The hyacinth

Irrigation of hyacinth

The hyacinth is a plant from Anatolia and North African areas and belongs to the large and varied group of Asparagaceae. This perennial plant, placed either outside or inside the house, normally needs to be wet, according to its location and the current climatic season. In spring and especially in summer it needs constant and generous irrigation, even daily, while in autumn it will be necessary to reduce and moderate watering, up to one or two weeks at the most, and stop it completely in winter, except for contingent needs. When irrigating, care must always be taken to avoid the formation of dangerous water stagnations, which can easily weaken the root system and thus cause the plant to wither.

Care and cultivation

This herbaceous plant, despite having remarkable aptitudes of resistance and adaptability, requires a soft and light soil, provided with sandy elements and provided with good drainage of excess water. Furthermore, if placed in a container inside the house, care must be taken to prepare a soil with a significant presence of peat, necessary to ensure correct softness and dryness. The hyacinth, as a rule, must not be subjected to particular pruning operations, as the periodic manual elimination of old branches and dried flowers is sufficient, obviously taking care not to cause damage to the plant. Finally, the plant fears particularly harsh temperatures: if this is the case, it must be suitably repaired with suitable protective veils and fabrics.

Hyacinth fertilization and fertilization

As for the correct fertilization of hyacinth, a few simple rules must be followed. As a rule, the fertilization work must be carried out in a large and constant measure in the vegetative period, more or less monthly, and suspended completely, or carried out with a very sparse frequency, in the cold season, once the leaves appear. completely dried out. For this purpose, solid fertilizers, also called slow release, or liquid fertilizers, suitably diluted in the watering water, can be used. In any case, it is advisable to use specific fertilizers for bulbous plants that contain a good quantity of nitrogen and potassium material, substances very suitable for the nourishment and physiological well-being of this enchanting flowering plant.

The hyacinth: Exposure of the plant and possible diseases

The hyacinth is normally placed in parks, but is also placed, in common practice, in a container inside the houses. If outdoors, the ideal environment will be sunny and illuminated, or even partially shaded, but always with minimum overall humidity. In the apartment, on the other hand, direct exposure to the sun’s rays and excessively low or cold temperatures must be avoided. Finally, this herbaceous plant can be the object of attacks, as well as molds and fungi due to environmental humidity, even insects peculiar to bulbaceous plants and parasites, such as the fearsome aphid. In this last case, it will be necessary to try to manually remove the insects from the plant and, in the most serious cases, use a good specific insecticide.
