How can you get the plants to give more flowers? .

Add compost

Compost is one of the essential tools for our plants. The compost incorporates nutrients to the cultivation land and favors bacterial activity that will favor the fertility of the soil. Mix the compost with the soil when you sow for the first time and add from time to time depending on the type of plant (if it is annual or perennial) and the type of soil in which it grows (if it is more or less rich in organic matter).

Keep conditions stable

Changing external conditions are detrimental to plants, which is why it is especially important to pay more attention to them during seasonal changes to reduce or minimize extreme changes in temperatures, winds, water, etc. as much as possible. that can stress the plant and alter flowering. Help yourself with greenhouses, tents or other accessories to keep the plants safe.

Take care of the roots

Plant roots can be very delicate, especially the tips, and remember that it is through these that plants absorb nutrients and water from the earth, which is why they are very important. When you carry out the transplant or when you carry out the maintenance work on the potted plants, be very careful not to cut or damage the roots, since, in case of being damaged, the plant would take a while to recover and continue with its normal development. , including flowering.

Promotes growth

A trick to favor the growth and development of plants is not to cover with the earth beyond where the roots sprout. This helps the roots to be stronger.

Apply the mulch

Plants that grow in mulched soil tend to be more vigorous, less prone to pests and diseases, and of course produce more flowers than plants without mulch. This technique can be performed in various ways and in the medium and long term it brings many benefits ( read more )

The light

Light is essential for the plant, direct light for several hours a day can be an essential requirement for many plants to flower, while plants in shade tend to reduce the number of flowers they produce. But beware, excess light can also cause lack of flowering in some specimens, so you must know what light needs the plant has to be able to act accordingly.

You should also be careful with indoor plants near windows because the glasses have a magnifying effect and could cause burns to the foliage or flowers and it receives many hours of direct sunlight. .

Fix the plant

When you see that there are wilted flowers or that they are getting ugly, remove them, so the plant can focus on the other flowers and they will be receiving more nutrients. If we leave the flowers withered, the plant will be wasting energy and sap.

Also withered flowers tend to attract pest insects, so we are not interested in keeping them on the plant.

Control the risks

The excess of water usually favors the development of the foliage but it can also cause the absence of flowering. In fact, when the flowering date of the plant approaches, we can reduce the amount of water that we supply in the irrigations to favor flowering and keep it for longer.

The lack of water can cause the plant to produce a button but it falls off before it comes to flower.

No flowering

If the plant does not bloom, move it! Either in pots or directly in the ground, if you have tried everything and the plant still does not bloom, change its location because the plant is not having all the conditions it needs to be able to complete its cycle and flourish.
