Adenium Obesum Black Ruby Desert Rose 10,20 семян Всхожесть: 90%

Роза пустыни — суккулентное растение, произрастающее в сухих пустынных регионах Африки, Азии и Танзании. Его часто используют в качестве комнатного растения. Из луковичного, часто скрученого основания появляются толстые сочные серо-зеленые ветвяющиеся стебли с небольшим количеством листьев. Летом колокольчатые цветки красные до оттенков розового. Листья могут быть от зеленых до пестрых.
Выращивайте это растение на полном солнце в горшечной почве, подходящей для кактусов и суккулентов, в горшке с несколькими дренажными отверстиями. Дайте растению высохнуть между поливами, но поливайте в периоды вегетации. Обеспечьте удобрением весной, чтобы стимулировать цветение. Принесите это растение в помещение, когда температура наружного воздуха достигнет 55 F и уменьшите количество воды во время покоя. Роза пустыни также используется в бонсай.
Это необязательно, но я не вижу веских причин пропускать его. Замочите семена в неглубокой посуде с фильтроточной водой в течение двух часов перед посадкой. Это смягчает жесткий внешний слой семени, улучшая как успешность, так и время прорастания. Рекомендую замачивать семена не менее одного часа и не более шести. Семена прорастают через 1-2 недели.

Ruby Red Swiss Chard Seeds

Sowing: Direct sow Swiss chard about a week after the last spring frost, planting it 1/2″ deep in compost-enriched soil in full sun. For harvesting the entire plant, space the plants 4-5″ apart; for continual harvesting of the outer stalks, space the plants 8-10″ apart for larger growth. For a continuous summer crop, plant more ruby red Swiss chard seeds every two weeks. Germination should occur in about a week. Swiss chard can survive light frosts, and can be planted as a fall crop.

Growing: Keep the soil evenly moist and weed free with a layer of mulch. Moisture is especially crucial to the seedlings in the first stages of their growth.

Harvesting: Individual leaves can be harvested for greens as soon as they reach a height of 6-8″. The whole plant can be cut at the surface of the soil, but to ensure continued growth and another harvest, leave an an inch of stem. Outer stalks can also be harvested individually, leaving the heart to grow.

Seed Saving: Since Swiss chard is wind pollinated, be sure to separate them from other varieties of chard and beet by at least two miles to preserve genetic purity. Chard plants must weather the winter in order to produce seed; in warmer climates, simply mulch the plants. In cooler climates, dig up the roots and store them in sand, without the roots touching, in a cool and humid location; plant them in early spring. In the spring, the plants will go to seed; wait until the seed heads are fully grown and dry before removing them. The seeds will readily come off the stems after they are completely dry. Store ruby red Swiss chard seeds in a cool, dry place for up to five years.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

Dark green, shiny leaves with red veins and bright crimson stalks make this a great vegetable that is both decorative and edible! The plants grow up to 24″ tall, and the tasty uniquely flavored leaves can be used fresh or frozen. Ready to harvest in 55-60 days.

Ruby Red Swiss chard was introduced to the United States in 1857. In spite of the name, Swiss chard originates in the Mediterranean region, where professional and home chefs alike use it for salad greens or as a flavoring in soup or rice. The first written mention of this vegetable in the United States is in The American Farmer magazine, where Baltimore farmer Gideon Smith reported his experimental planting. It remained a curiosity until after the Civil War, when gradually it gained in popularity.
