One of the most famous varieties capable of hitting unusual blossoms is the Uzambar violet “Frosty Cherry”. In the article, consider than noteworthy this plant, what is its features and characteristics, how to care for the sensipoline of this variety.
A bit of history
Initially, it should be noted that SENPOLIA, related to the Gesnery family, are often called violets. Despite the fact that another name of Senpolya Uzambarskaya violet, to the family of violet and, consequently, these plants do not have. However, in this publication, with the designation of SENPOLY, the “violet” conversation will be used, which will simplify the reading and perception of text.
So, Uzambar violet “Frosty cherry” – The result of long and painstaking works of the known breeder to. Maub. To withdraw this extraordinary grade, scientist Morav spent more than 10 years.
It is noteworthy that in many photos accompanying a description of the variety in various sources, plants look different. On some photos of the Flowers of “Frosty Cherry” may look bright and rich, on others – light and even pale. Such differences are usually due to the peculiarities of this SENPOLIA, which, with any nature of flowering, still produces an indelible impression.
Description of varieties
SENPOLIA “Frosty cherry” – a neat compact plant with simple pointed leaves having a heart-shaped base, and large terry flowers. Flowers of this variety can reach 4 centimeters in diameter. In young plants, flowers have smaller sizes compared to adult sensipions.
Coloring of petals Two-color, combining pale pink or cherry-red core and white edging. As you grow up both the flowers and the leaves of the violet of this variety begin to become darker, purchasing more rich coloring. The fact that the life cycle of flowers is coming to an end, testifies their darkening and fading.
The “frosty cherry” variety is very popular in flower water due to unpretentiousness, as well as abundant and long flowering. The blossomed flowers are kept on the plants of heated and very long.
With proper care, the duration of flowering in this sensipoly can reach 10 months.
A group of flowers at the “frosty cherry” is formed in the center of the socket. Buds are formed in large quantities, gathering in thick brushes.
Flowering phase usually occurs in summer and winter periods. Saturation of coloring flowers depends on a number of factors, but first of all from lighting. The better this violet will be lit during flowering, the brighter and intensively will be the color of its flowers.
Among other advantages of the violet of this variety, flower products are noted for care, resistance to temperature differences, mass formation of buds during flowering period. Despite the fact that the “frosty cherry” is considered a relatively young variety, She perfectly established himself as a fruit, undemanding and non-peculiar plant, whose cultivation forces even inexperienced crops.
Care and content conditions
Despite the unassumature of the plant to care, it is important to create the most comfortable conditions for him. With a competent approach, SENPOLIA will correctly grow and develop, pleased with its regular, long and abundant blossom.
The main rules for the care of the “Frosty Cherry” include such conditions as:
- Proper lighting;
- steady temperature mode;
- control over the level of humidity;
- Compliance with the regime of polishes and feeding.
The implementation of these conditions is not only favorably affected by the plant, but also will significantly reduce the risks associated with the development of diseases and the invasion of pests. Failure to follow the rules of care in the cultivation of SENPOLIY inevitably leads to a sharp decrease in plant immunity, as a result of which they become vulnerable and susceptible to diseases and pests.
Uzambar violet “Frosty cherry”, like all SENPOLIA, is a light-affiliated plant. With a shortage of light, the flowers begin to stretch, coloring flowers becomes pale, and the violet itself acquires a painful view.
To avoid the problems associated with the lack of light, pots with plants are desirable to install on the windowsill in the eastern or western part of the house. This location will provide a violet soft and scattered light in sufficient quantities.
It should be borne in mind that Straight sun rays are disadvantaged for these beautiful plants. Being during the day under the stream of direct sunlight, violet can get burns. To prevent this, in hot sunny weather, plants should be dialed, even if they are located on the windowsill in the eastern or western side.
To achieve maximum long flowering, experienced rabbing recommended Plant, artificially increasing the light day. For this apply special phytolambamps or conventional fluorescent lamps.
The correct temperature regime is very important for such thermo-loving plants, what are SENPOLIA. The most comfortable they feel indoors where the temperature at the level of + 22 ° C is maintained. Temperature differences are very harmful to these gentle creatures.
Reducing the temperature to + 16 ° C and below adversely affects flowering. In this case, the plants are completely stopped forming a color scheme and buds. However, the strong increase in temperature does not effect on the state of SENPOLIA Flowers.
With significantly hot conditions of the content of the flowers of violets begin to become small, increasingly moving away from the reference.
Suitable air humidity
Control over the level of humidity in the room where the Uzambar violets grow, very important for the full development and flowering of plants. Experienced rabbing recommended watching, So that air humidity has steadily maintained at 50%.
Improving air humidity up to 65% and more can lead to a deterioration in the appearance of flowers. In this case, they become simple and non-plated from intricate-terry.
Do not increase air humidity using violet spraying. They carry such a procedure painfully, and in some cases they can start rotting at all.
To prevent the moisture deficit in the air near the plants, it is desirable to establish a wide bowl or pallet with water. Evaporating, water will saturate air, felt by the loss of moisture in hot weather.
It is also important to ensure that the air in the room is not only wet, but also fresh. Provide the influx of fresh air allows not only good ventilation, but also regular ventilation, during which plants should be temporarily removed from the room.
Cold air and drafts are very dangerous for gentle sensipolium.
Watering and feeding
Uzambar violets are painfully perceive violations of waterings and feeding. Watering plants follows as land drying. The soil in the pot must be moderately moistened, but not wet and raw. Excessive soil moisture can provoke the development of fungal infections and rot, so it is impossible to pour plants.
During irrigation A stream of water is directed strictly around the edge of the pot, following it to do not get on the leaves.
Waterings are carried out only with warm water.
Feed sensipolia exclusively with complex fertilizers designed specifically for these plants. For full development and blossoms of violets, it is recommended to carry out feeding of mineral compositions about once every 2 weeks. The procedure should be carried out in the phases of growth and flowering. During the rest, feeding stops.
It is impossible to abuse feeders, since SENPOLIA is painful perceived excess nutrients in the soil. Inexperienced flowerflowers, seeking to achieve more magnificent and abundant flowering, often make a mistake, crossing plants with fertilizers. As a result, it turns out the result contrary to expectations when violets begin to actively increase the green mass, but they completely stop blossom.
Growing such a delightful variety of Uzambar violets, which is the “frosty cherry”, a rare color descender does not want to propagate this plant. The easiest way to reproduce SENPOLIA implies the use of its leaves (leaf cuttings).
For breeding, you should choose a strong, well-formed and healthy sheet with a cut of at least two centimeters. It is important that the leaf is cut directly at the flowers with the flowers of the most saturated color. In this case, SENPOLIA will retain its varietal signs, and the flower model will not receive what is called Sport by violet. Sport – term denoting the differences of violets from its varietal characteristics. Such sensipolia do not adopt the color and the shape of the leaves of maternal plants that the flower flows are considered a serious defect.
The cut sheet is put in a glass with water, where it is kept until the formation of the roots, or immediately planted in the ground. After planting, the sheet is covered with a glass jar, which is periodically removed for ventilating. In such conditions, it is very soon from the maternal leaf. They are usually required about 1-2 months old, after which the younger generation can be transplanted into a more spacious pot.
