Many flowerflowers love cyclamen for their beautiful buds. This plant may be subject to various diseases. We will tell you more about the methods of treating this beautiful flower from diseases and pests.
Causes and signs of defeat
Different influences can cause damage to the flower. Experts note that the reasons leading to the damage to the plant are most often the following:
- The mooring of the soil in which the flower is located;
- incorrectly selected room temperature;
- irregular watering;
- reduced humidity;
- incorrectly selected soil substrate;
- Reduced insolation.
Each of these factors leads to the fact that the appearance of the cyclameman changes. So, an increase in the air temperature in a room where these flowers are located, leads to the fact that their beautiful buds fall out. And such a change in the microclimate can cause the leaves begin to dry.
If the winner of Cyclamen noted that the leaves of his beloved flower were dried, then in this case it is necessary to measure the air temperature in the room, as well as adjust the multiplicity of watering.
A decrease in temperature can also damage the plant. Suspect the negative changes in the flower, if you watch it carefully. So, if a suddenly blooming cyclaman dropped its buds, then in this case it is necessary to estimate the temperature in the room where it is. If this decorative flower is frozen, then in this case it is necessary to take urgent measures, which will help protect it from death.
Correct watering is an important condition for good plant growth. Some (especially beginners) flowers are afraid to cut cyclamen and watered it quite often. Such frequent watering, as a rule, causes damage to the indoor flower root. If the flooded cyclamen began to rot, in this case, watering should be significantly reduced. At the same time, after overflow, the plant requires careful care.
If the cyclaman is tagged, then in this case it is necessary to evaluate the humidity. Cyclamen is a plant that freshes in too dry and dies. And experts recommend fans of cyclamen to think about changing humidity in the event that the flowers droop.
Change This microclimate indicator may also be required if the cyclaman did not allow buds and did not bloom on time.
If this decorative flower leaf is twisted, then in this case, experts recommend to estimate moisture in the room. Too dry air indoors quite often leads to such specific changes. If you cannot change the humidity in the room with a flower, then with a large share of the likelihood of its owner will have to notify several weeks later, to note that his favorite was completely called and dust.
Various parasites can also lead to the damage to the flower. Microscopic pathogens mushrooms in the foliage of cyclamen, leading to a change in its appearance. The affected leaves in some diseases caused by parasites are twisted down and pale. And also on the foliage may appear characteristic white flare.
Diseases caused by parasites can cause flowers to die and disappear.
Cyclamen diseases proceed with changing the appearance of plants. The reason for the yellowing of foliage can be fusariosis. In this case, the change in the sheet begins, as a rule, from the top of it. The cause of this disease is specific fungi. The danger of this disease is that microbes can damage the internal structures of the plant. At the same time, the sick plant begins to wither. If it does not start taking the treatment of cyclames in time, in this case, fungi may damage its root apparatus. In such a situation, the flower will be extremely difficult.
Excessive moisturizing of the soil substrate – a fairly frequent reason for the appearance of rot. And it can have a different color. The danger of this pathology is that there is strong damage to the root system. In such a situation, the full-fledged growth of cyclames is impossible. If you rot quite a lot, unfortunately, it is not always possible to save the plant.
In this case, experts recommend the sick flower to urgently isolate, which will reduce the risk of infection of other plants.
Reduced air temperature indoors and dampness – the reasons leading to the appearance of a gray rot. The appearance of this disease gives the defeat of the root apparatus of the flower fungi. Even a novice flower dealer can identify this disease. To do this, carefully examine the leaves and cyclamelates. The presence of a gray wet fleet on the leaves, dying of the flowers and the strong fiction of buds – signs of this disease.
Finding cyclames in conditions of severe humidity and elevated temperature can lead to anthracnose. This disease also give fungi-parasites that are in plants. These parasites, as a rule, affect the condition of the leaves and flower. It is usually possible to suspect such a disease only when the cyclamen “will release” the flower. If they look dry and have a pale color, and the leaves will dry quickly and begin to fall, in this case, you should think about the treatment of a flower from anthrax.
Different parasites can also lead to flower damage. Some of the pests that lead to the damage of the plant are the shields. Plant can affect both adults and larvae. With severe damage to the plant of pests, it is possible to detect almost everywhere – on the leaves, soil substrate, blooms, flowers. The danger of adults for plants also lies in the fact that they are able to hit several flowers at once, as they have wings and can fly from place to place. And small parasites can fly even to the adjacent flower. That is why experts recommend to isolate a plant from others infected with shields.
