Gloxinia terry and its varietal variety


Gloxinia or Sinningia is one of the most flowering and popular indoor plants. Every year the register of varieties is replenished with new hybrids bred by breeders. The most beautiful of them, terry gloxinia, become favorites in private collections.

Gloxinia or Sinningia? What is the difference

Simple gloxinia have 1 row of petals, terry - two or more

For a long time it was believed that these are synonyms for the same plant species. But now botanists have separated these two concepts and believe that synningia and gloxinia are two completely different plants.

The fact is that gloxinia have a thickened scaly rhizome, the so-called rhizome. Sinningia, on the other hand, produces pronounced underground tubers.

In some countries, gloxinia is considered a natural species, and synningia is garden, or it is called false gloxinia. But traditionally, many growers call sinningia gloxinia.

How are gloxinia classified

According to the characteristics of the flower, gloxinia have several divisions.

  1. By the number of rows of petals - simple and double. Simple gloxinia have 1 row of petals, terry - two or more. The flowers of terry gloxinia resemble a large carnation or rose.
  2. According to the color of the corolla - monochromatic, chintz and tigers. Chintz have specks or peas of the same size according to the basic tone. Tigrines - the same speck or polka dots, but also a border around the edge of the petal. For monophonic ones, a white center is allowed.
  3. In the shape of a flower - bells and tidea. Tideas are conventionally called five-petal flowers, oblong and convex in one place, they are also called shoes.

Terry Gloxinia flowers resemble a large carnation or rose

But this distinction is very conditional, since it also depends on the conditions of detention and care. For example, a miniature can be overfed with nitrogen, or the standard can be grown in poor soil. In such cases, the outlet size will not be an indication of the classification.

Growing eggplants in Belarus - the secrets of a generous harvest

Among all nightshade crops, eggplants are the most hardy and stable during the development phase of fruits and are ideal for growing in our climatic zone. And they show the best results not in greenhouses, but in open ground. In the mild climate of Belarus, summer temperatures and moderate air humidity are very favorable for the formation of flowers and the growth of fruit mass.

You need to start sowing seeds for seedlings 80-90 days before planting seedlings on the site. These figures are based on the fact that seed germination takes 7-10 days, and the optimal age of seedlings before planting in the ground is 70-80 days. It is at this age that the seedlings are distinguished by the greatest vitality and easily adapt to new conditions.

Growing eggplants is even more exciting than tomatoes and peppers, since "blue" ones have a huge number of highly decorative varieties with fruits of different colors (white, yellow, red, brown, striped) and shapes (round, oval, plum). Fruit weight varies from 60 grams to 0.7 kg. There are shrub varieties that can be grown on a windowsill all year round. Among them are baby eggplants with a compact tree-shaped crown, densely covered with miniature fruits.


Hydrangea in your garden landscaping

It is very important to find the optimal place for the hydrangea, taking into account its needs and the possibilities of the site. Hydrangea loves partial shade, but an adult shrub can tolerate prolonged exposure to the sun well if provided with regular and abundant watering. And this plant loves to drink, it is not for nothing that its Latin name hydrangea translates as "a vessel with water"!

In our country, 3 out of 70 existing varieties of hydrangea are most often grown:

  • paniculate
  • treelike (wild or smooth)
  • garden or large-leaved.

Each variety has its own characteristics, which should also be taken into account so that the plant fits as organically as possible into the space allotted for it.

  • Once the seedlings have reached 10–12 cm in height (at about 6–8 weeks of age), they should be dived. Transplant at once 3-5 copies in one container. The buds will be tied after 3-4 months.
  • Attention! The germination rates of store seeds are approximately 60%. To increase the efficiency of planting at any stage, the granules can be punctured with a sterile needle.

    As a rule, eustoma seeds are planted in January-February. But if sowing is carried out in July or early autumn, then flowering buds can be obtained in winter. Then, by summer, the plant will bloom again. To do this, feed it with fertilizers and cut off the faded buds.

    Healthy Clematis - Lush Bloom

    So, the choice of a place for planting clematis must meet the following culture requirements:

    1. Adequate Lighting - Clematis requires good lighting, but intense UV rays throughout the day can severely burn the leaves. It is especially important to protect the clematis plantings from the strong sun in the south, where long daylight hours are characteristic in summer. That is why clematis vines are planted next to climbing roses, girlish grapes, hops. The foliage of other plants shades the clematis and prevents the sun's rays from burning the leaves.
    2. Blowing protection - it is not recommended to plant clematis in areas open to winds. In the first year, weak stems react very negatively to strong winds, which cause the leaves and first buds to break off. In winter, the cold north wind contributes to the freezing of vines.
    3. Avoid wet soils - clematis should not be planted in areas with high groundwater levels. With a distance from the roots to the aquifer within 0.8-1.0 m, clematis should be planted on artificially arranged hills. A drainage layer must be laid at the bottom of the planting pits. Broken brick, gravel, pebbles can be used as drainage.
    4. The size of the planting holes - on different types of soil, planting holes are dug of different diameters. On light soils, a depression of 50x50 cm is enough; on heavy soils, the size of the seat is increased to 70x70 cm.
