Violet “Le Magents” is well known to fans and is the decoration of many home flower beds. The grade was removed by the breeder from Vinnitsa Elena Anatoly Lebetsk, the author of many other beautiful hybrids. All of her braids are the prefix le- and differ in the stability of morphological signs and beauty.
Description of varieties
It should be clarified that “Le-Majegen” is a typical representative of the family of Geesnery genus SENPOLY, and no relation to the family of violet. However, in everyday life, SENPOLIA is often called violet, therefore, in this article we will call it that way. Violet “Le Magents” was bred in 2011 and, despite his youth, quickly received widespread recognition of lovers of decorative plants. Outwardly, it looks very impressive, as it has large terry or semi-world red-burgundy flowers, cut off by very thin, sometimes interrupted cut. Such a color looks very elegant and allows you to consider a variety one of the most beautiful among room colors.
A characteristic feature of the variety is abundant bloom, a long time and sometimes reaches 2 months. Flowerines have a rather strong structure and contain from 3 to 5 flowers with a diameter of 5 cm. Moreover, the intensity of the bootonization is noted even at first flowering, which is distinguished by Le Madzhent from other species.
Due to its hybrid origin, the plant is sometimes sports. So, you can often see sports with practically white flowers or wide bright border.
The leaves at violet have quite large sizes and are located on long stiffs. From the reverse side, they are painted in a silver-matte tint, which over time acquires pinkish tones. However, as the plant agrees, not only the color of sheet plates changes. Flowers acquire a darker color, and the thin edging is replaced by a rather wide stripe.
Conditions for growing
Like most hybrid varieties, Le-Majer requires the creation of a number of favorable conditions necessary for its cultivation.
Selection of place and illumination
The plant is quite demanding to light and prefers bright, but at the same time scattered light. This requirement is due to the tenderness of fleshy leaves, which even with the slightest overheating receive extensive burns. The duration of the daylight for violets should be from 10 to 12 hours, so in the winter, especially in the regions with a short light day, artificial lighting should be used. You can also place pots on the windowsill on the south side, while controlling the temperature on it does not fall below 18 °.
In the summer months, the violet is better to clean up to the eastern or Western windows, and if there is no such possibility, then create a moderate shading, placing in the shade of higher colors.
Termorem and air humidity
The violet “Le Magents” is a rather thermal-loving plant and perfectly feels at a temperature of from 18 to 25 °. If in the winter in the apartment is not very warm, and the windows come to the north, it is recommended to wrap a pot of foam layer with a thickness of at least 2 cm. And it is also necessary to regularly ventilate the room, trying to prevent drafts. The optimal humidity of air for violet is 50-60%. Therefore, in the winter months, especially if there are central heating radiators in the house, you should use a moisturizer or hang wet sheets and towels on batteries.
The violet “Le Majer” grows well both in a special purchase of soil and in the substrate cooked independently. For its preparation in equal shares take deciduous land, peat, humus and moss sphagnum. The mixture is thoroughly mixed, the fine garbage and remnants of the roots are removed from it and split lumps. The resulting composition should be loose and mild, without foreign inclusions and residues of the organic. Then the soil pour into the baking sheet and placed in the oven for disinfection. The procedure is carried out at a temperature of 200 ° for 20 minutes.
The variety is equally growing well both in clay and plastic pots, so the choice of capacity depends on personal preferences of the flower. The prerequisite is only the diameter of the pot, which for young shoots (children) should be at least 6 cm, and for an adult plant – from 8 to 12 cm. Planting a violet in a more overall pot is not recommended. This is due to the fact that while the flower does not grow up the root system, the corresponding pot volume, it will not bloom. Usually it takes about 2 years.
In addition, the pot must be equipped with holes for removing extra moisture. Otherwise, the water will begin to be stuffed, will cause the root rotting, and the plant will die.
Tips for care
Violet “Le Magents” requires quite painstaking care and increased attention. Plant care includes several stages: watering, timely transplant and subcortex.
Watering the flower is needed as the upper layer of soil drying up, using a temperature of 22-24 ° dying water. Watering the plant should be strictly under the root, not allowing the water droplets to fall into the leaves. Such a restriction is due to the presence of a pile on sheet plates, which holds the drops and does not allow them to drain or evaporate. As a result of excess moisture, the structure of the sheet is broken, and it begins to rot. Watering can be carried out in 3 ways: lower, drip and fityl.
- Nizhny Poliv allows you to evenly saturate the ground with water and consists in the following: in deep container – a bucket or pelvis – poured so much water so that the pot is hiding in it on 3/4 of its height. The bottom of the pot must be perforated. The flower is held in this position until the top layer does not dare. Next, the pot is removed from the water and placed on the tray to remove excess moisture.
- Drip method It consists in watering the plants directly under the root and is performed using a large srintschik or canoe glasses with a long and narrow nose. Watered so that the growth point and leaves remain dry. This method is the least labor cost and widely used by flower.
- Fitical method It is as follows: the rope from natural fibers is passed through the drain hole pot, and its opposite end is placed in water tank. This method allows the root system to take exactly so much water as it needs.
Undercalinking violet “Le Majegen” is produced 2 times a month with the exception of the rest period lasting from November to February. Fertilizers contribute to moistage soil immediately after watering. The finished mineral complexes are used as feeding, specially designed for SENPOL. Good results gives the introduction of liquid organic composition “Stimit”, the microbiological solution “Baikal-M1” and the complex mineral supplement “Master” with marking for Senpolya “20.twenty.20 “either” 18.18.18 + 3 “.
Before making fertilizers, you should carefully read the instructions for the use of the drug and in no case can the dosage exceed.
Palok transplantation produce once a year at the beginning of spring until the occurrence of hot weather. This period is most favorable for two reasons:
- The plant has already been out of the state of rest when it could not be touched;
- before the start of the bootonization, and even more so before flowering, there is still enough time during which the flower will have the opportunity to adapt after transplantation.
The violet transplantation process occurs step by step.
- At the bottom, the pot lay 3 cm layer of clay, on top of which poured cooked from peat, leafy earth and humus mixture. Filling the pot are produced by about 1/3 of the total.
- Then the center of the violet is put in the center and gradually fill the emptiness substrate.
- The next day, the plant is watered, after which they are transferred to ordinary care. Water flower on the day of transplant is not recommended. This is due to the fact that the roots could be damaged, and they needed at least a day in order for the wounds to drag. Otherwise, the process of rotting damaged roots can begin, and the plant will die.
Diseases and pests
With flaws in the care and lack of attention of Senpolya “Le Majer” can get sick. The most frequent agens are fusariosis and mildew. Treatment of these diseases is hampered by the fact that the violet cannot be sprayed, since the delicate leaves of the plants after such a procedure are dying. Therefore, it is easier to prevent the disease than to treat treatment. So, the appearance of rotary spots (fusariosis) is caused by a sharp decrease in temperature or excessive irrigation. Puffy dew, the first sign of which the appearance of white spots is considered, is also the result of the excess of moisture. Both diseases relate to fungal and appear due to improper care.
As for pests, besides the invasion of the whiteflies, nobody delivers special problems. If white flies still attacked the plant, then adult individuals are caught by hand, after which the leaves are treated with a solution of green soap (10g on 1 liter of water) and thoroughly wedged with a napkin.