TRIPS can also harm cyclamen. Adults of these parasites have small sizes – about 1.5-2 mm. And, as a rule, they settle on foliage. Experts note that when plant infected with trips, it is imperative to immediately take measures and begin treatment. Otherwise, the sick flower will begin to dry and rapidly reset the reclined buds.
To pests that are able to hit cyclamen, also include cyclamen ticks. Reveal the disease caused by these parasites, in some cases it is extremely difficult. The fact is that these ticks have microscopic dimensions, which means it is difficult to determine using a conventional visual inspection. Damage the plant not only adult individuals, but also the larvae. Experts note that it is possible to accurately identify cyclamen ticks only using a microscope.
The risk of cyclamen infection with such ticks is significantly increasing, if there are plants in the room, too high temperature. Dry air can also increase the risk of flower infection with these pests. Specialists are recommended for the treatment of decorative plants from cyclamen ticks not only to use special preparations, but also change the microclimate performance. Only such integrated measures will contribute to the fact that the ill cyclamen will be able to save.
Come to damage cyclamen. In the early detection of these parasites, the affected plants are quite simple. Honey specialists do not advise medical trees with the treatment of infected flowers. The TLL in the process of its livelihoods is powered by the cyclamen juices, which leads to the fact that the flower infected with these parasites begins to wither. The plant also grows slower, and its leaves begin to curl.
How and what to treat?
Cyclamen treatment should be comprehensively. Before saving the flower, you should definitely determine which reason led to damage. It is extremely important to identify diseases caused by pests. If the damage to the plant led to changes in the microclimate in the room, in this case it is necessary to adjust the humidity and temperature, as well as the multiplicity of irrigation. To reanimate almost completely dried cycles, unfortunately, is not always possible. This is usually happening if the treatment has begun indefinitely. With strong damage to the root apparatus of the cyclameman, unfortunately, to say goodbye to it.
Treatment of diseases caused by pests is to apply special drugs. So to cure the sick plant from the Tly, it should be treated with an insecticidal agent, for example, “Aktara” or “Commander”. Processing the leaves affected by pests. It is more convenient to do this with a cotton swab, moistened in the medical agent.
After an insecticide was applied to the struck flower, it should be rinsed under the shower.
Making insecticidal processing is necessary and if the plant is affected by tryips. For this, these drugs are used as “Apachas”, “Akarin” and others. Before spraying the affected flower, an insecticidal agent must be dissolved with water. Do it necessary according to the instructions. Revip the plant will be able only if, in addition to insecticidal processing, adjust the humidity indoors. So, if the air in the room is too dry, in such a situation it is recommended to think about the acquisition of a moisturizer or on the placement on a low distance from the plant with water containers.
Insecticides are necessary for therapy of cyclamen from the shield. Fighting with them can be quite complicated. In some cases, several repeated treatments for the damaged plant from these pests are required. Usually, the flower should be processed at the interval of 2-4 weeks (depending on the selected insecticidal agent).
At the time of therapy, the sick cyclamen must be placed on quarantine.
Resuscitation of infected with gray rotting plants is carried out comprehensively. In case of the appearance of characteristic features of this pathological condition, the flower should immediately cut. You need to delete all damaged areas. To improve the status of cyclamen, move to a room, which is well ventilated, and any drafts should be deleted. An important component of treating from gray rot is reduced rapidness of watering. The accumulation of excess moisture in the soil substrate will only contribute to the progression of the disease.
After trimming damaged leaves, the plant must be treated with insecticidal drugs.
Treat sick cyclamen is quite difficult. Specialists note that preventive measures help significantly reduce the risk of lesions of flowers in various pests. Observe them recommended immediately after buying cyclamen. For good growth, the flower requires the optimal air temperature, as well as moderate watering. It is worth paying attention not to several tips.
- To determine any damage to the flower on time, it must be examined regularly. At the same time, special attention should be paid to foliage. Leaves need to be inspected not only from the upper side, but also from the bottom. If necessary, you can use a magnifying glass. This will detect even the most minor changes, which means, if necessary and start treatment in time.
- Before planting cyclames in the substrate, the soil is recommended to be processed. To this end, it is sterilized or steam. Some experts recommend processing a substrate with a weak solution of manganese.
- In order for cyclamen to grow well, the nutritious substrate in which it is located too hard to fertilize. So, the abuse of nitrogen fertilizers can cause damage to the root apparatus of the flower, it means that it will lead to its slowdown.
- The choice of optimal potted pot is very important. These decorative flowers are usually growing well in the average size tanks. Experts recommend choosing a pot for this beautiful flower in such a way that the distance between its clubnelluca and the pot of the pot was approximately 2.5-3 cm. Place a pot with a plant is better away from the heating devices.
