We need to put the largest seeds of ripe fruit that had been soaked in water for 10-12 hours. Each will have to choose a separate pot.
It should be understood that the cultivation of the orange tree of bone is more of a hobby than a process of obtaining the fruit. Achieve fruiting will be difficult at home.
As is the case with an orange, make fruiting avocado from the room is not easy, so the plant is often grown for its interest in the decorative purposes. To get the result, it suffices to take a bone from the ripe fruit and put it in moist soil sharp tip up. Part bone thus should be above the ground surface.
Avocados is growing quite fast, loves light and high humidity. By high temperatures refers negatively. It considered comfortable interval between 16 ° C and 20 ° C.
In addition to soil, avocado pit can germinate in a transparent jar with water. For beginners, it will be a great opportunity to see all the stages of the emergence of the plants.
Another popular plant that can be grown at home, is a lemon tree. For the landing will need a large stone, taken from the ripe fruit. It can be planted at once, but can be washed and soak for several days in a moist cloth. Both methods are valid, so you may choose any one you like. Bone planted to a depth of three centimeters. The soil can be purchased at a flower shop, but you can make yourself from simple ingredients.
As is the case with other citrus, fruit-bearing plants grow will not be easy. However, if you have the desire and good governance, it is quite possible.
Grow grenades from the bones is not as difficult as it might seem at first glance. Much more difficult to achieve fruiting. The fact that on the shelves you can find high-quality fruit pomegranates, daughter plants which will not save the parent signs and likely will not bear fruit. Instead, the resulting tree will necessarily please decorative appearance.
Suitable for planting pomegranate well-drained soil of equal parts of peat, sod of earth and sand. Bones are planted at a depth of one centimeter.
If the main goal is to get the fruit, you need to choose a decorative dwarf varieties. The easiest way is just to buy a small tree in a large flower shop.
Another representative of citrus, which can be grown from the stone home is Mandarin. Plant likes bright light and high humidity. After planting the first seedlings can be seen in 3-4 weeks. With the growth of tangerine tree will need a permanent transplant.
